Having a little sister like four-year-old Ramona isn't always easy for Beezus Quimby. With a wild imagination, disregard for order, and an appetite for chaos, Ramona makes it hard for Beezus to be the responsible older sister she knows she ought to be…especially when Ramona threatens to ruin Beezus's birthday party. Newbery Medal winner Beverly Cleary delivers a humorous tale of the ups and downs of sisterhood. Both the younger and older siblings of the family will enjoy this book.

"An important reminder of the good that can come when you throw yourself fully into any situation and draw outside the lines," says Brightly.com in their article "12 Girls from Fiction Who Are Their Own Heroes."

      I think that this book was great because whoever read this book would learn a lesson. The message the story was trying to tell us was that even though you don't like a sibling doesn't mean your sibling has to like you. If you don't like your brother and sister, it doesn't matter because they always argue with each other. I decided to read this book because I have an older sister that is just like Beezus. She always yells at me for being annoying! That is what Beezus thought about Ramona in this book. This book was very interesting so that is why I give this book a 5 star.

        We listened to this book on CD when we traveled to see family earlier this school year. My four year old loved hearing the story about Ramona and all of her silliness! I enjoyed hearing her laugh to the stories I laughed to when I was a little girl. I loved Ramona when I was little and read all of the Ramona books!

          This book is a great book that has lots of funny humor and some sad parts. It is realistic fiction that can have some twists.
