Happy Birthday, Beverly Cleary!

Today is Beverly Cleary‘s birthday. She is one of my favorite authors, and an author who has brought great joy into the reading lives of so many people, young and old. Her understanding of children is wonderful, and her books are great fun to read at any age. I haven’t read all her books yet, but I particularly loved her very enjoyable memoirs: A Girl From Yamhill, and My Own Two Feet. Today she is 101 years young! Happy birthday, dear author friend!

Some wise words from Beverly Cleary:

In 50 years, the world has changed, especially for kids, but kids’ needs haven’t changed. They still need to feel safe, be close to their families, like their teachers, and have friends to play with.
