Beverly Cleary's books are always a delight! Ramona is constant entertainment. Funny, funny book.
Ramona wished her mother would quit her job and stay home all day the way she used to. Then maybe she'd have time to notice that Ramona was not a baby anymore. she was seven and a half and quite grown up! If her mother stayed home, Ramona wouldn't have to be dropped off at Howie's grandmother's after school, and she wouldn't have to put up with Howie's little sister, Willa Jean. The worst part was when people said that Willa Jean reminded them of Ramona.
But after working all day, both Mr. and Mrs. Quimby were so tired they didn't have much time to notice how grown up Ramona had become. Ramona did get their attention when she did something "not-so-grown-up" like squeezing all the toothpaste out of the tube. If only Mrs. Quimby would stay homet hey could do grown-up things together, as she did with Ramona's sister Beezuz.
Good book by Judy Blume about a preteen girl who wants more of her mother's attention.

A must-read for all kids!
Ramona and her hi-jinks....
This is another of the great Beveryly Cleary books. I read this book over and over when I was younger. Highly recommended!
Funny and wonderful to read aloud with your children. This seris should be required reading for parents who need a guilt break and to see things from a silly, childish perspective. I have read the seris multiple times to myself and to my daughter.
