Born in 1916, author Beverly Cleary has released a plethora of entertaining books in her lifetime. Today is the day all of her readers can say happy birthday to her as she was born on April 12th. She is 101 years old.
What is possibly an unbelievable fact to many who have enjoyed her books is that she wasn’t always a great reader. In elementary school, reading words have her much trouble, however, with tutoring and finding books to read that she enjoyed, by the time she was leaving elementary school, she was reading and writing like no other time – great.
Happy Birthday, Beverly Cleary, and thank you.
