Kids rate the Beverly Cleary adaptation

Posted on

”I laughed and cried, so I didn’t get bored. The stuff that made me cry is when Aunt Bea [Ginnifer Goodwin] got married and everyone danced, but that was a happy cry. And I cried when the cat died because that was sad.”
— Brinley Burns, 6, Austin

”I liked when the little girl made Beezus trip. I like Selena Gomez!”
— Libby Hack, 5, Waco, Tex.

”It was very good. I could relate to it because she’s my sister [points to her sister Alexandra] and we fight.”
— Olivia Rapp, 12, Austin

”I liked that Ramona had all those ideas to save her house.”
— Alexandra Rapp, 9, Austin

”I liked how they adapted the books. Selena did a good job too.”
— Lexie Terry, 11, Austin
