    One thought on “Clementine's Letter”

    1. You just cannot go wrong with Clementine. She is sweet, thoughtful, smart, funny (mostly without meaning to be), and thoroughly entertaining in every way.I think my favorite part of this third installment in the series (which I hope will be around for a loooong time) was the way Clementine and her substitute teacher discussed the importance of "knowing the rules before." I had never really thought about it the way Clementine describes it, but she's absolutely, 100% correct. It is important to kn [...]

    2. Clementine's back and better than ever. Just as soon as Clementine was getting the hang of third grade (she hadn't been sent to the principal's office in a week!), she learns that Mr. D'Matz is a finalist in a contest for a trip to Egypt. He'll be gone all week at the judging and if he wins, he could be going to Egypt for the rest of the year! There's no way Clementine's going to let that happen, especially after she meets her new substitute teacher. Mrs. Nagel has changed all the rules and Clem [...]

    3. Every time a new Clementine book comes out, my toes wiggle with glee. I know that between those pages, I will find moments to laugh aloud, discover myself as a small child again, recognize my children, and simply sink into a wonderful book. They never disappoint.This third Clementine book has her bonding with her third grade teacher until he is nominated to go on a trip to Egypt. Now Clementine has to cope with a new teacher who doesn't seem to have the same rules while desperately trying to kee [...]

    4. Another great story! The plots are fun, the main character is adorable, and the illustrations are delightful. This is my 3rd Clementine book, and I REALLLY want to find out the real of name of her little brother! While I'm sure children woud enjoy this book, I also think this book would benefit teachers, reminding them that sometimes an off-beat or unusual child might be a treasure not just a trial. It can inspire you as a teacher to reach out to all those in your classroom and be understanding [...]

    5. I fell in love this week. The object of my affection is an irrepressible young redhead called Clementine. My own little redhead has been acquainted with Clementine for some time, but I have only just the pleasure of meeting her. Clementine reminds me so much of my own children. She is clever, funny, thoughtful, caring, sensitive and like most children, much smarter than we adults think! I smiled from ear to ear throughout this book and even found myself growing a wee bit misty at the close with [...]

    6. These books make my seven year old daughter continuously hug me when we are reading them together. She is so delighted and heart warmed by them and so am I. This installment is not my very favorite but it's still absolutely wonderful. Heresy maybe but I may be fonder of clementine than Ramona. There are just some weird gendered things in the Quimby books that I always find so off putting! Adults are also somewhat draconian and certainly harder on Ramona than they are on clementine, whereas the r [...]

    7. 150 pages. Another cut story in this fun series. I like how Clementine interacts with her parents and family. Her parents help her consider situations she is dealing with. There is lots of humor and realistic school and friends situations that kids can relate to easily. Highly recommended for Gr.3-5. Girls may like it better than boys.

    8. Not quite as cute as the second one, but still an adorable book. I am really enjoying reading these aloud to my daughters and will be sad when we get to the end of the series.

    9. 1. In Clementine’s Letter we get to meet Clementine, a third grader, her friends and family. Clementine likes her teacher. He understands this impulsive and inquisitive little girl who has a tendency to get into trouble. Just when everything is going well, Clementine’s world goes topsy-turvy. Mr. D’Matz is one of three finalists in a competition to go on a dig to Egypt. Each class is asked to submit letters explaining why their teacher should be selected. Realizing what this means Clementi [...]

    10. This one in the series finally got me to a five star rating. Clementine learns that if you truly care about someone, you'll want to do kind things for them, even if doing that thing means you might end up sad. Clementine's class has been tasked with writing letters to a panel of judges who will decide which teacher gets to go on an Adventures for Teachers trip. Clementine loves her teacher and is heartbroken to think that if he wins the contest he'll be gone for the rest of the school year. At f [...]

    11. Clementine can't believe her ears her beloved teacher, Mr. D'Matz, might be leaving them for the rest of the year to go on a research trip to Egypt! No other teacher has ever understood her impulsiveness, her itch to draw constantly, or her need to play "Beat the Clock" when the day feels too long. And in his place, he's left a substitute with a whole new set of rules that Clementine just can't figure out. The only solution, she decides, is to hatch a plan to get Mr. D'Matz back. If it means rui [...]

    12. I'm kind of ready to be done with Clementine but my nine yr old isn't. It's starting to be like We get it Clementine, you're wacky, you're reckless, you have good intentions. What I do like is her family. She has good parents, and a good teacher too. The adults in these books have kind of obnoxiously excelerated emotional intelligence. No one is ever *that* good, but it's a nice world, and I feel like I get some parenting pointers in reading this series

    13. This 3rd episode of the Clementine series does not disappoint. Note to all parents: if your 3rd grader is asking you how to spell "menace to society" when completing a homework assignment, you might want to investigate. Just saying. Love, love, love the way we see inside Clementine's very active 8-year-old self and listen to her inner voice. She is not the sum of her actions and it is heartwarming to see the adults in her life taking time to understand why she does what she does.

    14. Clementine is impetuous, but she is also kind hearted and charming. Another lovely installment, in which Clementine navigates apartment politics and the possible loss of a beloved teacher.

    15. Having already established the precedent for non-YA CLW titles with the first two Clementine books, I decided to go ahead and do a chick lit Wednesday review for the latest installment as well.Since her introduction, Clementine has colored both her and best friend Margaret's heads with permanent markers, saved her school talent show from catastrophe, and been sent to the principal's office so many times that she knows the way pretty much by heart. In Clementine's Letter (2008) by Sara Pennypacke [...]

    16. I like this book because Clementine has many adventures in this book.Also she tries to get Mr.Dmaz out of the adventures for teachers program.For example on page 9 Clementine states that her teacher promised her that he would stay fr the year,and now Clementine says she doesnt think breaking a promiseis a reason to be proud of someone.Another example is on page 45 Clementine asked Mitchell how was summer camp he started to talk about a guy who clementine wrote about in her teachers paper to show [...]

    17. Clementine is a cute little redheaded girl who lives in a high-rise apartment building with her family – her father, her mother, and her baby brother – where her father is the manager. Clementine is having a great year in school; she adores her teacher, Mr. D’Matz, and is staying out of the principal’s office. Oh no! Mr. D’Matz announces to the class that he has entered a contest for teachers and if he is the winner then he will leave for Egypt and will be gone for the rest of the scho [...]

    18. I love Clementine. I do. And it is my hope that you'll be inspired to seek Clementine out on your own. This is her third adventure, the previous two are Clementine (2006) and The Talented Clementine (2007). "Our young heroine, Clementine is spunky and vibrant leaving a mark wherever she goes. Easily noticed by teachers and principals but not necessarily for the right reasons. But despite some behavior problems, Clementine remains a funny, lovable character.Clementine always has good intentions, [...]

    19. Clementine was just getting the hand of 3rd grade. Everyone said so, her teacher, the principal, her parents. Then her teacher is entered in a contest to win a trip to Egypt. He goes away for a week leaving his class in the care of a substitute, Mrs. Nagel. Clementine can't figure this woman out. Mrs. Nagel's rules are contrary to her teacher's rules. Before you know it, Clementine is once again making numerous trips to the principal's office. She has a plan to get her teacher back. The students [...]

    20. When I first started reading this book, I began to form a negative opinion. This was due to the author throwing in a couple of too mature references such as Clemetine's drawing of "outlaws drinking beer in a saloon" and how her teacher's name could sound like two curse words. But once past those parts, the character of clementine really drew me in. She is quirky, energetic, and impulsive. The bulk of the book is about Clementine being angry because her teacher may be going to Egypt, leaving the [...]

    21. Another fun Clementine book with some laugh-out-loud funny parts including this one:"The other two classes were already in the lobby. One was a group of high schoolers, standing around butting each other with their shoulders. The other was a kindergarten class. They were butting each other with their shoulders, too, but they weren't standing around, because most of them had been knocked to the floor. Before our class could get going with the shoulder-butting, it was time to go into the auditoriu [...]

    22. Perfect 3rd grade read aloudMy daughter and I are making our way through the series. We enjoyed this one as it gave us lots of opportunities to make emotional connections.

    23. Clementine is my new best friend. I have read all three of Sara Pennypacker's books and eagerly await the next. I grabbed this one the day it came into my school's library. (Yes, I am 32.)Clementine is a hysterically impulsive child who, like many impulsive children, realizes there is something different about her. She acts first and thinks laterch later. She is made uncomfortable by sharp pointy shapes and is comforted by soft round shapes (that maybe my favorite thing about her). She is curren [...]

    24. Clementine's Letter by Sara Pennypacker and illus. by Marla Frazee, published 2008. Genre: FictionFormat: Hardback, Print.Plot: (Spoilers) The third book in the Clementine series, this story follows Clementine as she tries to stop her favorite teacher from leaving to study in Egypt for a time and take his position back from the substitute teacher she doesn't like. The substitue doesn't know all the rules Clementine followed with her other teacher and so she gets in trouble a lot. When the class [...]

    25. I really enjoyed reading this book. I think that a lot of elementary students will be able to relate to Clementine about having a favorite teacher and wanting that teacher to stay at the school. She gets in trouble a lot about not paying attention in class, which i'm sure many third graders will be able to relate to. Children around the third grade age enjoy reading about the adventures that other children their age end up embarking on. This book is a good was to start your kids on chapter books [...]

    26. Clementine's Letter by Sara Pennypacker is the third book in the series. It won the Christopher Award in 2008. It was also the first book in the series I read, as part of my notable books and materials for children 5 to 8 project.Clementine is having a rough week. Her beloved third grade teacher, Mr D'Matz has been nominated for a year long trip to an archeological dig in Egypt. To make things worse Clementine just can't seem to do anything right for the substitute. At home she wants to get her [...]

    27. Clementine, our indomitable heroine in scarlet curls, has trouble explaining a stray letter she writes. A little advice, Clementine: son't ever put anything down in print. I love the fact that Clementine realizes that she may get sent on errands to the principal's office because she is a really responsible girl, or because she knows the way by heart--self awareness! out little darling is now in third grade and loving it? Of course not-- she is alternately accepting herself and the system. I am s [...]
