Clementine, a third grader, thinks that her family of four people is just fine the way it is. Who needs a baby? There won’t even be room at the kitchen table, which has only four sides! Clementine and the Family Meeting is the fifth book in the popular series of books about Clementine and her family.
Clementine’s voice—both internal and external—is terrific. “Dad reached over and opened the marmalade, which is a kind of jelly that grown-ups pretend to like even though it has orange grinds in it, which we throw away for a reason.” Don’t miss this series, by Sara Pennypacker; it’s great for independent readers, as well as for shared family reading.
