~ full of wishful thinking and a love of all things childish ~
I love Beverly Cleary. It has been a while since I have read the ones you mentioned. Just read a few of the Ramona books to my boys. :)
Desiree is such a fan of cats (ie: Socks) and dogs (ie: Ribsy). I want to read the Ramona books to the kids too! Let me know if you have any you recommend specifically (Ramona or otherwise)!
Portions of Beverly Cleary books were in my 8th grade reader (1960s). The book title I remember was Henry Huggins.What delightful books!
Carla, Beverly Cleary books are classics! Your grandchildren would probably love them...
