The idea for this meme is to think back to memorable books from our childhood and to tell us why you loved them and you can even review them now.

Mal’s Throwback Thursday!
Nine-year-old Beezus Quimby has her hands full with her little sister, Ramona. Sure, other people have little sisters that bother them sometimes, but is there anyone in the world like Ramona? Whether she’s taking one bite out of every apple in a box or secretly inviting 15 other 4-year-olds to the house for a party, Ramona is always making trouble–and getting all the attention. Every big sister can relate to the trials and tribulations Beezus must endure. Old enough to be expected to take responsibility for her little sister, yet young enough to be mortified by every embarrassing plight the precocious preschooler gets them into, Beezus is constantly struggling with her mixed-up feelings about the exasperating Ramona.
I loved reading of the highs and lows of sibling life. Great way for kids to learn about relationships, family interaction. It is very honest and paints a realistic picture. Beezus is candid in sharing her negative feelings about Ramona. Scrapes and squabbles are even introduced. Love the way the ‘big’ sister role is explored as well as having a dialog with her mom on her concerns. Great book that brings back a load of memories.
