Tuesday humor. But seriously tho, take me b a c k to Klickitat Street!
So this happened... I was reading Ramona to my kindergarteners and I was on the Halloween chapter. Ramona was running around yelling, "I'm the baddest witch in the world!!" So I yelled it, only I didn't say "witch"... I instantly realized my mistake as my students started saying, "You said a bad word!!" and "My sister calls my mom that!" Luckily, no phone calls from angry parents yet wondering why I'm cursing at their kids...?
Hello, my name is erin and I am@not buying and books this year in honor of participating in the #MtTBR challenge...,
But no one said no BOOKISH wares, right???!???
I just bought this poster. I have no chill for Ramona and punk rock.
Thank you @bookriot for the link!
Oh, Ramona. Kindergarten drop-out with a doll named Chevrolet and singing about the dawnzer lee light, you hold up to my memories. I cannot believe how long ago this was written because it really does not feel dated, other than in a few small instances that are easily forgiven. Beverly Cleary was ahead of her time, and Ramona is a timeless character.
Onto book two!
#JuneTunz #AmericanKids Ramona and Beezus Quimby and Henry Huggins from Klickitat Street in Portland, OR were some of my favorite American kids when I was growing up. Even though I was the youngest in my family, I was more of a well-behaved Beezus-type--but I wanted to be more imaginative, adventurous and even a bit bratty like Ramona. 😆These are just some of the books in the series and some of my favorites.
As good as I remembered. My 5 yo couldn't get enough. Ramona figuring out kindergarten, dropping out of kindergarten, gaining independence. I think my son completely identified with her struggles from wanting to have the new rubber boots, to the thrill of losing a first tooth. Loved sharing this book with him. #kidlit #kidclassic #nostalgia #welllovedread #riotgrams
Happy 101 Beverly clearly !! Thank you for all the adventures you took me on during my childhood ❤️📚📖
Beverly Cleary was one of the most influential #womenwriters of my childhood. This book in particular was my favorite and I was thrilled to find an image of my cover. I might need to go back and do a Cleary re-read.

In honor of my inability to adult, I'm serving up my favorite fictional child for TBT. I love Ramona because she is so real, and her family and their struggles are real, in a way that lots of kid lit isn't anymore. Ramona is spunky and funny and exactly the kind of kid I love.
The first time I ever read about a kid feeling scared about school, or worried about her parents, or resentful of her sister was with Ramona Quimby. It's also why I still feel joy when I see gummy bears and Pink Pet erasers! Happy 100th birthday, Beverly Cleary. You had a huge impact on my life. ❤️
