Descrição

Ramona's job is to be nice to fussy Mrs. Kemp, who watches her while her mother works. If Mrs. Quimby didn't work, Mr. Quimby couldn't return to college. On top of all that, third grade isn't turning out as Ramona expected, even though she enjoys her class's new reading program, D.E.A.R. Danny the Yard Ape teases her, and, on one horrible day, she throws up-at school. Being eight isn't easy, but it's never dull!

Sobre o autor

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.

    This was a very nostalgic re-read. Some of the details are a little dated, such as Ramona playing with the buttons on a cigarette machine at the Whopperburger, but the basic story is still good. Ramona's problems seem trivial to adults, but Cleary reminds the reader that those problems seem huge when you're a kid.

    Ramona is starting third grade, at a new school where she needs to ride a bus. Her sister is off to junior high, her father is switching part-time jobs and going to school to become a teacher, and her mom is still working full time. Changes everywhere for the Quimby family. Ramona is surprised by her new teacher, Ms. Whaley, who is informal and humorous but stern, but Ramona thinks she likes her. She also has a new nemesis in Davy, who she calls Yard Ape. He is challenging, and Ramona likes challenges. Not everything is perfect for Ramona. She really can't stand spending her afternoons with Willa Jean. She misses seeing her mom, and is worried about her dad's future. The worst blow, though, comes when she overhears her teacher calling her a nuisance. Ramona is devastated. Her hurt makes it hard for her her to forgive her mother for putting a raw egg in her lunch instead of the hard-boiled one she asked for, and the general discontent seems to be contagious, as it spills over her entire family.

    This was the first chapter book I read in elementary school.

    Summary of book: Ramona is an 8 year old third grader in your typical family. She has an older sister names Beezus, a mom, a dad and a cat named picky-picky. This book invites us in to Ramona's first day of third grade, her life at home and most importantly, the way she interacts with her family. All children on some level can relate to any one of Ramona's stories- we see her sad, happy, angry, excited- and everything in between. This book is easy for children to read and has the added bonus of being a chapter book. I highly recommend it.Personal reaction: I have read most of the Ramona books, so re-reading this book was a nice visit down memory lane. My mother read these books to me when I was younger. Every night we would read one chapter and sometimes if we started early enough- we could read two. I liked Ramona because she was fun to read about. She was very opinionated and so was I. I remember reading it and thinking that there were other kids just like me out there too. Extension Ideas:1. I would have the children draw me a picture of their family- to include pets and have them tell me what the difference and similarities are between their family and Ramona's family.2. I would do the blue oatmeal and larvae experiment that Ramona's class does to let the students see the life process of fruit flies.

    I like Ramona and Beezus, and I really enjoyed this book, but I prefer them when they are younger.Also the drawings aren't fantastic.

    it is a good book but it is not the best in the world
  • (4/5)
    Each Ramona book seems to be a little better than the previous one. Like others in the series, "Ramona Quimby, Age 8" is episodic, and therefore doesn't have any overall focus for the plot. Ramona is going to school alone for third grade, because Beezus is in Junior High now. Through the course of the book, she has difficulties with a boy in her class, her teacher, her sister, her parents, and of course, Willa Jean and her babysitting grandmother. Cleary's genius is making the reader, regardless of their age, understand the feelings of an eight-year-old. None of the problems Ramona faces are major events... but they are to her, and we understand that.Funny, sweet, and perhaps a bit nostalgic if you can remember what it was like to be eight yourself.

    I remember buying this book from a Scholastic book fair at my school when I was in the third grade. This book is about Cleary's character of Ramona Quimby and her adventure through third grade. Her father goes back to school and has to stay with a neighbor after school while her mother is at work, she worries her teacher doesn't like her. There's a part where she tries to crack what she thinks is a hard-boiled on her head only to find it wasn't and literally ends up with egg on her face. I remember there's another part where she and her older sister Beezus have to make dinner for their parents so they just end up mixing things together in the kitchen like chicken and rice and yogurt and it's actually a hit. Ramona also has the stomach bug and throws up in front of her entire class. This was the part of the story that stayed with me the most because I too had a terrible stomach bug in the third grade just like Ramona and had to stay home from school. From then on this was the book to read when I was feeling sick. Ramona is not a perfect character, she doesn't behave like she's supposed to and marches to the beat of her drum. She's like any other kid and I think that makes her relatable.

    M and I both read this for our 2-person mother/daughter book club. :-) I was a big fan of the Ramona series when I was a kid.

    Mr. Quimby has gone back to school to become a teacher, Beezus is starting junior high, and Ramona's going to a new primary school. All the while, Mrs. Quimby must go to work every day to keep the family afloat. With everyone facing collective changes, Ramona wants to be the kind of girl her family can depend on in Ramona Quimby, Age 8 by author Beverly Cleary.Not to say I didn't enjoy this book as a child (I got such a kick out of all the Ramona books), but I'm quite certain I enjoyed this one more, this time around.I can't get over how well the little-things-that-are-big-things are captured in Ramona's stories. Here, we have the joy of getting a brand new, smooth, pearly pink eraser to start off the school year. The anger when some wise guy classmate steals that eraser! The humiliation of getting sick in school. The warmth and coziness of a family car ride home on a rainy evening. The thrill and luxury of going out for dinner at Whopperburger!And the absolute best part of class at school: silent reading! How handy to then be able to pull out something as mature and important as "Sustained Silent Reading" after school, to avoid playing with that annoying little Willa Jean for too long. Even if... "One of these days Willa Jean was sure to catch on that [Ramona] was just reading a book, and Ramona wanted to postpone that time as long as possible."I laughed out loud several times, I was touched along the way, and I'm as hyped as ever to be revisiting this series.

    This book is about the daily up's and down's of a young child's life. The story focuses on Ramona's journey where she is eventually lead that no matter how hectic growing up is, your family is always there. This is a great family book that focuses on the importance of family while also encouraging young people to read through Ramona's love of reading.

    This was my first Ramona book. I loved it. It is a timeless story. I identified with it on so many levels. It brought back memories and feelings from my chilhood but I also identified with it as a mother and as a teacher.I thought Ms. Cleary did such a wonderful job giving Ramona a voice that was so realistic. Like one of my other favorite literary characters, Clementine, Ramona will make you smile, but she can also bring a tear to your eye.

    This book is about Ramona and she thinks that being 8 is really a hard life. This is a great chapter book and is also a Newbery Honor book. That means it is a really good book if it receives that honor.

    Q5P5Ramona books are classics. The key to Ramona and her family's lasting power is that they are constantly in situations that transcend time- uncomfortable, awkward school days, families having hard financial times, moody sisters, kids who have to stay with other families after school. Cleary writes children so incredibly, I can remember the exact feelings she describes Ramona having as an 8 year old.

    These books are such fun read alouds for 2nd and 3rd graders. The kids can relate to the realistic characters and the plots that are developed in the books.

    A quirky little girl who wants to be grown up gives those kids someone to relate too. She helps her sister and tries to keep herself out of trouble, her curiosity sometimes hindering that! Great read!

    This was a fun book to revisit. Ramona Quimby is a young girl who gets into all sorts of antics and troubles with her friends and by herself. It is a very early chapter book, and I remember reading these books every night with my father when I was younger. Great memories, great book; a classic.

    Kearsten says: Ramona has a troubling year in the third grade: her dad is in school, forcing the family to rely completely on her mother's small salary, Ramona gets off on the wrong foot with her teacher and one of her classmates, and she gets sick at the WORST time.Funny, charming and just a teeny bit sad, I enjoyed rereading one of my childhood favorites with my 7 yr-old-daughter. I look forward to rereading the rest of Ramona's stories!

    Ramona is as quirky and lovable as ever in this book as she takes on the responsibility of turning eight and starting third grade. It is a humorous look at how the Quimbys pull through hard times and how Ramona gets a better sense of self through several mishaps at school. Stockard Channing is lovely to listen to and does an excellent job performing all the characters.

    No RC. 5Q 5P. An adorable slice of life story about the trials and tribulations of being a precocious 8-year-old girl. With the exception of a few words and phrases that are out of mode, the story and writing never feel dated and kids will probably still find that they are able to relate to the events and characters. Gr. 2 and up.

    This is a story about 8 year old Ramona Quimby. Her father is returning to school to become a teacher as Ramona goes into the third grade. She feels very grown up and short with the other little kids in the neighborhood. One day Ramona cracks what she thinks is a hard boiled egg over her head and is sent to the nurse. She overhears her teacher call her a nuisance and becomes sad. Feeling sorry for herself and not wanting to be a nuisance she quietly goes about life until she gets sick in class. Ramona Quimby is simply wonderful. This is a great first reader. It's really about misunderstanding and being loved, which is what all children need and crave. The illustrations add fun to this very realistic portrayal of an 8 year old girl. This would even be a great read aloud book for girls.

    Ramona is growing up, and part of growing up includes riding a bus to school and learning how to do her part to help the family...even if she doesn't like it. Third grade brings Ramona all sorts of new adventures, starting on the bus ride on the first day of a school when a Yard Ape type boy steals her new pink eraser! Things continue to happen to Ramona and it just doesn't seem fair. She has to play nicely with Willa Jean after school, a little girl who is always making mischief for which Ramona is blamed. Through it all Ramona approaches these situations with a perspective that is unique and decidedly classic Ramona. This delightful story takes the reader through the various trials and triumphs of an eight year old Ramona Quimby.

    I loved this book growing up so I had to read it again. It's about Ramona Quimby's year in the third grade and all of the trials and tribulations she endures through this year. She starts her new class and right away doesn't like her teacher very much. She has squeaky shoes and accidentally cracks an egg on her head, then she throws up in class. She hears her teacher say she's a show off and a nuiscance and agonizes about this throughout the book. On top of all of this, she has to play nice with annoying WIlla Jean every day after school. Beezus is in junior high so she can't help Ramona out at school. Her father is now a student and her family is struggling with money. FInally, she puts together a great book report and her teacher loves it. She confronts Mrs. Whaley about what she overheard and Mrs. Whaley explains how she didn't understand correctly. Her family decides to go out for dinner and a nice older gentleman pays for their meal because he thinks they are such a great family. Ramona ends the book feeling lucky with what she has. This is another great one by Beverly Cleary. It's a great easy read for kids that's fun and very entertaining at the same time. I loved all of the Ramona books growing up and will be sure to pass them on to kids in my classroom.

    I thought this book was pretty funny and really good. The thing I liked the most about this book was that I loved when they went out as a family without being crossed. I really enjoyed reading this book. I would also recommend this book to anyone even my little sister because this book is about how a family becomes closer to each other, how they get along, and I would think anyone would like a book about that.

    Hilarious. Poor Ramona's year in third grade looks like it'll be ruined before it gets a chance to start, when a new boy on the school bus makes off with her lovely eraser. Things get worse as her new teacher thinks she's a nuisance, and her family feels the pressure of her dad going back to school.There is school and family drama galore, and an excellent book report, oh and a wonderful scene where Ramona and Beezus make dinner.I'd recommend this to someone in grade three, having to do a book report, or fighting with their sister.

    Ramona you'll need a 15 minute class that teaches you the world.
