it was ok
bookshelves: childrens

I was so excited to read this outloud to my 6&4yo boys because I remembered loving this series as a kid. We didn't love it and tried to perservere, reading a chapter here & there like required reading. I think we quit about 3/4 through, although my 6yo finished on his own. It just seems outdated, both the writing style and the situations. And I didn't think Ralph was a very lovable character with traits that I'd want my sons to emulate. I love Beverly Cleary but I think we'll try the Ramona series instead.
