And the Winner is....

Our little Ramona & Beezus giveaway winner is...


Which is wonderful because she is a literacy lover!

And now the Ramona and Beezus movie review:

Do you want to see something that will make you smile? Do you want to reacquaint yourself with childhood? Do you want to be inspired to follow your dreams? Do you want to see a family successfully pull it off together? Do you want to see a sliver of swiss cheesy romance sandwiched between meaty but good-intentioned mistakes of an over imaginative 9-year old and two slices of good humor? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, please go see the Ramona and Beezus movie.

Delightfully inclusive of vignette events from the Ramona series of books, Ramona and Beezus captures the essence of Beverly Cleary's novels. The casting is excellent, the setting and set are ideal--including the wallpaper in Ramona and Beezus's shared bedroom--and the storyline is fulfilling. Ramona's relationship with each primary character is given a chance to shine; for example her relationship with her Dad, Mom, Aunt B, school-teacher, play-mates, and of course her SISTER.

This movie is a feel good favorite that will go down as a classic in every home that cherishes the strength of family, the humor in life, the chance at a dream, and a little imagination. It's a reminder that in the ups and downs of life, the ins and outs of success and failure, a sister is an irreplacable support. So be good to your little sister who may be a huge pest and light fires and get things caught in her hair. And be kind to your older sister who is stuck with a nickname you gave her because you couldn't pronounce her whole name--it can't be worse than Beezus, and if her name is Beezus don't worry, someone like Jesus can and will still love her.

Watch the movie and let us know what you think! Go with your sister if you's sooooo fun.
