    1. داستان جالبی بود دخترکی که تلاش خودش رو برای کمک به خانوادش میکرد تو این مدتی که خانواده رامونا در غم و اندوه بودن این دختر سعی میکرد که با کار های بامزه اش باعث بشه که غم رو به فراموشی بسپارنددر کل این داستان دنیای شیرین کودکی رو خیلی زیبا به تصویر کشید

    2. Oh! I had hoped that this book would be as fun and lovely as I remembered. When I received it in my sweaty hands, I said, "Oh my. I remember this book as a lot thicker." But you know what? It was fun and lovely and nostalgic. I read it in one day, on two bus trips to work and back. Who can forget Nosmo King? And the crown of burrs? And Ramona wanting to be on television commercials so she can earn a million dollars and her father and family can be happy again? And the bittersweet Christmas endin [...]

    3. While I have generally very much enjoyed Ramona and her Father and think that Beverly Clearly has painted and portrayed not only an enjoyably humorous, but also very much realistic portrait of middle class American childhood (not dwelling on the negatives, but at the same time, also not shying away from potential problems and issues, such as the trials and tribulations faced by the Quimby family when the father loses his job), I do tend to feel that the ending of Ramona and Her Father is a bit r [...]

    4. Ramona is really the sweetest. I mean, don't get me wrong she's a pain, too! but she's also a sweetheart. :)

    5. Still holds up really well -- especially about the tightening of budgets and giving up of frills when a job loss happens. I love how squarely lower middle class the family is. Dad's new job is bagging groceries, while mom works at a doctor's office as a secretary. Going out for dinner is a huge deal to them. And the entire subplot with dad giving up smoking is a thing that I remember reading as a kid, and now, as an adult, can't really recall in books I've read for young readers in years. I thin [...]

    6. We started reading the series of books starring Ramona Quimby, Beezus, Henry and their friends a few years ago, but we never made too much progress. We intended to read more, but we always chose something else. Our youngest was given the book Ramona the Pest (Ramona Quimby to read by her second grade teacher to practice her reading comprehension and I thought we'd give the series another try. We recently listened to Ramona and Her MotherThis book brings a sense of nostalgia to me, a reminder of [...]

    7. "Having a sister who tried to act like the Virgin Mary was not easy for a girl who felt as Ramona did."Reread for VSC.03-15-2008"Ramona made up her mind, right then and there in the middle of arithmetic, that she was going to save her father's life." Ramona, c'est moi. I first read this in 1980, maybe 1981, and should have been awestruck that Cleary had put pen to paper and come up with me. How did she know my 7-year-old self so well? But no, I took Ramona for granted and just read this one over [...]

    9. Came across my 2003 school reading log, so figured I should enter these books in too. In the words of my ten-year-old self, this book was: "Really good, pretty easy"

    10. Nostalgia isn't what it used to be, sure, but re-reading Cleary (sadly, probably for the last time since the grandchildren will probably have amorphic and ghastly "sense-lit-creme" that they rub onto the plugnubs under their jaws, absorbing the classics without ever having to shift their obese, glassy stare from the orange bawling dia-tribals of Emperor Trump (Rectified)), sure makes one miss one's childhood.Ramona, who'd probably be diagnosed ADD and on a slew of medications by age seven, shoul [...]

    11. "You know something?" said Mr. Quimby. "I don't care how much that kid or any other kid earns. I wouldn't trade you for a million dollars."Mr. Quimby continued his careful snipping. "I'll bet that boy's father wishes he had a little girl who finger-painted and wiped her hands on the cat when she was little and who once cut her own hair so she would be bald like her uncle and who then grew up to be seven years old and crowned herself with burs. Not every father is lucky enough to have a daughter [...]

    12. I remember this book so well- partly because I went on a campaign to try to get my dad to stop smoking just as Ramona had after I read this book. My campaign was unfortunately, not as successful as Ramona's. Still, this remains one of my favorite books from childhood. I love the part in which Ramona tells her teacher that her pantyhose are wrinkled like an elephant's skin. So funny. Cleary has an uncanny ability to remember and describe children's feelings- without being condescending or phony. [...]

    13. **Hmmm, I meant to read these Ramona books in order but I've apparently skipped two of them. Disappointing.**I will never not love Ramona and the entire Quimby clan. Reading this as an adult made me appreciate it in a whole new way--mainly because we're dealing with: Ramona's unemployed father and how they all cope. That's pretty realistic and kind of heavy duty for a kids' book, you know? I will also forever be amazed by Beverly Cleary. If you asked me to write a kids' book, I would struggle to [...]

    14. I love this book so much. This is the book where Ramona really starts to get to know herself. I love the way her father's character is developed and the way Cleary relates the experience of being worried about money without beating the reader over the head with it. I still have the copy of this book that I read as a kid and it was so wonderful to get back to the RIGHT illustrations. Ramona reminds me more of myself at that age when she looks like her plain, mousey little self. I swear I had that [...]

    15. In the book Ramona and her Father Ramona's father loses his job Ramona thinks he's miserable. So she tries to do everything she can to cheer him and the rest of the family. Even if it means getting burs stuck in her hair to trying to get him to stop smoking. I rated this book a 4 star because it was a little easy for me. This book is humorous. I would definetly reccomend this book to reader who like the Ramona series and to readers who like realistic fiction.

    16. I'm reading this to the girls and we're having a good time. They are FREAKING out that the dad smokes. It was published in 75, and I'm trying to explain that things were a bit different back when I was a kid.

    17. My children continue to be thrilled with Ramona, even though she's having to deal with some heavier issues as her father goes through an extended bout of unemployment.

    18. Originally posted on You Have Your Hands FullMy girls and I actually listened to Ramona and Her Father last summer, but I never got around to writing the review. This is the fourth book in Beverly Cleary’s Ramona Quimby series. In this book, Ramona is still struggling to find her place in the world and in her family. Things are somewhat complicated because her father has recently lost his job. They are already on a budget, and now they must become even more frugal. This book is somewhat dated [...]

    19. Another cute installment in the series.ContentConsumerismDisneyland.ViolenceMentions of spanking; references to earthquakes and shootings in the news.Language“Pieface” several times; “shut up”; “brat” four times; “for Pete’s sake”.Other notesMr. Quimby smokes, but this is shown to be bad; the family celebrates Halloween; a mention of whiskey; a song about beer.

    20. I read this in a day. It was a pretty quick read and I recommend grades four and up. But, it was very good!!

    21. Still love this book and love it even more reading it to my youngest daughter. Clearly still captures the strong spirit of this spunky girl we all love.

    22. It was great to reread this gem. It was good to know as a kid that Ramona's life wasn't always perfect either. We had a lot in common, her sister was snotty to her, her family had financial troubles, her mom had to work all the time, her father had a tough time quitting smoking, and she wasn't the cute one. Thanks Beverly Cleary for creating such a great character for me and for so many others to relate to.

    23. there is darkness even within the lightest works, and light sparks here and there is the ultimate downer novels. WP says that Cleary was advised to write peppy and light and humorous, but scholarship on children's literature, as such exists, actually takes formal note of the 1977 "dark period" where light and peppy children's book writer Beverly Cleary first saw the intrusion of darker themes in what was up to then the all sunshine Ramona series. the incorrigible Ramona, of course, is the somewh [...]

    24. I liked this one a lot, even more so than the others. As in all the others, the author really seems to understand the thought-process of a little girl, of whatever age she's in for the book. I liked that this book dealt with some serious issues for her family, and that Ramona had such concern about her father's smoking, and that she made such a sincere effort to get him to stop. It reminded me that kids do think deeply, and adults do need take them seriously and learn from them sometimes. It's w [...]

    25. Ramona Quimby wishes her family would perk up. Her cat refuses to eat, her older sister is going through a moody and defiant phase, and her parents worry a lot these days, since her father just lost his job. But if Ramona sets her mind to it, maybe she can find a way to help her father through this rough patch in Ramona and Her Father by author Beverly Cleary.Just as I remembered from childhood, I found this to be one of the darker Ramona books (although back then, "sadder" is the word I likely [...]

    26. this is probably my favorite ramona book, due to the fact that i was kid of a daddy's girl when i was a little kid. i had much more in common with my dad than my mom (both of us were obsessed with reading, for example--we had matching t-shirts that said, "so many books, so little time," & my dad had such an enormous personal library that he borrowed against it as collaterel when he bought a house). in this book, mr. quimby loses his job. things are tight for the quimby family, trying to get [...]
