This book is relatable to most students who are reaching the age to read chapter books. The language is fun and the plot is exciting. The characters are entertaining.

Ramona Quincy, Age 8 by Beverly Cleary is a realistic fiction book that was published in 1981. Ramona is starting the third grade and she is very excited. She had a new friend named Yard Ape. She has to go to the Kemp‘s house after school and she does not like being nice to little Willa Jean. Ramona one day had thrown up in class and she felt as if her days couldn‘t get any worse than they already were.

Published in 2009, this book is about a girl who faces the many challenges of third grade. It is a relatable fun, light hearted chapter book that opens children up to understanding the character and her feelings. I‘d say the main character is convincing and credible to today‘s children and this can help the reader relate to the characters personalities and struggles.

#HelloThursday | childhood edition 👧🏻
Contingent upon the particular age of childhood, since answers vary greatly from ages 4 to 7 to 10, I‘m basing mine upon the 2nd grade/age 7 era.

1. Ramona Quimby series.
2. Reading in my room, knowing my parents were at the other end of the house, making sure I was safe, cared for,& protected. It was a glorious feeling that I miss so much.
3. Every chore! 😝
4. RockStar Popple; JEM doll; Nintendo

Ooh, today‘s challenge is fun! This isn‘t quite from the year I was born but very close to it and it‘s one of my all-time childhood favourites (does anyone not love Ramona?)

I‘ve already finished one book and if I get my butt in gear, I may be able to finish a second one tonight. So far, so good!

JacqMac @Kaye @CouronneDhiver @AmyG I really like her. I‘m not sure I want to live that long either, though. But if I make it to 80, I plan on eating cake everyday. 2y
Kaye @JacqMac I plan on eating cake every day now but I usually talk myself out of it. I‘ve only had cake about 2 times in the past year. @AmyG Why don‘t you want to stick around as long as possible ? You might miss something. 😮 (edited) 2y
Smrloomis @Kaye I eat out of the vending machine almost everyday. Does that count? 😂🤔 I think I‘m with @AmyG - not really aiming for quite that long but I‘ll probably change my mind 😉 2y
AmyG @Kaye I have a friend who is 105. She has convinced me I don‘t want to live THAT long. 2y
JacqMac @Kaye @Smrloomis @AmyG I had a grandma, two great grandmas, and a great grandpa that all made it into their 90‘s. It‘s my experience that things really start to fall apart around 85. Probably faster if you eat cake everyday. Lol 2y
Kaye To each his own, I guess. Wasn‘t it George Burns that lived to 100 or close to it ? Smoked cigars. A newslady from our area lived way up into her 90s. She said eating chocolate candy is what kept her alive so long. All luck of the draw, I think. The older I get, the further I push the date I‘m ready to Check Out. I keep making goals, gotta live to see this, or live to do that. I keep thinking of stuff I need to stick around for. A lady President.. (edited) 2y
JacqMac @Kaye if you‘re strong and healthy, I say go for it! I just don‘t want to be old and sick. That‘s no fun. 2y
Smrloomis @Kaye @JacqMac yes, I must agree. Only if I‘m healthy and can do (mostly) what I want. And a female president would be nice too! 2y
Smrloomis @AmyG 105, wow! 2y

We've been friends since we were like, 8 years old & I used to force her to roller skate all over the neighborhood with me & not judge me for bringing a giant stuffed animal duck to all of her sleepovers (I miss you, Mr. Quackers).

Her favorite author is John Irving.

One of my favorite bookish characters was published the year I was born! 1981 saw a number of esteemed authors publish: from Stephen King, to Salman Rushdie, to Maya Angelou, to Shel Silverstein, and Toni Morrison, but one of my favorite childhood authors stands out in my mind, Beverly Cleary!

GUYS. My husband and I were talking about all of the children books we still have from our childhood (Charlotte's Web, Winnie the Pooh, Fantastic Mr Fox, Stuart Little, Where the Wild Things Are), and my husband got all serious and was like, "Wait, where are all my Ramona Quimby books?" ??? I've known him 14 years and never knew he read Beverly Cleary as a kid. Might love him more now. ?

I apologize in advance for what will be multiple #childprotagonist posts. There are just so many great ones to choose from. Here are a selection from my childhood. Ramona was my favorite because she was so dang relatable. I still think of her shouting "guts, guts, guts" when she was so just so frustrated. I feel like that quite often and swearing loudly does seem to help! My cuss words aren't quite as kid friendly though!

#funfridayphoto I'm a bit hard pressed to come up with a character that truly reminds me of myself as an adult, but when I was a kid I completely identified with Ramona. I was curious, a bit of a handful, and pretty unafraid of things. I never filled the sink with toothpaste, but I kinda wanted to! And I gobbled up all of these books.
