Well geezus..that's just a bucket of sad. RIP.
I have a number of his books taped back together.
That brings back some happy memories. Ive read Spot books with every one of the V jrs. And hopefully one day with their children (not soon though God forbid). RIP.
That is too bad. Those books were kind of cute.
Flaps hold interest better than almost anything. But it's all Lennny-time after that, wee hands rip flaps off faster than anything. But always with love!
Rest in peace. And send us back a book of spot looking for u in heaven:)
Is he under the angel's wing? No…Is he behind Saint Chistopher? No…..
Bummer, the kids in my family love Spot tho the flaps last about an hour.
Noooooo….another beloved part of my childhood dies
Book clubs around the world this week will be featuring an indepth analysis of Spot goes to the Circus.
Now I'm sad. Going to go hug my puppy.
So sorry to hear this. My daughter and I just loved his books. RIP.
This is the first book I taught my son how to read with. Sad RIP
I had to pop back in because I can no longer resist typing"Spot's dead, Jim"(my children also loved the books, but for real…how can no one answer with that?)(sorry/not sorry…reader's choice)
@Kno! BAD, BAD BAD!! lolololol
I read the books to my babies, and when they were old enough to read, I had them also read them to the younger siblings as well. (great trick for little ones needing reading practice)
Anyone else remember the videos? My kids would get excited seeing them, after reading, or learning how to read the stories.
@Violet the book series I loved as a kid was the Ramona Quimby books even though they were "for girls". I've also been lucky enough to, while not having kids of my own, have two nieces that loved hearing Uncle Chris read about Ramona, Beezus and all the things that troublemaker of a little girl gets into.
I also was honored to be able to have a few Email conversations with Beverly Cleary a few years back. I was able to thank her for being partially responsible for instilling my love of reading as a child and for providing works that I was able to bond with my nieces over. She told me she was blessed to have so many fans who have told her similar things and how she loves to hear every single one of them, that it meant her life had meaning. I then told her that we were the ones who were blessed by her using her gifts to give us such wonderful, timeless books.
Rowdy, I LOVED the Beezus and Ramona series too. I collected them all but was thinking I was going to have to give them to my neighbour due to having all boys, you've inspired me to keep them for my own kidlets. I forget that girls and boys don't typically care about gender separation at that age
