Happy 100th Birthday Beverly Cleary!

Happy 100th Birthday Beverly Cleary!

 

Beverly Clearly Quote With Cake

Beverly Cleary has been a presence in children’s literature since her first book, Henry Huggins, was published in 1950, more than 65 years ago! Although her last book, Ramona’s World, was published in 1999, 17 years ago, long before any of her current readers like you were born, she has continued to inspire generations of us to fall in love with Ramona, Henry Huggins, and Ralph S. Mouse. Beverly is 100 years old today!

During her long career, she has been honored with a Newbery Medal (Dear Mr. Henshaw, 1984), 2 Newbery honors (Ramona and Her Father, 1978; Ramona Quimby, Age 8, 1982), the National Book Award (Ramona and Her Mother, 1981), among many accolades, and was recognized with the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal (1975) for “a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children.”

Her birthday, today, April 12, is recognized as National Drop Everything and Read Day (D.E.A.R). So give Beverly the gift she wants for her birthday, a gift that is for you too! Drop everything and READ!
