This warm-hearted story of a mother's love for her spirited young daughter is told beautifully by Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary. This chapter book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 7 to 9 who are reading independently. It's a fun way to keep your child engaged and as a supplement for activity books for children.

Ramona Quimby is no longer seven, but not quite eight. She's "seven and a half right now," if you ask her. Not allowed to stay home alone, yet old enough to watch pesky Willa Jean, Ramona wonders when her mother will treat her like her older, more mature sister, Beezus.

But with her parents' unsettling quarrels and some spelling trouble at school, Ramona wonders if growing up is all it's cracked up to be. No matter what, she'll always be her mother's little girl...right?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 2-5. Ramona's antics are famous but her closeness to her mother suggests this book as a good family read-aloud for Mother's Day; also remember Eleanor Clymer's My Mother Is the Smartest Woman in the World and Lois Lowry's Anastasia books."
