Ramona the Pest (Rpkg) (Reillustrated)
Ramona the Pest (Rpkg) (Reillustrated) | Beverly Cleary
35 posts | 137 read | 8 to read
Ramona's big day has finally arrived! This is the day she starts kindergarten and it's even better than she could have imagined. Her teacher promises her a present. She learns a great new song about "the dawnzer lee light." There's show and tell, learning to write her name, playing Gray Duck, and marching with the old kids in the Halloween Parade. But, she certainly proves she can be the peskiest kindergartender ever to Beezus' friend Henry Huggins and bossy Susan with the boing-boing curls. Things get out of hand when Ramona feels her teacher doesn't love her anymore and it's almost enough to make her the world's first kindergartener drop-out.

4.5⭐️ One of my favourite books from when I was younger. It was either my first or one of the first books that I chose from a bookstore (still have my original copy) when I was in grade 2. I chose the book because I recognized my grandma‘s name on it. I also liked the book because I felt the same way as a child and hated that I rarely got shiny new boots. #2022 #earlyreaders #fiction #bookreview #bookstagram #favourites

I never read the Ramona books as a kid, and I‘m not sure why! The adults in my life might have deemed her too “sassy.” 😆 Or (not unrelatedly) she might have intimidated my shy, pleaser kid self. Anyway, my grownup self enjoyed this and finds her adorable, and Stockard Channing‘s narration was great.

MicheleinPhilly Ramona was my role model. 😉 2y
Prairiegirl_reading Stockard Channing! Come on!! 💜 I honestly don‘t remember if I read these or not but I put the audio on hold immediately after reading your post. 😄 One thing I do remember very clearly about my childhood is Grease and how I played my cassette of the soundtrack until it broke. 2y
Christine @MicheleinPhilly 😁❤️ She‘s a great one! 2y

Hooked_on_books I was Ramona! I really related to her and loved reading her as a kid. I think Stockard Channing is a wonderful choice and I‘m glad you‘ve joined the Ramona party! 2y
Christine @Hooked_on_books Aww, well you are both wonderful! Thanks for the welcome to the party! 🎉 2y
AvidReader25 I listened to the whole series on audio with my daughter last year and loved them! 2y
Christine @AvidReader25 Glad to hear your endorsement of the rest of the audiobooks! I should listen to them. 2y

Whilst we did enjoy this, Beatrix and I both decided to take a break before we read the last two in the series. This book was a little more melancholy than the previous titles - I was sorry when Ramona overheard her teacher referring to her as a nuisance and had to hold back tears when Ramona‘s mother came to get her from school when she was sick, after Ramona had assumed she would not be able to leave work. Ramona is growing up.

Bookwormjillk Yes! I almost cried when Ramona was sick too. Talk about working mom guilt! 2y

I tagged Ramona because I WAS Ramona but also included Leslie Knope because that's ALL ME as an adult. 🙃
1) I played volleyball and basketball. I will watch pretty much any sport. ESPN can just play all day and I'm happy. I married a baseball player though so I'm a die-hard LA Dodger fan. 💙 #webleedblue
2) My family. I've had vertigo for almost 2 weeks and they have taken such great care of me. ❤️

Poor Ramona! She wants to be good (mostly), but kindergarten brings so many temptations. Who can blame her for wanting to tug on the very curly hair of another little girl? But when her be,over teacher tells her she can‘t come back to class if she won‘t stop, what will Ramona do?

limada I recently re-read the Ramona box set knowing how much I'd love them as a girl. They stood up. Ramona is still endearing! 3y

This was one beloved character that inspired me throughout my childhood. As an avid reader turned author, I believe writing children's books can be the best gift we can give to children. Ramona Quimby has always been a favorite character of mine indeed. I read other books about the beloved character, but this book is where it all begins for me to love her. Thank you, Beverly Clearly.

meagankc21 Oh wow, nostalgia! I remember reading these books 3y

amber_ldsmom I LOVED Ramona as a kid and still@do!That series really got me into reading. We listen to the audiobook collection now, and my husband and I laugh so much listening to Ramon‘s antics as parents. Our second oldest daughter is so much like her, we can‘t help but laugh. 😁 3y

So this happened... I was reading Ramona to my kindergarteners and I was on the Halloween chapter. Ramona was running around yelling, "I'm the baddest witch in the world!!" So I yelled it, only I didn't say "witch"... I instantly realized my mistake as my students started saying, "You said a bad word!!" and "My sister calls my mom that!" Luckily, no phone calls from angry parents yet wondering why I'm cursing at their kids...?

Oh, Ramona. Kindergarten drop-out with a doll named Chevrolet and singing about the dawnzer lee light, you hold up to my memories. I cannot believe how long ago this was written because it really does not feel dated, other than in a few small instances that are easily forgiven. Beverly Cleary was ahead of her time, and Ramona is a timeless character.

DebinHawaii Your review makes me want to reread this. Love Ramona and Beverly Cleary! ❤️ 5y

Parker and I listened to this today and yesterday. I enjoyed it. I loved these books as a kid. I couldn't tell if she liked it. #audio #ramona #beverlycleary

Foragingfantasy I'm feeling this soooo hard!! I LOVED these books as a girl. I read countless times, I cant get my niece or sons to even look at them. I'm like, but she cracks a raw egg on her head at school! She takes one bite of all the apples!! She's so funny! 6y
Vexingcircumstance @Foragingfantasy I bought all the books when my daughter was born but she doesn't like me reading to her and she's special needs and legally blind (we found that part out recently) so she won't be learning to read them herself anytime soon (or at all unless we find them in Braille and are able to teach her Braille - resources for kids with visual impairment is non-existent here). So I was pretty excited to find them on Audio at the library. 6y
Vexingcircumstance Ramona was one of the names I considered for my daughter lol. I loved these books so much. I was basically an introverted version of Ramona. I remember reading the books and being like "but everything she does makes sense! Why are the adults so mean to her?!" (edited) 6y

#JuneTunz #AmericanKids Ramona and Beezus Quimby and Henry Huggins from Klickitat Street in Portland, OR were some of my favorite American kids when I was growing up. Even though I was the youngest in my family, I was more of a well-behaved Beezus-type--but I wanted to be more imaginative, adventurous and even a bit bratty like Ramona. 😆These are just some of the books in the series and some of my favorites.

As good as I remembered. My 5 yo couldn't get enough. Ramona figuring out kindergarten, dropping out of kindergarten, gaining independence. I think my son completely identified with her struggles from wanting to have the new rubber boots, to the thrill of losing a first tooth. Loved sharing this book with him. #kidlit #kidclassic #nostalgia #welllovedread #riotgrams

In honor of my inability to adult, I'm serving up my favorite fictional child for TBT. I love Ramona because she is so real, and her family and their struggles are real, in a way that lots of kid lit isn't anymore. Ramona is spunky and funny and exactly the kind of kid I love.

MrBook Ramona was great! 😊👍🏻 7y

The first time I ever read about a kid feeling scared about school, or worried about her parents, or resentful of her sister was with Ramona Quimby. It's also why I still feel joy when I see gummy bears and Pink Pet erasers! Happy 100th birthday, Beverly Cleary. You had a huge impact on my life. ❤️
