Great show for kids-available on tape
21 July 2004 | by (Long Island) – See all my reviews

Its a great show for children. I was a child in the 80s and I loved the show. I think the books were written in the 70s but the show seemed more 80s like. I liked how they dealt with real situations that children (even children now days) go through. I liked Sarah Polly. She was a great actress. The characters were just like the characters in the book. What I liked was how it showed everything in a child's view. I was really able to relate to Romona as a child. The show was very serious; however, there was some humor in it. Once in a while I will watch a Romona tape. I find some of the problems that Romona has to face to be sad but the show is realistic. If you have a child, watch the tape!
