Happy Birthday Beverly Cleary!

Beverly Cleary turns 90 today! Ramona Quimby, Age 8 is the first chapter book I remember reading, at age 7. Cleary's books were the first ones I read under the covers with a flashlight. I have so many good memories with these books, and I'm eternally grateful to Cleary for introducing me to Ramona.

In honor of Beverly Cleary, April 12, 2006 is Drop Everything And Read day!
