Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Beverly Cleary Children’s Choice Award (BCCCA) Committee,
it is with great sadness that we convey the news of Beverly Cleary’s
death.  In her very full life of 104 years, she has brought enjoyment to
countless young readers and their parents.  The world will sorely miss her. We
encourage families to celebrate her life by reading aloud her books and
also participate in the BCCCA contest.

Her funny stories about Henry Huggins and his dog Ribsy, the sisters Ramona
and Beezus Quimby, and a motorcycling mouse named Ralph never talked down
to readers.


*Beverly Cleary Wrote About Real Life, and Her Readers Loved Her for It*

The creator of Ramona Quimby and Henry Huggins constructed a world that
children recognized — one that changed with the times.
