Clementine's Letter (Clementine)by Sara Pennypacker
Synopses & Reviews
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 ruining her teacher's once-in-a-lifetime chance — well, it's worth it. Isn't it?
In the sixth installment of the acclaimed Just Grace series, best friends Grace and Mimi take on a new adventure as mother's helpers when they learn Mimi's going to be a big sister! Playful and easy to relate to, Just Grace and the Terrible Tutu is perfect for emerging chapter book readers.
Grace is back to her zany antics again! Grace and Mimi have a secret: Mimi is going to be a big sister. To get ready, the girls try being "mother's helpers" to a family down the street, and Mimi begins to doubt her big sister abilities when 4-year-old Lily seems to like Grace best. But when Lily turns into a Terrible Tutu, Grace can't escape her! Can Grace use her empathy powers to shows Lily and Mimi the creative path towards a new friendship?
