Recommended Reading: Clementine by Sara Pennypacker

Clementine cracks me up. These books are witty, with humor both kids and adults will enjoy. I absolutely love Clementine's unstoppable spirit and optimism. So cute and funny.  These would make good read-on-their-own books for 3rd and 4th graders and excellent read-alouds for bedtime with even younger ages. There are five books currently available in the series with a new title being released in March. 

North Shelby has copies of these books in print and in downloadable audio book form. Stop by the library to pick up a copy or click here to reserve one through our catalog. I've listened to the audio books through our OneClickDigital system and the reader does an excellent job. I think these would be wonderful for riding in the car with kids.

Book Description:
Clementine is having not so good of a week.
-On Monday she's sent to the principal’s office for cutting off Margaret’s hair.
- Tuesday, Margaret's mother is mad at her.
- Wednesday, she's sent to the principal... again.
- Thursday, Margaret stops speaking to her.
- Friday starts with yucky eggs and gets worse.
- And by Saturday, even her mother is mad at her.
Okay, fine. Clementine is having a DISASTROUS week.
