Happy 100th Birthday Beverly Cleary!


Beloved children’s author Beverly Cleary turns 100 today!  She’s sold millions of books, won several awards, has statues of her best know characters in a park in Portland, has an elementary school named after her and has written not one but two memoirs. Cleary’s most loved characters, Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, Beezus, Ribsy and little Ralph S. Mouse have left an indelible impact on all who have read her books.
