Jane has a date ... with handsome Stan Crandall!
Quiet Jane is amazed when a new boy in school, Stan Crandall, rescues her from a baby-sitting dilemma. And when Stan calls to invite her to the movies, she is thrilled. Her excitement is soon overwhelmed by a flurry of worries. What should she wear? Will her parents embarrass her? Is she grown-up enough for a boy like Stan? A taste of exotic Chinese food, a tired blue jalopy, and a case of appendicitis all figure in to this lively story of first romance.About the Author:
Beverly Cleary is one of America's most beloved authors. As a child, she struggled with reading and writing. But by third grade, after spending much time in her public library in Portland, Oregon, she found her skills had greatly improved. Before long, her school librarian was saying that she should write children's books when she grew up.
Instead she became a librarian. When a young boy asked her, "Where are the books about kids like us?" she remembered her teacher's encouragement and was inspired to write the books she'd longed to read but couldn't find when she was younger. She based her funny stories on her own neighborhood experiences and the sort of children she knew. And so, the Klickitat Street gang was born!
Mrs. Cleary's books have earned her many prestigious awards, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, presented to her in recognition of her lasting contribution to children's literature. Dear Mr. Henshaw won the Newbery Medal, and Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father have been named Newbery Honor Books. Her characters, including Beezus and Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ralph, the motorcycle-riding mouse, have delighted children for generations.
