Ramona Quimby, one of the most loved characters in children's fiction, has now reached third grade. At school, she acquires a new teacher, Mrs. Whaley, who addresses the class as "you guys." At home, she helps the family "squeak by" as her father returns to college to become an art teacher. — All the Quimbys have their ups and downs, but none feels them more intensely than Ramona. Her low point is undoubtedly reached the day she throws up in class and Mrs. Whaley instructs the children to hold their noses and file into the hall. But three days later Ramona recovers her verve sufficiently to give a book report in the style of a T.V. commercial, bringing down the house with her final ad-lib line of "I can't believe I read the whole thing!"
Writing with humor and compassion, Beverly Cleary continues her chronicle of a child's growth and lovingly reaffirms the durability of the memorable Quimby family. They may not be nice all the time, but they stick together through good times and bad.

Any and all Ramona Quimby books would be, in my opinion, a huge benefit for teachers to share with their class. After having the Ramona books read to me growing up, I think these books would be most suitable for a second grade classroom. Beverly Cleary does a wonderful job of introducing readers to ...
Ramona Quimby is another character I think that girls can relate to. She's not perfect, her parents get on to her, she fights with her sister but she just wants to have fun. I remember when I was in 4th grade "Ramona's World" came out and I remember going to the book fair at school and buying it and...
