"Quite often somebody will say,'What year do your books take place?'and the only answer I can give is, in childhood."
-Beverly Cleary
While reading Dear Mr. Henshaw, I would have my students keep a diary just like Leigh learns to do in this novel.
Cleary's first book!
Published in 1950.



Cleary's books have been published in 20 different languages.
This couple has 2 children and Beverly Cleary still lives in California

Beverly Cleary
Clearys education
In 1934, she graduated with a BA in English from the University of California.

She then went on to continue her education at the University of Washington where she earned her degree in library science.

She enjoyed providing students with a variety of books that they could relate to.
"If you don't see the book you want on the shelves, write it."
-Beverly Cleary
The Ramona books are great to use in the classroom because for young students they are able to analyze the books because they are books that the students can easily relate to. I would have my students learn about the elements of fiction while reading some of the Ramona books.
In my classroom, I would have my students read Cleary's book, "Runaway Ralph", and have them compare and contrast the book to the movie.

Write character descriptions.

Predict the plot.
"Children should learn that reading is pleasure, not just something that teachers make you do in school."
-Beverly Cleary

Socks is a great book for young children to read because they are learning to adapt to new situations such as starting school or maybe even having new family members join their family.

For this story, I would have my students write a paragraph about a time that something new happened with their family and how they were able to deal with the situation.
