Ramona's World - Beverly Cleary, Tracy Dockray

I decided to give this book a reread. I loved it growing up and found that even reading it as an adult, I loved it just as much.

Before this, I read Ramona the Pest, in which Ramona is in kindergarten, so it was interesting to see how much Ramona has grown up between book 2 and book 8. This one focuses much more on Ramona being responsible.

I really enjoyed this book. There are a lot of silly situations and funny anecdotes. I also liked Ramona and Daisy's friendship in the story. It was a great example of female friendship without all of the feuding that often occurs in book about girls. Even Susan and Ramona's relationship developed, which was nice to see.

I can't wait to go back and read some of the other Ramona books, although it is bittersweet for me to watch Ramona grown up.
