Roundtable Reading: Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary
Recommended for ages 8 and up with accompanying adult(s)
Reading led by
Linda Artel, former BAMPFA children’s film festival programmer
Nine-year-old Beezus Quimby has her hands full with her little sister, Ramona. Whether she’s taking one bite out of each apple in the box or secretly inviting fifteen other four-year-olds to the house for a party, Ramona is always making trouble and getting all the attention. Old enough to be expected to take responsibility for her little sister, yet young enough to be mortified by every embarrassing situation she gets them into, Beezus is constantly struggling with her mixed-up feelings about the exasperating Ramona!
