The internet is full of lovely celebrations of beloved author, Beverly Cleary– the girl from Yamhill, who is now 100 years old!
The above video is from Oregon Public Broadcasting. Check out their full coverage of the creator of Ramona Quimby, Ralph S. Mouse, Henry and Ribsy, and so many more childhood friends. If nothing else, at least see if you’re stumped by any of the questions in their quiz.
One of my favorite birthday posts was from author Trent Reedy: “Happy 100th birthday to the premium Beverly Cleary. She’s proof that kidlit keeps you young, even if you were born during the President Woodrow Wilson administration.”
