Ramona's World is a wonderful and humorous story. Ramona is a young girl entering the fourth grade. She experiences this transitional time with humor, curiosity, and with a few struggles. The reader moves with Ramona on her search for friendship, identity, and responsibility. The experiences of Ramona are ones with which many students will identify.

I really like Stockard Channing's voice telling the story. Her voice is clear, distinct, and warm, making her very easy to listen to and thus makes the story of Ramona all the more enjoyable. As for the actual book content, I read Ramona when I was younger and it seems that Ramona is a little more mature in this book as opposed to prior books in the series. Students should be able to identify with both the characters of Ramona and her older sister Beezus.

Follows the adventures of nine-year-old Ramona at home with big sister, Beezus and baby-sitter, Roberta, and at school in Mrs. Meachum's class.

In this book, Ramona is a fourth-grader. She becomes best friends with Daisy Kidd, a new girl at school, who is friendly and not too perfect. Ramona also has a new baby sister at home, and Beezus is going to her first boy-girl party. To me, this is not the strongest of the Ramona books. It's still enjoyable, though. One of my favorite things about these books is that Beverly Cleary seems so in touch with how kids feel and with what matters to them, and that's what makes the Ramona books seem so authentic.

Ramona's World is about the transition to fourth grade. Ramona is excited and knows it will be the best year so far. However, when things do not exactly go how she pictures it, she does not let it get her down in the end. Fourth grade is still the best year so far.I really enjoyed this book. I like stories with the school setting and I think it makes it easy for the students to relate to the story, no matter their gender. It is a funny and realistic view from a student's eyes.This story can be read to students that are coming to the end of their third grade year. It may help them realize not to get their expectations up too high, and understand that things always turn out for the best. It could also be incorporated into lessons on responsibility, because it tells about her responsibility for her schoolwork and being a good role model for her little sister.

A Ramona book I hadn't read before! I loved that Ramona has a baby sister and Ramona is as funny and adorable as she was as a four-year-old.

Oh, how I missed Ramona! I wish Cleary would write a teen Ramona series, it would be interesting to see how her life has turned out. It's odd, but I remember loving Ramona as a child, and in this book more than anything, I was really interested in Beezus's life (hence the Teen Ramona idea). As always, Ramona is relatable to any child, and even more so now with the addition of a lovable best friend, Daisy Kidd. The ending is sweet, but as always leaves you wanting more, and more will sadly not be appearing. Amazing book, should be read by everyone no matter the age.

Ramona's World is an action packed book. Ramona Quimby begins fourth grade and thinks it will be the best year of her life. She soon realizes that fourth grade is going to be alot of work. She has a new baby sister,Roberta,who looks up to her and she meets a new girl in school named Daisy. Travel through Ramona's life in the fourth grade by reading this book. She meets new friends, has a new teacher that she can't decide whether she likes her or not, and has many after school adventures.This book is a good book to read to upper elementary classes. I think they would enjoy this book at the beginning of the semester to show them that everyone has a hard time, at some point, in school.If I taught second or third grade, I would read this to my students. As I read it, there could me many activities to do. We would begin a journal that the students could write in as we read the book. At the end of every week they would be assigned to write what they liked about the book so far and predicted would happen next. Then after we finished the book, the students would be assigned to write if they have ever felt like Ramona did and why.

Ramona's World is a contemporary realism book for middle elementary readers who enjoy books about growing up. Ramona is a girl who is dealing with growing up as a middle child, working to be a good big sister to the baby, and a good little sister to her dramatic older sister. She ends up making friends with her nemesis since kindergarten at her birthday party at the end of the book.This book is excellent to read to girls in 2-4th grade who are dealing with growing up. It deals with real-life issues and helps students realize that they are not alone in their struggles.Extension ideas could include reading when a girl gets a new baby in the family or to children who have been feuding.

I love Ramona. She is enthusiastic and funny and real. This last book in the series finds Ramona growing up, learning to deal more maturely with her life. I'd love to see Ramona older - but then Ramona young is really what the series is about - looking at life through that unique viewpoint.
