Beanie on books

Beanie, who is in the first grade, just became introduced the world of Beverly Cleary and of book reviewing.

She had been having ups and downs with her little brother all last week, so I thought it might be fun for her to read Beezus and Ramona, which I remember as being spot-on about sometimes just not liking your younger sibling, then feeling like you were wrong to feel that way.

I heard her giggling aloud as she started the book. So, I asked her what she liked about it. Beanie decided to write a "paragraph" about it - paragraphs being a concept that she just learned (I forget how and why). The result is above.

I challenge Michiko Kakutani to review with such sincerity.

  1. Beanie told me that she was glad that Bubbie was nothing like Ramona, and tonight declared him "the best little brother in the world." Ahhh. I am preserving the moment on this blog so that tomorrow morning I know that it did happen...
