Beverly Cleary has died

Beverly Cleary, beloved children’s author has died at age 104. She was born in 1916, and has written over thirty children’s books. I remember reading her books with my grandma, sitting in a cardboard clubhouse we had made. She has written books such as the Ramona Quimby series, Dear Mr. Henshaw, and Socks. @Bookworms, have you ever read her books?

I know! I had no idea she was that old! I thought she was my grandma’s age! My grandma is 72.

I loved the Ramona books! I used to own a copy of Ramona Quimby, age 8. I also liked the book about a girl who took ballet classes… Ellen something?
