I grew up reading Beverly Cleary's books and it has been so fulfilling to see my girls enjoying her books as well. Beverly Cleary's books are timeless and filled with imagination, excitement and inspirational messages. Basically all the elements that makes it a great book for kids. Cleary credited the spirit of childhood which she believed is just as timeless as her stories. "I think deep down inside children are all the same," she told NPR in a 2006 interview.
