Clementine, Friend of the Week by Sara Pennypacker
Clementine is excited! Her name was chosen for Friend of the Week at her school! She rushes home to share the news with her family and best friend Margaret! Her family was very excited, but Margaret didn't exhibit the same amount of enthusiasm. (But if you know Margaret, this isn't that surprising.)
There are other exciting things happening too! The third and fourth graders are having a bicycle ride on Saturday and Clementine is so excited to decorate her bike with the decorations her father uses to decorate the apartment building....that is until something important gets lost!
What I Thought:
I love Clementine! This is another great installment in this series by Sara Pennypacker. Clementine experiences some of the not-so-fun things about growing up...fighting with friends, losing something important to her, and the excitement of being chosen as the "friend of the week' and getting to share exciting things with her class!
It's encouraging to see Clementine's family there to support her and help her along life's path. This is a great book to give to kids...I think they would love it!
