Someone might want to read it because they probably would want to find out if Ramona will ever overcome this horrible fear. It can also help you deal with your own problems, like if you are afraid of the dark.
The lesson that was learned was that you shouldn't judge a teacher until you get to know him or her good. You may find out that you actually like the teacher after being in his/her class for awhile. My favorite part was when Ramona had won a game against a boy in her class. I liked this part because I wanted Ramona to win.
I found Ramona's parents interesting because they paid more attention to the bigger child, Beezus. Many children can relate to this because they may have a younger sibling that gets more attention than them.
Ramona reminded me of myself once because I thought my teacher was mean from rumors, but it I didn't listen to the rumors, and gave it a chance and everything turned out okay.
You should read this book. It might remind you of when you were afraid of something.
