Any and all Ramona Quimby books would be, in my opinion, a huge benefit for teachers to share with their class. After having the Ramona books read to me growing up, I think these books would be most suitable for a second grade classroom. Beverly Cleary does a wonderful job of introducing readers to a very real and very funny young girl named Ramona Quimby. We as readers learn about her life as she goes to school, becomes a big sister, and figures out how to handle everything that life throws her way with her own Ramona flair, of course. This would be a great book for whole group and the teacher could very easily ask students to answer comprehension questions aloud or in their journals once the section of the day has been read. Children will love the funny things Ramona says and does and her "realness" will make her easily relatable to all students!
