When she was 6, her family moved to Portland, Oregon, where she went to grammar and high school. She was slow in learning to read, due partly to her dissatisfaction with the books she was required to read and partly to an unpleasant first grade teacher. It wasn't until she was in third grade that she found enjoyment from books, when she started reading The Dutch Twins by Lucy Fitch Perkins.

However, Ramona and Her Father was written at a time where smoking was not yet seen either as all that generally negative or even as a probably lethal habit. Secondly, and for me even more importantly, smoking is actually NOT AT ALL glamourized by Beverly Cleary in Ramona and her Father.

I found my book, she said, and held it up for Beezus to see. On the cover was a picture of a steam shovel with its jaws full of rocks. The title was Big Steve the Steam Shovel.

  • The Rollers of Vildar
Is there *anyone* on the planet who doesn't like Beverly Cleary's books and the wonderful characters she created?

Beezus and Ramona (along with Henry Huggins and the rest of the gang on Klikitak Street) were part of my childhood. 40 years later, they were just as appealing to my own son. And don't tell anyone -- although we bought these audiobooks when he was about 8, at 12 he still likes to put these on ocassionally and listen. Why? In large part because of Stockard Channing's masterful performance here. Her rendition of Ramona is EXACTLY how we imagine this impish little creature would talk.

I highly recommend these books, both because of the delightful stories and characters that Mrs. Clearly created for us, and because Stockard Channing has brought them to life so perfectly here. The stories are reminiscent of simpler times and will take parents back to their own childhoods while providing toddlers to tweens with good, wholesome entertainment.

We listened on road trips, and unlike certain kids entertainment (a certain purple dinosaur comes to mind), you won't want the kids to wear headphones to preserve your sanity. You'll want it on the main speakers for everyone in the car to enjoy.

Five stars!

This is a 2-pack of selected Ramona stories on audio from Listening Library. The Ramona books were written by Beverly Cleary, who was also known for Henry Huggins, Ribsy, and Ralph S. Mouse. The 2-pack contains "Beezus and Ramona" from 1955, and "Ramona and Her Father" from 1977. Ramona Quimby lived in Portland, OR on Klickitat St. (a real street there) with her sister Beezus, and her parents Robert (Bob) and Dorothy (Dory).

The "Beezus and Ramona" book from 1955 is contained on the first two discs. "Beezus and Ramona" was the first book in the Ramona series, and followed the titular protagonist sisters when the former was 9 and the latter was 4. The 9-year-old was Beezus (whose real name was Beatrice, but she was called Beezus because her little sister could not say her name). Her 4-year-old sister Ramona was, at least to her, very exasperating. Ramona did such naughty deeds as coloring in a library book, ruining a checker game that Beezus and Henry were playing, shutting Henry's dog Ribsy in the bathroom, taking single bites out of not a few apples, and much more. Beezus could not stand how Ramona did all these things, but the climax of this book, in my opinion, was when Ramona ruined not one, but two, birthday cakes on the same day (one by dumping a lot of eggs into the mixer, the other by burying her doll in the batter). Beezus eventually learns from her aunt and mother that while she and Ramona are sisters (as are her aunt and mother), and they will always love each other(as will her aunt and mother), she doesn't have to like the things that Ramona does. The book reads somewhat like a 6-act play, with each chapter being one act in that play. Disc 1 contains the first half of the book (Chapters 1-3), and Disc 2 contains the second half of the book (Chapters 4-6).

The second part of this 2-pack (on Discs 3 and 4) is "Ramona and Her Father" from 1977. As the title implies, this is an examination of Ramona's relationship with her father. Ramona and her big sister Beezus are looking forward to supper at the Whopperburger, their favorite restaurant; suppers there, it is written, are "Ramona's favorite payday treat." Their father comes home, but unbeknownst to them, he is very downcast. He gives them gummy bears to share with each other while he goes to talk to their mother. The sisters are intrigued; what could their father be so unhappy about? This is why they struggle to listen through the walls, and then through the furnace pipes. They find out later that their father lost his job at the storage company where he worked; he was not fired, but rather, according to the text, he was "let out," which is apparently Cleary's way of saying "laid off" (it would be rendered as "downsized" in the 2010 film "Ramona and Beezus"). Other major stories in this book are Ramona's crown of burs, Ramona's drive to get her father to kick the smoking habit, and Ramona and her father drawing the "longest picture in the world." Disc 3 is the first disc of this book, and runs to around the middle of Chapter 4. Disc 4 (the second disc) spans the remainder of Chapter 4 and the rest of the book.

Each book is read by famed actress Stockard Channing, who, at least in my experience, has done an outstanding job with the books of Ramona. I don't know exactly how to describe her performance any further, other than to say, listen to the books! I think that you'll appreciate her performance.

As was said before, the books that make up this two-pack of Ramona stories are divided onto 4 discs. Each disc has its number all the way around the perimeter, with Cleary's name on top, and the book title (with text and audio copyrights) below. The discs are contained in a square digipak that fits into a slightly bigger (and glossy) square box. On the front is Cleary's name, and below that are the titles and cover images of the represented books (the cover images are those of original illustrator Alan Tiegreen). The cover images overlap slightly. The one for "Beezus and Ramona" is on the left, and is within a green square with blue titling on the top; the one for "Ramona and Her Father" is on the right, and is within a blue square with orange titling on the bottom. The front also indicates that these recordings are unabridged and read by Stockard Channing. The sides have the Listening Library logo on the top, plus smaller versions of the cover images with book titles in the same colors as they were on the front, and Cleary's name and "Unabridged" designation.

The back side has the cover price on the top left (both U.S. and Canadian), plus duration and number of discs (4 discs for 4 hrs., 30 min.). There are also short descriptions of the represented books, plus blurbs about the author (Cleary) and reader (Channing). There is also a plug for the Listening Library website (this is on the bottom in a red box with yellow text), plus plugs for the print versions available from HarperTrophy. The bottom of the package contains technical credits and text credits, plus Dolby Surround logo.

All in all, I enjoyed my time with this two-pack of "Beezus and Ramona" and "Ramona and Her Father," and I believe that it is a great value for the money. Usually $20 would get you the audio version of one book, but here you get a 2-for-1 deal for the same price, and thus this 2-pack of Ramona books on audio comes personally highly recommended.

Our 4-year old loved the first Ramona cd we got her for long car rides. Ramona was going into 4th grade and everything the previous reviews said was true: the kids and situations were cute, Stockard Channing was perfect, simpler times, etc. In this book, however, Ramona is 4 years old and simply an annoying brat without any redeeming cuteness. Very disappointing, but worse was the fact that after listening to part of this our 5-year old started acting out what she heard Ramona saying and doing. This was definitely not cute! Maybe when the book is being read by a parent to a child it is clear to the listener-child that this is not good behavior, or maybe the child needs to be older than 5.

I LOVED Beezus and Ramona books when I was growing up - and now I have the pleasure of introducing my daughter to them. We've read several of the books together, and I decided to get this audiobook set for her as a gift (she's 4-1/2, so she's not reading at this level yet). We listen to this in the car wherever we go - whether it's just to school (a short 5-minute drive from home), or going to visit my parents (a 5-hour drive). She is thoroughly entertained! (And Stockard Channing does a WONDERFUL job bringing the characters to life!)

I loved the Beverly Cleary books when I was growing up, but I discovered another great way to enjoy them when I came across this audiotape of her classic, Beezus and Ramona.

Stockard Channing is a fabulous reader who creates distinctive voices for all the characters, especially the little sister Ramona. I have three boys, but they could all relate to the trials and tribulations of having a little sister who consistently annoys, embarrasses and then appears to outwit you.

A great story to enjoy on road trips or even just on the way to the grocery store.

My six year old loves the Ramona Audio Books. She listens to them while she is playing or drawing in her room and she listens to them every night when she goes to sleep. She is really developing her listening skills and I think it is reinforcing her reading. Now, turning off the TV or computer is not such a bad thing because she has her audio books. Ramona is such a funny quirky girl, you can't help but be drawn into the stories. I even find myself hanging out in her room listening.
