it was amazing

I have been reading all of the Ramona books, in order, to my oldest son for the past couple of months. What is amazing to me is how much I remember from these books, and I haven't read any of them for 30 years. Beverly Cleary is amazing. She's so good at seeing the world through kid and grown-up eyes at the same time. And she's so funny. Hearing my son laugh out loud every time Ramona does or says something pesky or silly is music to my ears. We are now on the last Ramona book (Ramona's World) and I will honestly be sad when we are done with it.

Jodi I am just beginning to read the series to my daughter and I love hearing her laugh too. She reminds me a little of Ramona - mischeivous and creative. I loved these books from my childhood and am so glad to be "passing" them on to her. I know a few people who have written comments have stated that the books are "dated" but I think that is what adds to their sweetness. Enjoy reading the last one to your son and hopefully they are fuzzy memories for him as he grows as they were for you. I hope for the same for my daughter.
