This book is so old that many parents, and most children, will not be able to relate to the life style it describes. Which is too bad, because the description of Ramona's emotions is so great. The book is the best I have ever read at taking me back (70 years) to what that age felt like. It also relates the feelings to what happened to Ramona, and how she interpreted it. It shows how important it is for kids to be around people who they know care about them. This is one of the things is think is so bad for today's kids about modern schools and places kids are, where the "attendants" do not relate to them as individuals, either because they are teachers focused on test results or other externalities, or caretakers at daycare or such who don't care, or parents or others who are more concerned with their phone I would recommend this book to parents and grandparents who just don't get why kids react as they do, and also for anyone who wants to know what a supportive environment for children looks (and feels) like.
