This book is about a seven year year girl, Ramona, and her mother. Ramona cannot decide whether she wants to stay mommy's little girl, or grow up. Ramona has an older sister who she does not exactly get along with. Ramona's mom invites some people over for lunch and Ramona has to watch the little girl. But Ramona always seems to get in trouble. Everything "bad" that happens in the house, she is a part of. At the end of the story, Ramona realizes that even though she wants to be mommy's little girl, it's time that she grows up some. I liked this book, a lot of young girls can relate to the things that happened in this story. I would love to have this book in my classroom library.

Ramona strives for and desires to be the apple of her mother's eye. Beezus, her sister, is the one always referred to as 'your mother's daughter', but Ramona wants that. After several mishaps along the way, Ramona doesn't realize how much her mother loves her until she packed her bags to run away and her mother told her how much she'd be missed. This would be a great read for any young classroom to read as a beginning chapter book.

I've read this numerous times, but each time I'm struck with how Ms. Cleary makes Ramona funny without making her out of the ordinary. In fact, part of the humor of Cleary's books is that her kids are so normal - and they are dealing with the typical problems of childhood. Great book in the series. (2009 reading was actually a listen to the audio version starring Stockard Channing.)

In the book "Ramona and her Mother", Ramona feels like she isn't her mothers girl and Beezus is the one making her mother proud. Even though the guests at the bruch and her parents feel like Ramona is like mess and bratty William Jean, Ramona highly doubts it. But as time goes on, she feels like her mother is right. When she tries to make slacks for her elephant, it looks horrible and she ends up quarraling with her mother. As she is staying at the Kemps, she spills blue coloring onto Howie and ends up getting into more disceraging trouble. To Ramona and her sister tension is growing when their parents have a big fight and her mom hits her dad. For Ramona, the last staw is drawn when she thinks her teacher tattled to her mother that she wore her pajamas to school. When she tried to run away, while she was packing her mother offered to help her. At first Ramona was shocked, but soon realised that her mother made it too heavy for her to carry. Then after a little bit of thinking, she now knows that she will always be her mothers girl.People who read my reviews are probebly wondering why I am reading a book like this. I read Dracula for crying out loud! The reason I read this is because of the time. In my school I have to do 5 books a simester on here and write two paragraphes. Unfortunatly, I lost track of time and I have less then a day to do a Library Thing. Since this was short enough and it wasn't a baby book, I thought I could pull it off. From now on I need to read and do this sooner! I hope my teacher reads this.

Another classic by Beverly Cleary. As a resident of Portland, OR I find it fun to come across land marks and references to my adopted hometown. Why else would so many childrens stories involve rain? Ramona is a perfect character for boys and girls to relate to with their own ordeals in growing up.

Another wonderful Ramona book by Beverly Cleary. It's a joy to read as an adult and I will reread it. What else can I say?
