Publisher Comments:

Its not easy being a nine-year-old kid in the middle of a busy, gifted family. Especially when the list of things youre good at includes only two items“Crying” and “Stopping crying”and the list of things youre not good at seems to be getting longer every day.

When Sophies mom suggests that shes good at being kind and just needs a little more practice, Sophie feels hopeful. But being kind to a grouchy old lady or her big sister, Nora, or the weird new girl at school isnt as easy as it sounds. If only Sophie were a queen, she could practice being kind to commoners instead. It would be much more dignified and elegant. And she would finally get to wear her very own diamond tiara. . . .

From the author of the popular Owen Foote books, here is a funny, observant novel about an irrepressible girl, as quirky and original in her own way as Owen is in his, in search of her own special talent.

Synopsis:

In this Newbery Honor Book from beloved author Beverly Cleary, eight-year-old Ramona Quimby's zest for life is infectious as ever. Whether speaking her mind to her third-grade teacher, or befriending her schoolyard bully, Ramona can't be kept down!

Then one day an embarrassing incident in the classroom leaves Ramona completely humiliated. Can she bounce back from this one?

Supports the Common Core State Standards

Synopsis:

Everything depends on Ramona.

Ramona's job is to be nice to fussy Mrs. Kemp, who watches her while her mother works. If Mrs. Quimby didn't work, Mr. Quimby couldn't return to college. On top of all that, third grade isn't turning out as Ramona expected. Danny the Yard Ape teases her and, on one horrible day, she throws up—at school. Being eight isn't easy, but it's never dull!

The Ramona books were always a favorite of mine in elementary school and I read the entire series more than once. I loved seeing what kind of mischief Ramona could get herself into, and how she gets herself out of difficult situations. Beverly Cleary is a brilliant writer who really knows the thoughts and feelings of her readers. I recomend reading all the Ramona Quimby books for the ultimate childhood experience!

I read this book countless times when I was a young girl in elementary school,and still treasure my original paperback copy.There is something in Ramona that I think a girl can identify with, especially any girl with any siblings.This is a timeless treasure written by one of Portland,Oregon's most prolific and celebrated authors,Beverly Cleary;this book is a more intimate glance inside the life of one of her more popular reoccurring characters,a schoolgirl named Ramona.I hope many generations to come continue to get to know Ramona,her sister Beezus,and their adventures that will hopefully be a wonderful part of their world as a child or as someone staying in touch with an inner child.
