If you’re familiar with Beezus, Ramona, Ralph S. Mouse, or Mr. Henshaw, then you also know Beverly Bunn.
As you may have guessed, Beverly Bunn is Beverly Cleary!
I learned this when I recently called Beverly Cleary to record her pronouncing and sharing a story about her name for the TeachingBooks.net Author Name Pronunciation Guide. Now you can hear her voice as she tells a story from her childhood about her maiden name, Bunn.
Does hearing Beverly Cleary’s story make you think of a certain high-spirited and spunky character from her books?
