    Starting from a farm girl to becoming an inspired writer, Beverly Cleary made it.

    A Girl From Yamhill is an amazing story about Beverly Cleary, who is well known for her many stories for kids and young adults. A Girl From Yamhill is a story that tells you how a simple farm girl could become an awesome, amazing writer. This memoir was influence to me because it inspired me to follow my dreams. A Girl From Yamhill tells you that it doesn¿t matter where you come from, following your dreams and doing what you love to do matters matter¿s most. Beverly Cleary describes about how she always had a curious mind and how that is what helped her such a good writer. Ever since she was a little girl who spent time jumping into piles of hay, and chasing rainbows, and attempting going to the end of the world, she knew that she had a gift. She could make up funny stories that made her parents laugh and the towns people smile. She loved to listen to her mother¿s stories when they were stuck inside on a cold winter day. Her mother would tell her about how they would go sledding when she was little, in Michigan. Beverly Cleary would always wish she could go sledding but all they had on the ground was a thin coat of snow barely that covered the ground. This story is an incredible memoir to inspiring to young writers and readers everywhere. After you read this book, you will see that Beverly Cleary isn¿t just a funny writer she¿s a simple girl from Yamhill.

    Cleary, one for all ages

    If you have ever read any books by Beverly Cleary this is the book for you! Beverly takes you on an exciting journey through her troubles and excitements as a young girl growing up in the depression era. Thanks to her amazing descriptive writing you will feel as if you are growing up in her neighborhood. When I was younger I loved ready Beverly Cleary's books. It was interesting to me to be able to see where some of her inspirations for different stories came from. It was even more interesting that most of her stories came straight from her own life experiences. Young or old, this sweet and compelling story will keep you turning page after page.

    A GIRL FROM YAMHILL

    I liked it because Beverly Cleary describes each and every event in her childhood clearly and it fells like you are always right beside her when she encounters these events. It's not a pompous book in any way - it's honest, and any girl would love it.

    I thought mothers were to be Loving and Understanding

    At first i was board. But once they moved I got interested on what was going to happen to her dad. Then the mother with Gerhart I would have ran away. And then high school ended. I could kiss her father for saying yes to higher education.

    I'm a high school student and had to do a report on it. I thought it would be boring. I thought wrong. I read it and love it! I like how Beverly Cleary explains how they struggled during the Great Depression. ITs very easy to read. :)
