I have to say I was a little surprised it took them almost 20 years to come out with a movie based on these books. Of course, maybe it was just good marketing on their part. I grew up on Ramona’s tales, and now have kids of my own that I think will enjoy the movie and the books both.
Honestly I had almost forgot about these books until I saw the commercials for the movie. My daughter, age 7, of course wants to see the movie. I’ve given her my “Ramona the Brave” book that was given to me around her age, and she’s latched on to it. I love seeing her reading a good sized chapter book and something I know she’ll relate too for years to come. I always felt a certain connection to Ramona, probably like all little girls do at some point. Seeing the movie out now brings back childhood memories, and it makes me want to re-read all the books.
I did a quick search on Amazon and found an entire collection.
