R- Ramona

Ramona Forever  R- Ramona Quimby. I loved, loved, loved the Ramona books when I was a kid. Even though I was the big sister I could totally relate to some of the things that happen to Ramona throughout the books.  I would read some of the crazy things that happened to her, like cracking an egg on her forehead and I would actually be surprised that I hadn't done something like that. I could also totally relate to Ramona's imagination.

Do embarrassing and funny things happen to you that make you think of Ramona or other book characters?

LOVE Ramona! Such a great character!

Yeah, Ramona was awesome. Beverly Cleary was such a fantastic writer.

What I love most about Ramona is how she sticks around. Kids today relate to her just as much as kids of yesterday.

I love Ramona! I recently reread several of the books--and they're just as wonderful today as they were when I was a kid. :)

I also love Ramona. Loved the scene where she took one bite out of every apple in a barrel. Yes. I find myself making scenes when I enter a room, usually a meeting, where I'm running late!

When I was five or six I squeezed out a whole tube of toothpaste in the sink--it seemed like so much fun when Ramona did it. Luckily, it was NOT a very full tube. My parents were not happy and I had to pay to replace the tube (a lot of money when you're five!) That was when I learned to consider fictional consequences before emulating fictional actions.
