The Story
Ramona and Her Father—Book Review

Ramona is in second grade when her father loses his job and things change in the Quimby household. Mrs. Quimby ups her hours at work from part-time to full-time and Mr. Quimby is the one at home after school with the girls. Ramona is up to her usual tricks, crowning herself with burrs, clomping through the neighborhood on tin-can stilts singing 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall, longing to be in a TV commercial, starring as a sheep in the Navitity play at church and waging an anti-smoking campaign against her father.
The Scoop
Ramona and Her Father—Book Review
{spoiler alert}

The beloved series about the Quimby family continues in Ramona and Her Father. This tight-knit and supportive family is refreshingly normal, with their share of ups and downs. Mr. Quimby’s smoking is a bone of contention with his daughters and they do everything they can to get him to quit, which he does eventually do. Those who have had family members get laid off or lose jobs will see themselves in this story, and will be able to relate to financial strain. An excellent message is made that no family is perfect all the time, and that being a happy family does not mean having to be perfect.
