How Many Books Did Beverly Cleary Wrote

Who is your favorite author and why.

My favorite autor is Nicholas Sparks. Everything he writes is written in such detail I feel like I am actually there and know the characters. I like that he writes mostly about love even though it doesnt always have the ending I wanted.

There are quite a few authors that I like. The following ones are the ones that I love. There are way more books that I have read, but these are the ones that I will describe about.CHILDREN’S LITERATUREJUDY BLUME — I enjoy her books because they all have depicted various concepts with growing up such as during the world wars, and then also conteversial subjects about bullying, teasing etc. Most of her books she was written to describe what it was like for her to grow up, and then how it was for her children during the time that they were growing up.JEAN LITTLE — Again, as mentioned with Judy Blume, she really moves the reader in learning topics about growing up, and how it was like to live during various times of their lives.KIT PEARSON — Again her books are also made to depict the times during growing up, and the conteversial subjects like War, and stuff like that.LAURA INGALLS WILDER– This one I loved, because it showed the time of her growing up, and described what hardships, and what adversities that they had to go through in order to just survive.All of the above authors have clearly outlined different subjects that are normally very hard for younger children to understand what is happening, but they all put them into a language that is easily understood, but the children realize that these events have occurred, and then they sometimes are able to ask their parents to describe about the situations and what else occurred during these events.EASIER READSBEVERLY CLEARY — I loved her Ramona series. It was about a typical family when growing up. She also wrote some other books that moved me as well.ROALD DAHL– He wrote some hilarously funny book. I really thoroughly enjoyed the series. I especially like the matilda book. This was very funny.ADULTS LITERATURENICHOLAS SPARKS: You are right, this author is really good at providing imagery in his book, and it is really hard to even put down the book, because he provides so much thorough imagery, and his writing is so good that is makes you want to continue reading until the very end.ROBIN COOK, PETER CLEMENT, LEONARD GOLDBERG: All of these authors are excellent medical mystery writers. They are also all doctors that have currently been practicing medicine, and have used some of the events that they have dealt with for instance like the gene control therapy, stem research and other events like this.KATHRYN SHAY and KAREN KINGSBURY: Both of these authors portray wonderful romance novels in with some more serious concepts. They do a good job at portraying this, and that is why I enjoy these two ladies.Sorry I couldn’t just list one author. I have been reading for a very long time, and there was so many good authors, that I could not just list one of them. Trust me, I could have gone on for a long time listing authors that I have read, but the above are my most favorite ones.

Kids’/YA lit: Did you stop reading it at a given age. What books did you keep.

(Note: Question is primarily directed towards folks who are “too old” to read kids’/YA lit, but feel free to answer if you don’t fit that description, too!)Inspired by a “Recommend my summer reading!” question that was clearly kids’ lit published after I had grown out of the…

I’m 33 years old and I just bought a kid’s book yesterday (“The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey”). The last book I read was a kid’s book. (Okay, so the book I’m reading now is an adult book.) I have to confess, most of the books on my book shelf are ONLY children’s books. I think it has to do with the fact that I work in children’s publishing, and I’m around them all the time.There ARE books from my past, however, that I am sentimental about. I recently found my Ellen Confords and Beverly Clearys (yay, Ramona Quimby!) and was smiling because I remembered how much I loved them when I was a kid.I am nostalgic about the simplicity of books from my youth, but there’s something complex about children’s books nowadays that differs from when I was a kid. Of course, you have the cookie-cutter books that I wouldn’t give the time of day, but there are books out there that provide a more developed story and address grittier issues; books I think are well contrived and worth my time. Books by Angie Sage, Cornelia Funke, Shannon Hale, Libba Bray, Neil Gaiman, Kathleen Duey, Frances Hardinge, Trenton Lee Stewart, Julie Hearn . . . There are so many authors out there who write really good books for kids.I also think that Harry Potter had really opened the door for (1) Kids and getting them to read and (2) Making it “okay” for an adult to read a “kid’s” book. I still see adults toting around copies of HP on the subway!

What was your favorite book as a kid.

I want to start collecting books for my little sisters. They can’t read yet but better start buying them books now, lol. Here’s what I have so far:Fairy Realm (10 books in total)The Chronicles of NarniaA Dog’s Life: The Autobiography of a StrayMatildaCoralineJames and the Giant PeachGeorge’s…

My absolute favorite books when I was younger was this series called Replica. Ive never met anyone else who’s even heard of it, but I ADORED these books. The weird thing is that they’re sort of sci-fi, which has never been my thing.There are 20-something books in the series, plus three prologue books (I have all of them, lol) and they’re about a 12-year-old girl who finds out that she was conceived in a laboratory by a secret organization bent on creating a master race with only perfect people, and that she’s a clone and has 12 other identical clones all around the world. So basically she and the clones are perfect people. They can do everything a million times better than the average person, but she doesn’t have any “superpowers” so to speak of. The organization finds out the clones are still alive, and I’m not gonna give too much away haha but they’re so good.The writing is a bit easy in a lot of parts if you try to read it over the age of, say, 13 and there are some unrealistic parts (other than the whole clone thing) like her mom lets her go all around the city by herself and she dates someone who’s at least two years older than her when she’s 12.Oh, and I was also obsessed (and I do mean OBSESSED) with every single Mary-Kate & Ashley series out there… Two Of A Kind, Two Of A Kind Diaries, So Little Time, Dear Michelle, etc…. I had them all.I also liked How My Private Personal Journal Became a Bestseller (the disney movie Read It And Weep is based on it), The Clique series, The Mixed Up Files, Matilda, the Fudge series, The Secret Language of Girls, the Dear Dumb Diary series, The Ramona books (and others by Beverly Cleary), Ida B., and pretty much anything written by Judy Blume or Jaqueline Wilson (but Wilson’s books might be an acquired taste).AND there was this one series I loved that I don’t remember what it was called but it was about this group of friends and all the girls were sisters and the boys were brothers and they pulled pranks on each other… Gosh I can’t remember, but you brought back so many memories by asking this question! So I looked it up and the series doesn’t have a name but the first book is called The Boys Start The War and it’s by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor.OH and the Alice books by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, I grew up on those. Okay I’m done now, haha.EDIT: Okay, I lied, I’m back… Because I somehow forgot to mention my favorite non-series book, What I Call Life by Jill Wolfston. Done for real now, though!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marilyn_Kay…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Read_It_and…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Clique_…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tales_of_a_Fourth_Grade_Nothinghttp://www.amazon.com/Secret-Language-Frances-ORoark-Dowell/dp/0689844212

Do you have any children’s book recommendations.

I didn’t appreciate the satire aspect of the book, but still I loved it. Just something for you to consider…There are so many more that could be mentioned, but I hope I helped a bit.

Why do people hate to read so much.

My whole life has had books in it. My mother read to me when I was in the womb, she and my father read to me as a child, I grew up watching my mother read a lot, my father reads nonfiction, and when I was of age, I read everything I could. When other kids read Berenstain Bears, I read Beverly Cleary and Judy Blume…

I totally know how you feel. I don’t want to sound mean or stereotypical but most teenagers very lazy and their parents weren’t as ambitious about reading as you. I love reading a lot too, though when I was a child I only read picture books ahaha… As I got older I developed an interest in reading. Now I’m obsessed with books. I like reading fiction mostly because I like thinking about what could’ve happened or the unreal.People nowdays are so lazy. I’m not even kidding. I think primary/elementary schools (or what you call it where your from) should encourage kids to read more. Your friend should reslly teach her brother to read and telling a kid reading is bad is a shameful thing to do in my eyes.,I hope you become an awesome author one day and share your beautiful talents with people who will appreciate reading.Have a nice day and read on! :DEDIT:I do agree with josh, it does require patience too.

How can I make reading more enjoyable.

When I was a young kid, I used to love to read, especially the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary but as I got older, now it seems to be a “chore”, I really want to enjoy reading again and reading helps one to write well.

Rachel, Domino, and Rose are all right. You shouldn’t force reading. Try and find something you like, but if you don’t like it, don’t waste time making yourself like it. Try a lot of things, to see what your taste is. And, if when you were younger, you liked kids books, there is absolutely nothing wrong with reading kids books, even as an adult. I know plenty of adults who do.Also, if you’re having trouble getting into READING a book, try listening to it. It’s easier, in many ways, than reading. You can do other things while you listen, and people often take in more, more easily, when listening rather than reading. You may find it works for you. And if you start listening to a lot of books, it’ll get to be more fun to read them in print, too.

  1. For your brother, maybe Kevin Henkes “Wemberly Worried.” His favorite book is by Jan Brett, and she has several others, all with her distinctive illustration style. He might also enjoy Patricia Palocco. There are beautiful versions of all the classic fairy tales that would be great for him.Find a book that you have a hard time putting down because it is interesting.Read about things that interest you, not about things that interest other people.all of Patricia Polacco’s books are wonderfulJigsaw Jones Detective seriesI’ll be honest…I couldn’t get through your rant…and I like to read, but you have to remember that a lot of people have a hard time reading. They “hate” reading because it’s harder for them than others. Somewhere in their brain, unlike your brain, the connections don’t move as smoothly as yours or mine. So it takes more work to read and understand and enjoy reading.At age 7 your brother will likely read/enjoy books from the First Reader section and from the Picture Book area. His favorite, The Mitten, is from the folklore/fairy tale area and I’d start with other books by that awesome author Jan Brett. She has other books in the folklore/fairy section plus lots of others in the Picture book area. A few specific titles: Tops and Bottoms by Janet Stevens, Two of Everything by Lily Hong and No Dinner by Jessica Souhami. He might also try some First reader authors like Peggy Parrish and Cinthia Rylant. Another great fairytale author is Joseph Bruchac–try Racoon’s Last Race by him.Mr. Putter and Tabby his cat series by Cynthia RylantETA 2:

  2. MomoShiloh – Phyllis Reynolds Naylor[DELDUP()]The Jungle Book – Rudyard KiplingNon fiction, Richard Dawkins – I’ve learned so much about biology after discovering his work!

  3. Bink & Gollie (by Kate DiCamillo, the same author as the Tale of Despereaux — she writes lots of great books)Nancy P. Brummet i believe

  4. It depends…Books I saved from my childhood because I liked them so much…Then there was period between ten and fourteen where I don’t remember reading anything outside of school. I was preoccupied with other activities like sports, friends, etc. This may have been when I gave up on kids’/YA lit and began to make the transition to ‘adult’ lit which I started reading in high school.Chronicles of Narnia by C S LewisKit’s Widerness – David Almond

  5. Personally, I enjoy reading. I am a writer so reading tends to come with the territory. Several friends of mine are not big readers the same way I am not into watching much TV. It comes down to preference. Now, if I can encourage someone to try a book or even a short article in a magazine, I will. But it’s not my place to look down at those who aren’t avid readers.The Railway Children by E. NesbitOr Go Girl books, about girls and their problems. Your younger sisters would probably like them.

  6. But, I can make some recommendations. For your sister, try Louis Sachar’s “Sideways Stories from Wayside School” books. They’re very funny. She could probably also manage the Series of Unfortunate Events books by Lemony Snicket. Beverly Cleary would be another good author for her. Jon Sciezska writes great spoofs of classic fairy tales, like “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs” and “The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales.” They’re really funny.For the 9 year old

  7. I completely understand where you are coming from, I am 16 and I love to read. Heck today I paid 10 dollars to get into my towns annual yearly book sale early. I buy so many books, its crazy. The reason why so many teenagers don’t like reading because schools these day’s are focusing on technology more then good traditional books. Now I must say avid book readers don’t always have to be really smart…I read many books a week and I don’t do very good in school and I come from one of the top schools in the USA…I just think if schools, especially English classes focused on more books then trying to get the latest gadget, people would like reading more. I grew up with reading and at age 2 I was reading to people, I think it also depends if your parents are avid readers. My mom is a huge reader and I spent a lot of time with her, so I grew up with books but my dad hates books and my brother spent a lot of time with him and he now hates reading. I mean he judges a book by its cover (its so annoying). So the answer is, how people grow up and laziness is caused why people don’t like books. Now I have a question, do you recommend any good books. 🙂

You can ask friends to recommend books that they’ve liked, or maybe a librarian can help you out.

  16. Many view it as ‘uncool’ and so as many are just trying to ‘fit in’ they don’t read for fear of being labeled a nerd. I read myself and I find it helps me cope with things better, travel across universes that others have created with their own imagination and expands my volcaublary. I do not care for what others label me, I don’t care that I am not wearing short pants and wearing pounds of makeup on my face and that society deems me an outcast. I would rather read then miss out on the adventures books hold.

  17. Owls in the Family by Farley MowatBut I do still have my Anne of Green Gables and Berenstain Bears books. I read those occasionally.

  18. Mysteries by Peggy Parish (Clues in the Woods, Key to the Treasure, Mystery of Hermit Dan, Pirate Island Adventure, etc.)For your brother:

  19. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” was my favorite in first grade… and I still love it.For fiction, Dean KoontzI remember that Bridge to Terabithia was the first book to make me cry.

  20. I think it’s a matter of preference. I don’t hate reading but generally I am not a reader. It bores me to sleep. I prefer sketching over it. So it is not correct that majority of non-readers hate reading.Mitch Albom I think is at the top of my favorites list. I just love his books, his writing, and the messages within his books. Simply wonderful.

  24. Some people enjoy reading, others don’t. I think it’s kind of sad but it’s not my place to judge. We all have our preferences so I don’t really the point in asking why some enjoy reading while others don’t.In the meantime, try some of these. Just go to the library and maybe read the back cover or the first few pages to see what you think:

  25. Great books for 4 to 10 year olds: The enchanted wood, the Magic faraway tree, the folk of the faraway tree. Adventures of the wishing chair, the wishing chair again, More wishing chair stories. All by Enid BlytonOther books I loved were:Amy

  26. I have found a new author that I enjoy, Randy Singer. He writes mostly about criminal law, but as a retired police officer I find it very interesting and true life.

  27. Children Learning Reading is really comprehensive, and your child can have number issues assimilating the instructions while the instructions are well-designed. Since the device is based on phonetics, the educational process is gradual.

  28. Speak – Laurie AndersonAlso, the “Ramona Quimby” series were favorites in third grade. They were written by Beverly Cleary, and they are wonderful.

  29. First off don’t force it. You’ll grow to despise it even more if ya do. Honestly Rachel is right. Pick something you like. There are a ton of genres. Do you like horror movies? Mystery movies? Historical? Etc. I ask cause many movies out these days are based off books. Did you like educational books as a kid and for that matter what age are you now? I personally loved the Wishbone books as a kid or Black Stallion Series. Now I like historical romance or fiction. Hope you get the desire to read back again, its really just up to you and your likes though for the most part.

  31. I’m not old (high school), but still have my Junie B. Jones books from second grade, and I still have my Goosebumps that I go through once in a while. It’s just entertaining to read, like watching an old cartoon that I haven’t watched in a while.

  32. Charles Dickens has to head the list of my favorite authors. So many wonderful characters and stories, such a realm of drama, comedy and incident, so many memorable moments, nearly as real to me as my own modern world.Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes – Chris Crutcher

  33. Little House on the Prairie, in the Big Woods,etc by L. I. WilderAlso, for kids around 10 to 12 or older, get Percy Jackson, great books series, and you learn a lot about Greek, Roman and Egyptian mythology but with a humorous and modern twist on it.If she likes horse OR adventure books, try “San Domingo” by Marguerite Henry.

  34. Black Beauty – Anna SewellFind a good book, that you really love, and you can relate to. They you will just go from there.

  35. The Book Thief – Marcus ZusakTreasure Seekers: Follow the Ghosts is one of the funniest games in the logical challenges and objects collection genre. Discover some of its features and get hooked to its interesting story.

  36. Since you are going to the library, ask the children’s librarian there for some recommendations. You’ll get just the right books.That’s about it…

  37. The story of the mole who knew it was none of his business. It’s a book about a mole who gets pooped on and he goes on an adventure to find out whose business it really is, because it isn’t his. It’s a hilarious book and you learn all the different types of animal poop.Wow. Honey you need to calm the eff down. You are merely proving my points when you go off on a tangent like this. It’s not that big of a deal. LET. IT. GO.

  38. I loved these books called “Molly Moon” they were the best!

  40. Danger on Panther Peak (also exciting)For the 3rd grader maybe try the Judy Moody series–fun school related stories but not as juvenile as Junie B. They are by Megan MacDonald. Or try David Adler’s Cam Jansen series–easy mysteries.

  41. Not all people hate to read. There are just some people who do and some who don’t. It’s basically just like any activity that can be done. Some people like to write, some don’t; some people like to play sports, some don’t; some people like school, some don’t; etc., etc. That’s just how life is. Parent’s behavior does have a lot to do with it. My mom is a bookworm, therefore, I am too 🙂 You just need to be you and not worry about if people think reading is stupid, because I’m sure they’re are things you don’t like that they do. Good luck and hope this helps!!!

  42. I like her because the plot lines of her stories are great and the way that she writes them, it makes you get so absorbed into the story.

  43. I can break down my reading development into three or four different stages. Each of these “stages” is separated by a transition period which I don’t seem to remember all that well.Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little, Trumpet of the Swan

  44. lol – The thing is, I taught a lot of that literature – ‘A Wizard Of Earthsea’, ‘Dicey’s Song’, ‘Bridge to Terabithia’, ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’, ‘Where The Lilies Bloom’, ‘Jacob Have I Loved’, ‘The Eagle Of The Ninth’ and many more. I kept copies of my favourites (stolen from sons’ bookshelves after they left home). I will still take one down for a reread when I want something familiar, or more rarely, when I’m feeling nostalgic for the classroom. : )

  45. Hell, I am considered smart (I have a 3.25 GPA in college right now for goodness sake) but even at 32 I am still not successful. S**t happens. Life happens. I read a lot but it’s no guarantee I will be successful. It just means I read a lot.The first four Judy Moody books.

  46. I am over 30 and will never stop reading books geared toward readers under 18…now I spend my time writing my own.

  47. I would suggest the following:I can’t imagine being in a world without “A Christmas Carol”, or “David Copperfield”, or “Bleak House”, Pip and Estella and Joe and Miss Havisham, or Oliver and Fagin and Nancy and Bill Sykes, or Mr Pickwick and Sam Weller…

  48. I love the book The Hard Times Jar by Ethel Footman Smothers for your sister. It’s a cultural book and very cute. If you are down with reading with them you can look into Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Lois Lenski’s Indian Captive, Judith Viorst’s Super-Completely and Totally the Messiest, and my personal favorite, Marcus Pfister’s The Rainbow Fish.

  49. Henry and Mudge the dog series by Cynthia RylantIt just requires focus. Many people are unaware what books can provide should they put in the focus. In fact, it just gets easier to focus as you continue to read. Its a skill people need to develop like any other.

  50. In Children Learning Reading program the instructions are unique and can not be present in other learning methods.

  51. Harry Potter since I was 5 until I was 9.The Bears on Hemlock Mt.I have a website about children’s books and the link is below.

  52. Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are”Olives Ocean – Kevin HenkesWow, nobody’s said Stephenie Meyer…but I’m not going to either…love her books…but she’s not my favorite…Did I stop reading them? Yes and no. When my mother hands me one of my childhood books, I will read a few pages to bring back the childhood memories then toss it back in the box. I haven’t read a children’s book cover-to-cover since I was a child.For your sister, check out ANYTHING written by Bill Wallace. Some of my favorites are:I have so many it’s hard to pick. However, Jodi Picoult does stand out in my mind. She writes amazing books with incredible characters about real-world issues. Some of the topics: (1) What happens when a 13 year old girl is raped by her (ex)boyfriend. (2) The aftermath of and lead-up to a high school shooting: who is the shooter, what kind of family he comes from, what the family is going through. (3) A death row inmate wants to donate his heart to the sister/child of his victims. (4) A girl is born to be the organ donor/body farm for her older sister; does she have a right to refuse to risk her life for her sister’s, even though that’s what she was “made” for? If you’ve never read Jodi Picoult, do yourself a favor, grab a book and dive into it. She will make you think. You might change your opinions on some things or it may just confirm those opinions and make them stronger.
