The Ramona Quimby books are truly timeless. Speaking as a high schooler, I can say that they still are some of my favorites even though they are children's stories. These books are funny and entertaining for all ages, and every time I listen to them I am laughing and loving these stories more and more. Beverly Cleary is extraordinarily clever and comes up with amusing yet realistic predicaments. I give this series a solid 5 stars as it still grabs my family and I today.

5 years old can be a difficult age...for everybody. Ramona is learning all kinds of things: how to act in public & around other people, how to deal with her older sister, how to communicate in a meaningful way with her parents & kindergarten teacher, how to be a friend to her kindergarten classmates, how to be an independent young person without getting in to MORE trouble. Whew! That is a lot of learning for a young person, but Ramona is up to the task. She wants to learn; she wants to fit in. Some of the most difficult lessons in life begin around this age.

One of the things I enjoy most about Ramona, specifically at this age (5), is that she has such strong feelings about things & reacts in what SHE feels is the most appropriate way. Of course it is not always the best way to handle a situation, but I can't help but laugh & enjoy Ramona's direct responses. I think my favorite is when she creates this wonderful, life-like owl during the class' art project time. The girl sitting next to her copies every single thing about her owl therefore creating an exact replica of HER owl. She was NOT going to allow everybody to think that SHE had copies THAT GIRL'S owl. So she throws her owl away, not submitting an owl at all. This eats at her. She was so excited to about this project, & now, due to her copycat neighbor, she didn't have one for her parents to see on parent's night. To get back at the copycat neighbor, she walks up to it & pounds it flat. If Ramona can't have a beautiful owl on display, why should that girl?! HA HA HA! I saw so much of my own attitude & that of my youngest daughter that it made me laugh & cry - laugh at the thought of me at that age, cry as I thought of dealing with our 3 year old getting to that age.

Age recommendation: all ages

On a scale of 1-10 stars, I give it 9.
