Ramona Quimby, Age 8 | [Beverly Cleary]

Ramona Quimby, Age 8

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!

    "Great for the classroom!"
    What did you love best about Ramona Quimby, Age 8?

    I thought the narration was well done. The students enjoyed listening to the story.


    What other book might you compare Ramona Quimby, Age 8 to and why?

    Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing

    They are both silly, entertaining, and deal with the growing up and the relationships with siblings, friends, parents, etc.


    Which character – as performed by Stockard Channing – was your favorite?

    Ramona


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The hard boiled egg fad was a good teaching moment.

    "In a rush?"

    Stockard - calm down. The idea in narrating an audio book is not to read it as fast as possible. Very hard to follow along when someone is reading like they're in a rush to get somewhere.
