B- Beezus Quimby

Beezus and Ramona (Ramona, #1) B is for Beezus. I grew up reading the Ramona books and while I totally related to Ramona and her imagination and some of the funny things that happened to her like the time she cracked an egg on her head at school. But I'm also the big sister which meant that I could also relate to Beezus as she dealt with little sister Ramona.

Are you the oldest, youngest or middlest in your family? Which Quimby did you relate to?

Middle Sister! I could relate to both. I loved the scene where Ramona sat in the basement and took ONE bite out of each apple in the barrel, "because the first bite is always the best."

I'm the youngest but have an older brother, so our interaction was very different than that offered in the Beezus books (just to be clear, I had the nicest big brother on the planet not a pesky mean one). But I did love the Beezus books when I was growing up!

I´m the youngest out of 3 sisters and I never read the Beezus books...:D

I'm the youngest and related more to Ramona. I never thought to ask my sister if she felt like Beezus! I love the Beverly Cleary books, great choice for B.

I'm the oldest. I can relate to younger siblings being annoying. I have never actually read the Ramona books. My kids read them though and loved them.

I'm the oldest, but I just loved Ramona. Aww, I'm gonna have to reread those books!

Oh I was Ramona all the way! Even my mom thought so, which is why she picked up those books for me in the first place!

I LOVED these novels :D I am a middle child so I kind of related to both Beezus and Romona. Excellent A-Z topic, btw!

I loved these books.
In the family, I was the responsible one ;D I am 5/8. We have an older set of three and a younger set of four with a proper "baby" but I do think of my self as being a middle child.

I was the youngest in the family, so I related best to Ramona. I still related to Ramona after she became the middle child.
