Clementine, We Adore You!

Oh, how we love the Clementine series by Sara Pennypacker. The kids launch into fits of giggles every time she refers to her brother as another vegetable name... rutabaga, bok choy, string bean, broccoli, spinach, etc.

Her "good ideas" also get a good laugh, groan, or "oh... no..." from them too. I love her family, how they interact, and the all the ways they show their love for each other.

Everything from Clementine's imagination to her regular meetings with the Principal are amusing, sneaky little lessons on how to behave.

She shows us that we are all delightful in being our true-blue imperfect selves.
