Romana and Beezus Trailer

Ok, am I the only one who remembers the Sarah Polley TV show of Ramona? I checked them out on VHS (so oldschool, I know) from my library and watched them as a kid. And I loved it. Sarah Polley was Ramona for me. So I'm still not sure I can bet behind this movie, but we'll see, maybe they'll surprise me. What do you think?


  1. I read the books long before the TV series came out. While Sarah Polley was good, I never really felt that she looked the way Ramona was supposed to look (it was probably due to the bad wig). The casting in this new version looks pretty good... at least for Ramona. Beezus looks Hispanic! Oh, well.

    It looks like they captured some of the funny scenes in the books, too (like when Ramona crashed through the ceiling). If this movie's been done right, it could be a huge hit.

  2. I dont remember the books very well but this looks AMAZING and wow the cast! Im sooooo excited!

  3. I haven't thought about those tv episodes in years!! Wow, way to bring back the memories. Nothing however will ever top the book.

  4. I think the casting for everyone looks great. What a fun trailer...gonna have to see this!

  5. I LOVED those books as a kid. I can't wait to share them with my own daughter. I think the movie looks pretty cute!

  6. sI also completely loved those Ramona videos...I checked them out from the library over and over!I will give this one a try though...maybe it will introduce a new generation of kids to Ramona!

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
