Summer is coming, and Clementine is not ready. She is not ready to start speaking to her father again, because she’s still mad at him for eating meat. Instead, she has to express her sadness by giving him drawings of animals she knows would not want to be somebody’s dinner.

Then there is the new baby on the way. Clementine’s mom sure doesn't seem ready. She’s suddenly craz

Adult-ing is hard. It is one of the hardest things I've done to date. But for an hour or so, Clementine made me laugh & helped easy a little of my worry. She is precocious, ingenious, and all around hilarious. I can't wait to read more Clementine adventures!

What a happy accident that we stumbled onto the Clementine books three years ago. The characters are loveably quirky. Clementine learns about herself and how to navigate life with loving, supportive adults and friends.

This was another great addition to the Clementine series. My oldest daughter checked it out from the library and has read it once a day for the past three days. Last night she placed it in my hands, opened to the first page, and commanded me to read. She is rarely so insistent. An

Completely Clementine is the seventh book in the series. Clementine is just as lovable as in earlier books. I continue to like the series very much. It's interesting to read Clementine so soon after reading all the Ramona books. I definitely love, love, love the Ramona books. But I solidly like the Clementine ones. I think I definitely would have liked them as a kid.

In this book:
*Clementine struggles with saying goodbye to her favorite teacher
*Clementine worries about if she's really ready for

3.5 Stars Another cute book in the Clementine Series. That Clementine flare is what the books are all about but the part about giving her dad the silent treatment made me very sad. Just wait until your dad isn't around (deceased or whatever) and you can't talk to will kick your 8 year old self for being such a brat. That is why I can't rate it higher. I know Clementine was trying to drive home her point, but it says in the book that her dad was very sad. We know Clementine is a rambu ...more

Clementina bien puede ser el resultado de lo que ocurre cuando mezclas padres amorosos, profesores que escuchan y, en general, adultos que confían en los más pequeños. Una sencilla, pero tierna e inolvidable historia sobre la maravillosa cotidianidad de Clementina.

I remain completely devoted to Clementine. She is an astoundishlingly-developed character and this book is pretty perfect.

My six year old really likes the Clementine series but this was my first contact with it. Clementine is an amusing little girl who reminds me slightly of Beverly Cleary's Ramona Quimby. Clementine is an elementary school age girl who creatively refers to her brother using various vegetable names. She has some struggles with her parents but manages to eventually work things out with them. In this book, Clementine's mother is pregnant and the family is trying to figure out a name for the soon ...more

Completely Clementine told us all about different things in Clementines life. Such as, her mother being pregnant and having a baby. Also how Clementine does not want to say goodbye to her 3rd grade teacher. It even told us about her crazy friends and about all the strange drawings she makes for her dad.
1. If your mom was pregnant right now what would you do to help get ready for the new baby?
2. Would you want your sibling to be a boy, girl or does it matter? What would you name them if you got

My 8 year old daughter and I read Completely Clementine together not too long after its release. We are big fans of the Clementine series, and have read all of the other books.

Completely Clementine marks a turning point for our heroine. After six books, Clementine has finally reached the end of third grade. She is not very happy about this because she doesn’t like when things change. She is not looking forward to moving to a new class because she likes her teacher and her classroom.

Let me preface this post by telling you that I unabashedly adore Clementine. I have loved her from the first book. So it was with a mixture of excitement and regret that I started reading this 7th and final Clementine book. And you know what, it really was a perfect goodbye. She will live forever in my mind. I am so glad that I have shared her whimsy, her antics and her love with my own son (who is more like Clementine than he realizes). But her story arc has come to a graceful close. I am ...more

Adorable. Did not disappoint. (But you have to read the first and (at least) some of the others in the series first! Precious.
I'm so sad that this is the last book in the series! I love Clementine, she's such a delightful character with all her idiosyncrasies. Clementine is reluctant to say goodbye to her third grade teacher and so avoids it like the plague. At the same time she juggles her anger at her father, her confusion with her mother's odd 'nesting' behavior, and her friend, Margaret's mother's wedding plans.

Clementine is her usual charming self coming up with words like astoundishing to express herself and det

It's the end of the school year, and Clementine is not ready to say goodbye to third grade. What if her fourth grade teacher is not as understanding as Mr. D'matz? Has she really learned enough to move on? Clementine is not sure. On top of that, she's not speaking to her father, who ate some of Mrs. Jacobi's meatloaf in spite of Clementine's strongly-held, albeit recently-discovered, views on eating animals. Plus, Margaret's mother is about to get married, and Clementine's mother is about to ...more

Clementine is a crazy and fun character! She always has something to say and an opinion of her own. She is really upset that her school year is coming to an end, because she loves her third grade teacher. She is also expecting a new baby in her family, so she is going through lots of emotions. Throughout the book, she is mad at her father for eating meat, because she is a vegetarian. The story is all about Clementine and how she reacts to these events in her life. I would use this book in my ...more

Completely Clementine is another hilarious yet touching tale of an amazing young girl and her lovable family of four, soon-to-be five. No matter how close a family is, disagreements arise and Clementine struggles with how to get along with her father when his views of eating meat are so drastically different than her own. Is she really ready to leave third grade and say good bye to the teacher who loves and accepts her quirks and all? And will her mother come around to naming the new baby a thin ...more

This was the perfect wrap-up for a wonderful series. We have seen Clementine change and grow over one school year. Like most children, she has matured dramatically in the grade we have known her. This book brings closure that feels authentic. I will openly admit that the last few pages had me misty-eyed.

I loved this whole series. It's hard not to love the spirited, funny Clementine. I also loved that her parents are portrayed in such a positive light. In so many children's books, the parents are

The Clementine books continue to be so charming. They are just full of warm fuzzies, sunshine, and giggles. Clementine has such spirit and her own brand of child wisdom. As always there are some gentle messages; this time Clementine is mad at her father for not adopting her vegetarianism and doesn't speak to him. A big part of the fun in this book comes from Margaret with all her crazy OCD issues and cleaning fanaticism, not to mention her ridiculous obsession with turning her mother's wedding ...more

Hands down Clementine is one of my favorite series for kids. Clementine is a sweet girl who has a best friend that hates germs, a brother that continuously calls vegetable names and a third grade teacher she is not ready to say good bye to. It's summer and time for Clementine to accept the fact that she has matured and grown. Couple that with the fact that she is so mad at her father she has stopped talking to him and she has trouble dealing with all of these emotions. Never mind that he mom is ...more

At the end of third grade, Clementine is having difficulty saying goodbye to the teacher she loves, looking forward to the family's new baby, and, most challenging of all, not speaking to her father because he ate meat loaf.
I'm having difficulty letting go of Clementine. This is just right - it includes the disappointment that babies can be (it looks, at first, like a loaf of bread), the need to be able to get over disagreements with people you love, and the need to grow and change -- all presen

Cute, and the perfect level of child understanding for the age group. Margaret continues to annoy me because her obsession with cleaning stuff just doesn't ring true for me. The actual obsession does, kids are fixated on all sorts of things, but the level to which its taken, and the way it's played up for laughs is irritating. Clementine and her family, however, are drawn with pitch perfect accuracy. I wish all kids had parents as understanding.

I've loved all of the Clementine books and am sad to see the series end - but I love that it so perfectly covered her 3rd grade year, which makes it feel complete AND easy to recommend to kids who will read the series all in a row instead of growing with it (those series are great, too, but harder to recommend when you think the series will outgrow the kid).

My only burning question will be of no interest to the book's target audience - did Clementine's mother have a home birth? Did the hospital

How can we say goodbye to Clementine? Lucky for us, Clementine is here to show us the way as she struggles with changes of her own, from the end of the school year to the arrival of a new sibling. Clementine navigates her first real argument with her father and leaving her beloved teacher with the same heartwarming and funny touches we've come to expect over seven books. I'll miss Clementine, her family and friends, but Completely Clementine hits all the write notes to wrap up the storylines and ...more
I probably say this in every one of my Clementine reviews, but I just love this character. This is the series I wish I had written. In this final installment (noooo!!!), Clementine is finishing up third grade and struggling with saying "goodbye." It's also almost time for an important new "hello," as baby is due any day. Other subplots include Margaret's mother's wedding and Clementine's feud with her father over disappointment in him for eating meat loaf. A coming-of-age story for the ...more

Clementine is fretting: third grade is almost over and she can’t figure out how to say goodbye to Mr. D’Matz, she’s not speaking to her Dad until he listens to her about eating meat, and her new sibling will be here any day and she still doesn’t know what to name the baby. Luckily, she’s got a strong family, good friends and a supportive school to help her figure it all out. This seventh adventure of Clementine keeps all the heart and humor of the previous stories. Highly recommended for ...more

I started the Clementine experience at book #7. Will definitely be going back for the rest! I loved Clem's cheeky, curious and determined character - a positive figure for your 3rd grader to know.
Best bits include the way she refers to her brother as a different vegetable every time he's mentioned and the "weeping cow" she draws for Dad, in a bid to be meat-free.
Oh, and if you ever have the opportunity to hear Pennypacker speak on the writing process, you will probably cry like I did. #inspired
