Thanks for sharing all these great links, Elaine. I just recently finished up my Reading Ramona Project.

I LOVED reading Cleary's books aloud to my elementary students--and my students fell in love with spunky Ramona. We had such fun sharing laughs about the things Ramona did and the predicaments she got herself into.

I've loved Ramona for years and recently have enjoyed reading it again with my daughter. We went to the movie and thought it was great! Thanks for sharing all these links.

Peaceful Reader,

I'm glad you liked Ramona and Beezus. I was sorry to hear that Beezus is a teenager in the movie. I hope it didn't change the flavor of the Ramona tales too much. I think I'll wait until the movie comes out on DVD to watch it.
