Ramona is happy to have a new bedroom all to herself - during the day, at least. It's not as easy to be brave when there might be ghostly, boneless gorillas oozing under the door at night. Then there is the big, mean dog that steals Ramona's shoe on her way to school. Any other first grader might be frightened. But it's going to take more than monsters and dogs to scare this fearless first grader!

understands age 6
My son says when the sisters agree and when the new room is built. I love the ending, but don't want to reveal too much.
My 6-year-old son has all the Ramona books and has had me play the Ramona the Brave audiobook many times for him. Ramona describes how hard it is to be age 6, mostly because other people don't understand her, and I think he relates to how she feels. I like that Beverly Cleary's characters and home situations reflect what family life is really like.
