I really, really do.
Her books made me giggle in the third grade, and they still do. Plus, now I get to read them with my 5 year old….who also loves them. The Ramona Series is fabulous. The writer’s flow is perfect; I have no trouble reading them aloud. Trust me, we have read a LOT of books. Some are just plain hard. to. read. outloud. They don’t flow. The words don’t mesh. The story is sloppy.* (I won’t mention the ones I know, because I am sure you are naming your own in your head.) Beverly is a genius. That is my story and I am sticking to it.
We just started Henry Huggins. He makes me less sad that we read all the Ramona books because Henry has some crazy ideas too!
*Disclaimer – I am in no way a book critic. I just enjoy reading with my kids!
