Publisher Comments:

Ramona Quimby's cozy seven-year-old world changes when her father unexpectedly loses his job. Quickly, Ramona resolves to do her part to help make ends meet, but her grand plan to star in a TV commercial backfires!

Despite Ramona's efforts to keep her father—and her family—cheerful, weeks go by as Mr. Quimby is unable to find work, and bills and worries pile up. As Christmas approaches, Ramona crosses out every item on her wish list, keeping only "one happy family" as her heart's desire.

Beverly Cleary's Ramona and Her Father is a Newbery Honor Book and has been called "true, warm-hearted, and funny" by ALA Booklist. In this glowing edition with lively new illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers, Ramona's spunky, generous spirit shines.

Synopsis:

Seven-year-old Ramona Quimby's world is turned upside-down when her father unexpectedly loses his job. Things grow tense in the Quimby house, but Ramona resolves to help in any way she can—even downsizing her Christmas list. But with bills piling up and her parents constantly stressed, Ramona wonders if life will ever go back to normal.

Beverly Cleary's Newbery Honor Book depicts an average middle-class family dealing with the realities of life. With the perfect mix of humor and warmth, Ramona shines as a spirited girl with her heart set on helping.

Supports the Common Core State Standards

Synopsis:

The family routine is upset during Ramona's year in second grade when her father unexpectedly loses his job.
