To one of the most beloved children’s writers of all time. Here are the classics:
Ramona the Pest by Beverly Cleary centers around youngest child Ramona but has much to do with the sibling relationship of Ramona and her older sister Beezus. Ramona and Beezus are such a joy to read about because we all recognize ourselves in them. They are at times demanding, bossy, cranky, etc but they are loving kids who try hard to do what’s right while at the same time having an interesting and fulfilling childhood. What’s not to like?! Read one and I’ll bet you will check out the entire Ramona and Beezus series. Pegged for ages 8-12.
Henry and Ribsy by Beverly Cleary centers around Henry Huggins and his irrepressible and mischievous dog Ribsy. Like the Ramona books, there is a Henry series. It gets even more fun as Ramona and Beezus live in Henry’s neighborhood and show up in Henry’s stories. Both series share the same true to life, timeless experiences that we all have in some form or another. Pegged for ages 8-12.
