Do you know Ramona? Maybe you met her as a child yourself, and enjoyed her escapades. If you want a lovable character to introduce to your children, check out Ramona.
With eight books to choose from, these delightful chapter books from Beverly Cleary capture the spirit of childhood. Meet Ramona and her older sister Beezus in the first installment titled Beezus and Ramona.
You can read the books in any order, or as you find them. At the beginning of the series, Beezus is in fourth grade and can’t stand her younger sister, Ramona. Ramona enters kindergarten in the second book, Ramona the Pest, and grows older in each book, ending in fourth grade in Ramona’s World. The classic books have thrilled readers for years, and kids continue to enjoy the themes of sibling rivalry, change, and growing older. You can buy the books individually to see how much your child enjoys the antics of the indomitable Ramona, or invest in a set of the first four books, the last four books, or get all eight titles together.
