Beezus and Ramona

Beezus and Ramona – Beverly Cleary

Beezus and Ramona – Beverly Cleary

Ramona! Ramona..!!

Ramona Geraldine Quimby is a character that everyone, elder or younger, knows. Today I am reviewing the first book in the Ramona series, “Beezus and Ramona”.
Ramona, still a four-year-old girl, is the youngest child in the Quimby family. Her sister is the beautiful Beezus. So the age difference between the two is about 5 years and Beezus is obedient and constantly thinking her pride about her self-esteem.
But Ramona !.
The other side of it. Very tricky, a bag of worries that she always thinks she can do anything that she wants at any time.

The story begins with Ramona’s Library Book Revolution. There, like her sister, she wants to get a book from the library, and in the middle of a lot of scenes, she manages to get a book to her sister’s membership card. But she thinks she is the owner of the book. Beezus is getting in a lot of trouble because of Ramona’s next steps to secure the book’s right, and her mother’s wallet also suffered a loss. So it’s so interesting how the author unfolds Ramona’s endless adventures one by one throughout the whole story. Although a children’s book, it is safe to say that the author was able to evoke a sense of humor through Ramona Quimby’s endless troubles

She was able to manage the writing tactics. There she used mostly simple writing pattern and used lighter words than heavy ones in word usage. She has highlighted the thoughts that in the children’s, while reminding the readers’ childhood. It is also remarkable that she has made it clear that sisters’ love is strong, no matter how much she creates troubles and gets angry. Written in 1955, this book is still an interesting children’s book that is still loved by readers today.

Welcome back to Gaya’s BookShelf! πŸ“šβ€οΈοΈ

Hello book lovers, 😍

How are you?
It’s been a long time and I came to see you today. The last few months have been very busy due to the fact that my postgraduate degree studies and exams, software engineering job as well as a lot of things like my wedding ceremony. So, for me, the Gaya bookshelf had been some what missed. But reading books is not.
I think it’s time for me to talk about books with you again on the Gaya’s Bookshelf. 😊

So with this short note I hope to say that I will be coming back again one day soon through a new book review.

Stay safe and keep reading books! β€οΈοΈπŸ“š

Pollyanna

Pollyanna – Eleanor H. Porter

How do you enjoy life in a complex world? Are you happy at all times?
No!
That is the answer of many. Life is about moving forward with a set of emotions such as happiness as well as sadness, pain, anger, loneliness. How many people look at every event that happens every day, every moment of their life and look for a reason to be happy with it? They spend their time mourning for what they could not get more than what they received. But if we look at every event in life, every moment with optimism, there are many benefits to our lives.

If only we could be like Pollyanna!
All this sighing, suffers, and confusion was then largely gone. Pollyanna, who lost her mother and father at a young age, gets a roof over her head because of her aunt, Miss Polly. Although Pollyanna suffered the worst losses of her life, she was used to looking at each and every incident with optimism. It was good for her life. She called it the “Glad Game” and played it with everyone she met. From the maid of her house to the people of the whole village, their lives, which had been miserable, were brightened by Pollyanna. Like Pollyanna, they were accustomed to looking at life with optimism. They learned to live happily because of Pollyanna. Eventually they were convinced of how unique Pollyanna’s was to the crowd that flocked to see her when she was involved in a car accident.

This incredible character, Pollyanna was created by Eleanor H. Porter in 1913 through her book, ” Pollyanna “. The habit of looking at life with optimism is wonderfully presented in the name of the “glad game” through her book. The book’s popularity can be gauged from the success of its attempt to set a vital example for the reader through a simple child’s character. The story unfolds in a free environment, including simple events and a simple lifestyle, and is one of the clever tricks used by the author to make the reader understand the intent of what is needed in a relaxed manner. In this sense, Pollyanna is a story that can be enjoyed not only by children but also by adults amidst many mature experiences in life.
