Over de Auteur

Beverly Cleary was born on April 12, 1916. Her family lived on a small farm in McMinnville, Oregon, before moving to Portland. Ironically, this internationally known author of children's books struggled to learn how to read when she entered school. Before long however Cleary had learned to love toon meer books, and as a child she spent a good deal of her time in the public library. Cleary attended Chaffey Junior College in Ontario, Ca. and went on to earned her first B.A. in 1938 from the University of California at Berkeley. Her second degree, a B.A. in library science, was bestowed by the University of Washington in Seattle in 1939. She worked for a short time as Children's Librarian in Yakima, Washington, before moving to California. Cleary began her writing career in her early thirties. Her first book, Henry Huggins, was published in 1950. Her stories and especially her characters, Henry Huggins and Ramona Quimby, have proven popular with young readers. Her books have been translated into twenty languages and are available in over twenty countries. Some of her best-known titles are Ellen Tebbits (1951), Henry and the Paper Route (1957), Runaway Ralph (1970), and Dear Mr. Henshaw (1983). Several television programs have been produced from the Henry Huggins and Ramona stories. She also wrote two memoirs, A Girl from Yamhill (1988) and My Own Two Feet (1995). Cleary has won many awards for her contributions to children's literature, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award in 1975, the Catholic Library Association's Regina Medal in 1980, the John Newbery Medal in 1984 and the National Medal of Arts in 2003. Beverly Cleary died on March 25, 2021 in Carmel, California. She was 104 year old. (Bowker Author Biography) toon minder

I know there are readers who find Ramona’s brattiness kind of intolerable, I do understand that, she can be a lot, she is definitely a lot in this one, but that’s just never bothered me. I love Ramona no matter how messy she gets, maybe even because of how messy she gets, and I love these books, I love that Beverly Cleary never felt the need to soften a little girl’s edges the way so many other books do.

This didn’t have as much family time as the first in the series did, and I did miss that, but I was still thoroughly entertained by Ramona’s rocky entry into kindergarten. The dramatic moments, the hissy fits, heels kicking her bedroom wall, feeling sorry for herself, longing for her teacher to her, all that read as real, true to things we’ve all felt at one point or another. Same with the comedy, there’s such an organic feeling to it, a kid misunderstanding the definition of a word or not knowing what time actually is quarter past the hour, etc., these are genuinely funny bits and funnier still because they’re situations you could see actually playing out, that’s why this still holds up strong now, it’s filled with these moments that are still identifiable long past the era they were written in.… (meer)

Second grade is not going to plan for Ramona Quimby. Rather than finding fun and excitement, she's surrounded by change and confusion. Her father has lost his job, her mother is going to work full time, and her big sister Beezus has become a teenager. But rather than mope, Ramona decides to deal with things as only she can. What follows is a funny, tender story about a family in flux. While not the first book in the Ramona series, it is the first to deal with such serious issues. Cleary, however, shows herself more than capable of handling the weighty situations with a canny blend of humor and wisdom. Although it was written more than 30 years ago, this Newbery Honor book is still a powerfully relevant story about the importance of family, especially in tough economic times.… (meer)

Now starting kindergarten, Ramona is looking forward to growing up, learning to read, and riding a bike instead of a tricycle. She's especially sensitive to being called a pest, especially when she's just trying to figure out how this whole growing up thing works, and adults can't understand why certain things are important to her or why she sees life the way she does.

It's rather delightful to reread this series as an adult. As a child, I related so much to Ramona and her confusion about how adults were taking what she said when her thoughts and feelings seem so reasonable to her. And now, of course, I can also see everything from the parents' point of view. Cleary manages to convey both without talking down to her audience or minimizing their feelings.… (meer)
