I bought this book to read with my 3rd grade students. We had read 3 of the other Clementine books and my whole class had fallen in love with them. We read a total of 4 of the Clementine books together before we ran out of time at the end of the school year. I have no doubt that if we had more time, we would have wound up reading all the Clementine books. Every single book that we read together kept the class engaged and enthralled.
