I have discussed my love for all thing Beverly Cleary many times before. (check out the pilgrimage my sons and I took in Portland one year). But, I just want to again stress how much I loved her books when I was growing up! So many things went into making me a reader, and these books had a huge part in it. These were the first books I remember being excited about a new one coming out. And I loved how the books kept up with the times.
I was also a little sister and was called a pest many a times by my older sister. Another reason I connected so strongly with these books.
Ramona the Pest was my favorite.
What are your Beverly Cleary memories?
