Who doesn't love Clementine? These are my favorite books for bedtime stories. She's a complex little girl with some great insights. The stories have great messages and I have to admit, I always get a little teary at the end of each book. Pennypacker has a great way with words and her narration through the eyes of a little "attention-challenged" girl are very genuine.
This latest book in the Clementine series is another winner. I adores quirky, clever Clementine and her unique view of the world. All our favorite characters are present (OCD Margaret, Mom, Dad, and Mrs. Rice the principal). Clementine's concerns and the way she deals with a new student in the class, as well as her chicken adventures on the class field trip make for a wonderful book.
We're huge Clementine fans in our house. (Even cooler - she's local!) We anxiously awaited the release of the newest Clementine book and were not at all disappointed. We've been reading (and re-reading) Clementine stories to our son for the past year--he's almost five and loves them. Our copies will bear the signs of well-loved books.
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.
Sturdy, well illustrated, and printed on a nice stock, I gave this to my 7 year old granddaughter. The age recommendation was 8+, but the story was so interesting that we worked through some of the more challenging words together. A good pick for boys or girls.
