Ramona Quimby is thrilled to be starting kindergarten. She likes a little boy named Davy so much she wants to kiss him, and she loves Susan's beautiful curls so much she wants to pull them to see them boing. Her teacher even promises her a present just for sitting still! So how does Ramona get in trouble? Well, anyone who knows Ramona knows that she is never a pest on purpose.

Об авторе

Beverly Cleary is one of America's most beloved authors. As a child, she struggled with reading and writing. But by third grade, after spending much time in her public library in Portland, Oregon, she found her skills had greatly improved. Before long, her school librarian was saying that she should write children's books when she grew up. Instead she became a librarian. When a young boy asked her, "Where are the books about kids like us?" she remembered her teacher's encouragement and was inspired to write the books she'd longed to read but couldn't find when she was younger. She based her funny stories on her own neighborhood experiences and the sort of children she knew. And so, the Klickitat Street gang was born! Mrs. Cleary's books have earned her many prestigious awards, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, presented to her in recognition of her lasting contribution to children's literature. Dear Mr. Henshaw won the Newbery Medal, and Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father have been named Newbery Honor Books. Her characters, including Beezus and Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ralph, the motorcycle-riding mouse, have delighted children for generations.

    I read this book aloud to my daughters.We loved it! Who doesn't love Ramona? I loved reading this series when I was a kid, and I am enjoying reading it again with my girls. We are making great memories snuggling on the couch and laughing together!!We will be continuing on in the series!

    As a child, I loved the Ramona books. So, when I saw Ramona the Pest at a used bookstore, I knew I had to buy it and reread one of my favorite books from my childhood. I was surprised at what I remembered! I remember Ramona pulling on Susan's curls and making a "boing" sound and I remember the way that Ramona turned her Qs into little cats! However, I forgot that she really was a pest. For as spunky as she is, Ramona really is a bit of a pain. Sometimes that was distracting. It was hard to empathize with Ramona at times, and as the main character, we should be rooting for her. But, perhaps that is just my age showing. Even though she had her ups and downs, she still was a really lovable character. I can see why so many children love this series and why it has stood up against other children's literature for over 50 years. I'd recommend this to young girls and boys in elementary school whether they are pests or not!

    Ramona Quimby has started kindergarten and is learning new things each day. Ramona is not only learning how to write her name but is learning life lessons. She is also making new friends. Ramona's reactions to her teacher and peers are so funny. I loved this book as a child and still love it today.I would use this book as a read aloud because it would make students interested in reading more of the ramona books.It's a classic :)

    Ramona the pest is a book about a person named Ramona being a rascal. One time she didn't want to go to school because there was a new teacher so she hid behind the trashcan for the whole day. One day she wanted to play in the mud and her boots got stuck in the mood. Here's what I liked about the book: I like the part when she was silly when she was a rascal because when she was silly she laughed and I like laughing. I didn't like when she was a witch at Halloween because she was very sad because she thought her mom would not know who she was. by Noah Fotenos on Nov 2010, age 6.

    The first day of Kindergarten may be the maost exciting day of Ramona's life. For years she has sat watching Beezus go to school and tell of all the fun things that go on there. Now her day has finally come. She loves her class and her teacher, but she hates the fact she is so misunderstood. She finds herself in trouble on a regular basis, but if people would just ask her, she has a perfectly good explanation for what she did. After her teacher tells her not to come back to Kindergarten until she is ready to behave, her life just isn't the same. After receiving a letter from her teacher, she decides things must not be too bad and decides to go back to school.I loved this book. I think Bevery Cleary does a wonderful job writing from a child's point of view.I think this a good book to share with your students about the importance of communication, and that there are two sides to every problem.

    Once of my favorites when I was little. A great book for kids, particularly curious and slightly naughty little girls.

    Cleary, Beverly. Ramon the Pest. Reillustrated edition, 2006. New York, NY. Harper Collins. (1968). Ramona the Pest is a delightful story of Ramona's first few months as kindergartner. This book will be enjoyed by the future kindergartner, as well as 5 to 8 years old children. Ramona's quest to be loved by her teacher, Miss Binney, brings laugh-out- loud moments to even the adult reader. The book is filled with firsts: first day of kindergarten, first time walking to school by herself, first time having a substitute teacher, first time losing a tooth, and the first time getting kicked out of class. Cleary handles each of Ramona's firsts with a sense of humor, allowing readers to connect their potential firsts with Ramona's character. Miss Binney empowers Ramona to believe in herself, without indulging or feeding in to Ramona's pest-like behavior. Being stuck in a mud hole and rescued by Henry the crossing guard, pulling the hair of her classmate, Susan, and being unrecognizable in her witch's mask, Ramona finds herself in predicaments that result in the growth of her character. Cleary's use of humor in each situation is impressive to all who read this book. It's a reminder to all to find the humor in any situation, no matter how scary it can be. Another book from the same decade is Konigsburg, E. L. From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. Atheneum, 1967.

    This is a cute story about a little girl going into the kindergarten. I chose to read this book because my focus student for Holt is on a very low reading level and I was trying to find books that would be an easy read for him. I think this book would be a good level and would be a fun read for him because it is entertaining for students to read about disruptive students.

    Beverly Cleary has a real gift. Although her books span a period of decades, they all read as though they were written today. There's a few odd details in some of them, but mostly they rely on good storytelling and... well, very real-seeming children.This is the story of Ramona's kindergarten year. It can be hard to find chapter books that are worth reading to kindergarteners, but this is it - Ramona actually seems like an actual child who is actually, really, truly in kindergarten! When she's told to "sit here for the present" she does, waiting for her present. When she struggles to refrain from pulling perfect Susan's curly "boingy" hair, you can feel how hard it is. And it's easy for all small children to understand why Susan's trying to act like a grown-up is annoying for Ramona.I would really suggest this as a first read-aloud chapter book for a young kid.

    I read the book Ramona the Pest. I chose it because Ramona was going to school just like I am in the fall. I am five years old, and I'm going to kindergarten. My favorite parts of this book were when Miss Binney sent the package to Ramona that had her missing tooth and when Ramona lost her tooth right when they were studying the letter T. It made me really nervous when Miss Binney kicked her out of school. I was worried that she was never going to go back. Overall, I think the book is fantastic because it's four stars because guess what? I really like it. I'm going to get the next Ramona book to read soon. --Elliot, age 5

    The entire time I spent reading this book, I felt like I was five. Ms. Cleary captures the essence of Ramona so strongly that I felt like I was seeing through her eyes. My outer adult was entirely silenced, and oh how I wanted that ribbon and those red boots.I'd give this to a child looking for funny easy fiction, or for a parent looking for a read aloud. This would be especially great to share with someone just about to start kindergarten - the chapters are short an self-contained enough to be read one by one.

    It is so great because romona is so like me and she is so funny.
    I really liked the part where romona is sitting on her stares and she is trying to think of a name to call howie and she thought of boobie boy.
    Keep writing romona books!

    Rereading in memory of Beverly Cleary, a childhood favorite author. She was perfectly keyed in to the emotional life of children; see the intensity of Ramona's anger in chapter #. Raw and perceptive!

    Ramona is a very realistic child. She never means to be a pest.

    I read this book to my kids, the younger of whom is in Kindergarten now. The author did a fabulous job of capturing a 5-year-old's voice and outlook on the world. All in all, the book was delightful, and I may have enjoyed it more as an adult and parent than I did when I was Beezus's age (which I was the last time I read it). It seems to have stood the test of time.

    Not ADHD and not a brat. Just a healthy, lively child who is sometimes impulsive but always means well. Well, ok, in the books that focused on Henry and Beezus she seemed brattier - but then, those were told from their pov and so she would seem that way. And she was younger in them, so she was naturally more self-centered

    It was fun to finally read a Ramona book and to get a good reminder of how 5 year olds see the world.

    In the second book of the Ramona series, Ramona Quimby is far less obnoxious than in "Bezus and Ramona." That's definitely a good thing. Perhaps Mrs. Quimby learned a few good discipline techniques between the first and second volume.Ramona starts kindergarten, and things go well for a while, but inevitably something eventually goes wrong, and Ramona decides she is through with school. Her teacher doesn't love her anymore, so she's not going to return.

    1.) Ramona is a kid that's in the first grade that is viewed as a pest due to her wild child ways and big personality. She drives some of her classmates crazy and at home her older sister bonkers. She seems to annoy her sister often and causes sibling arguements. She has problems in school listening and staying on task, chases a boy at recess because she likes him, and even finds herself getting suspended one day due to her curiousity. This book is a roller coaster of the trouble Rimana seems to get herself into.2.) Ramona reminds me so much of Junie B Jones which is why I love to read about them both although they are two different characters but so much alike. This outgoing girls that does not hold anything back are truly entertaining and seem to be a handful. I enjoy reading about the rambunctious little girl that has you on the seat of your pants to see what she will do next. 3.) Classroom idea would be to do a pros and cons list from the kids to see what good and not so good they see in Romana. How they relate or differ from her no if they think she is truly a pest or misunderstood

    I really identified with Ramona when I was her age.

    "This is a great day! A great day!" Sings Ramona on the first day of kindergarten. This is laugh-out-loud funny for kids and adults and chronicles the life of imaginative Ramona Quimby. It also speaks to the tender heart of children and helps them learn that they are not alone in their struggle through childhood. We were in the library last week and my four year old was upset about having to share a toy, but all I had to say was, "Are you making a great big noisy fuss?" and he was able to laugh it off. Thank you, Beverly Cleary!

    I remember reading these books as a young girl! I loved the stories about Ramona because they were witty and entertaining! This book is about Ramona's experience as a Kindergartener. She is named as a pest at home and school. She has a difficult time adjusting to nap time, getting along with peers and following directions. She really likes her teacher and tries to please her. She loves things like show and tell, dressing up for halloween, and running around on the playground. She finds herself in trouble left and right. She gets kicked out of her class when she can't stop pulling another students hair. She stays home and says she can't go back to school. Her mom can't seem to get a reason out of her. She is overjoyed when she receives a letter from her teacher, Mrs. Binney explaining she kept her tooth and wonders when she is coming back to school. Ramona excitedly decides to return to class!

    In the second book of the Ramona series, Ramona begins kindergarten with much excitement, and while she's eager to learn to read and write and loves her teacher, trouble follows her everywhere. Among her problems are being to told to sit in a seat "for the present" and expecting a gift, the temptation to pull the springy curls on her classmates head, declaring herself on Halloween to be "the baddest witch" and managing to frighten herself, and becoming a kindergarten drop out. Ramona feels ever so true to life with her kid logic and motivations and the book is laugh-out-loud funny.

    Cleary always delivers solid children's books, with a good message and believable characters and conflicts that are gripping but very domestic. When she writes about Ramona, though, her books really shine. Ramona is such an amazing little person. I like her earliest appearances, when she comes on the stage as a willful and stubborn young girl, who always understands what she is doing even when others think she is being unreasonable, and who is clever and creative and quite a handful.In this book, Ramona enters kindergarten. This is a big moment for Ramona, who wants to grow up as big as Beezus, and has been longing for this day for an eternity, or so it seems to her. Despite minor disappointments - like being forced to walk with Howie and Willa Jean each morning, or being told to wait here for the present, and not realizing that that doesn't mean she gets an actual present for waiting - nothing can dampen her enthusiasm. She loves her teacher, Miss Binney, and is excited for all of the grown-up things they are learning, like writing letters and her name. She has a few mishaps, but she always comes up with witty solutions. Her Halloween mask is scary, but Ramona is even more terrified when she thinks that no one recognizes her and she is completely anonymous. So Ramona makes a sign to name herself as she walks in the Halloween parade. She wants to kiss adorable Davy, but he won't let her. So Ramona chases him around the playground every morning. One day, though, Ramona doesn't know how to solve her problem. Miss Binney catches her pulling Susan's perfectly curled, bouncy hair, and disciplines her. Miss Binney asks Ramona if she can stop pulling Susan's hair. Ramona honestly responds that she can not, so Miss Binney asks her to stay at home until she can behave herself properly. Ramona is a kindergarten drop-out, as she calls herself. Despite pressure from her parents, her sister, and her friends, she refuses to return to school. Until a special letter arrives from Miss Binney, proving that her beloved teacher really does understand her, after all.Ramona is a great depiction of a five year old. She doesn't have the maturity or education to understand everything, but she thinks she does, and views adults with a blend of admiration and contempt. It is hilarious when she scorns the substitute teachers as unintelligent, since she doesn't recognize the letter Q, which Ramona has adorned with kitten ears and tails. She is more than just an irrational but endearing preschooler, now; she is a little girl, on her path to understanding and growing up with plenty of precious misunderstandings along the way. Above all, Ramona is honest and creative. Others may not always understand her, but she understands herself. I absolutely love Ramona, even though I can relate to her mom and think how exasperating it would be to raise Ramona. This is another wonderful Ramona books, that poignantly captures a child growing up in a middle class home with a caring family.

    I read this when I was in elementary school, and recently read it to my 5 year old, who, like Ramona the Pest, has just started kindergarten. The personality of Ramona is still strong and wonderful. Her insights and annoyance with grown-ups and their tiresome strictures made me snicker, and, I could tell, resonated with my 5yo -- who LOVED the book. Some social sexism mars the book -- I did a fair amount of on-the-fly editing rather than engaging in a discussion of WHY people would say Davy, a little boy, should run track, and not say that about Ramona, the little girl who was chasing him; why boys were crossing guards and not girls; what all the heteronormative role playing is about (Ramona is going to kiss Davy; she wants to marry Davy; she wants to marry Henry Huggins); and so on. But the core of the story is rather delightful, so I'd still recommend the book.And it was so interesting to see how times have changed in other ways too. A 5yo might be left alone in her house, to leave for school, and walk a few blocks, all by herself. She can "duck down" onto the floor of the car -- because the 5yo isn't in a carseat/booster seat. Anyway, I really enjoyed re-visiting Ramona, and recommend it for others too.
