Read full description of the books:
"But Jimmy - Jimmy likes to play with real things. He doesn't want to play with a toy hammer and toy nails. He wants to play with a real grown up hammer and real grown up nails. When Jimmy's father brings him a present, the first thing Jimmy asks is, "Is it real?"
"I'm a little bird, sitting on a nest," said Janet.
"That is not a nest!" yelled Jimmy. "That is my hole, and I want to dig in it!"
"I just wanted to borrow it for a little while."
"I don't want Janet to borrow my hole," said Jimmy. and he began to dig again with his real shovel.
"Jimmy, you look so hot and tired," said his mother. "Why don't you stop and rest awhile?"
"No," said Jimmy, "I'm digging the biggest hole in the world."
"Now Jimmy," said his father. "I don't want you or Janet to get hurt."
"You said I could dig a big hole," Jimmy reminded him.
"Yes, but I didn't know you could dig such a big hole," answered his father. This made Jimmy feel better. His father hadn't known he could dig such a big hole.
"There must be something we could do with such a big hole," said Jimmy's mother.
"After a while Jimmy and Janet's father came back. When he got out of his car he took something out of the backseat..... It was a tree growing in a big tin can. "Is it a real tree?" asked Jimmy.
"Yes it's a real spruce tree," answered his father, "and your hole is just the right size to plant it in."

Read information about the authorBeverly Cleary (born April 12, 1916) is the author of over 30 books for young adults and children. Her characters are normal children facing challenges that many of us face growing up, and her stories are liberally laced with humour. Some of her best known and loved characters are Ramona Quimby and her sister Beatrice ("Beezus"), Henry Huggins, and Ralph S. Mouse.
Beverly Cleary was born Beverly Atlee Bunn in McMinnville, Oregon. When she was 6, her family moved to Portland, Oregon, where she went to grammar and high school. She was slow in learning to read, due partly to her dissatisfaction with the books she was required to read and partly to an unpleasant first grade teacher. It wasn't until she was in third grade that she found enjoyment from books, when she started reading The Dutch Twins by Lucy Fitch Perkins. Thereafter, she was a frequent visitor to the library, though she rarely found the books she most wanted to read — those about children like herself.
She moved to California to attend the University of California, Berkeley, and after graduation with a B.A in English in 1938, studied at the School of Librarianship at the University of Washington in Seattle, where she earned a degree in librarianship in 1939. Her first job was as a librarian in Yakima, Washington, where she met many children who were searching for the same books that she had always hoped to find as a child herself. In response, she wrote her first book, Henry Huggins, which was published in 1950. Beezus and Ramona, Cleary's first novel to feature the Quimby sisters as the central focus of the story, was published in 1955, although Beezus and Ramona made frequent appearances in the Henry Huggins series as supporting characters.
In 1940 she married Clarence T. Cleary and they moved to Oakland, California. The Clearys became parents to a set of twins, Marianne Elisabeth and Malcolm James, in 1955. Clarence Cleary died in 2004. Beverly Cleary currently lives in Carmel, California.
She has also written two autobiographies, A Girl from Yamhill and My Own Two Feet.
