Beverly Cleary tells the story of a family on a rainy Sunday in a household full of bad moods. Ramona’s father suggests they all go out to dinner. While out, an old man pays for their dinner because he believes they are a nice family and he misses his own family. (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Journeys, 2011)
