In Sara Pennypacker's new book, Clementine and the Family Meeting, Clementine finds herself facing the prospect of a new brother or sister and not quite sure how to handle it. With the help of a rat named Eighteen and her new grown up tool belt, Clementine comes to terms with having a new baby in the family. I love that this book is a fun look at a subject that many kids find themselves in. It really gives a voice to the big brothers and the big sisters. They don't get a choice of new family additions yet it chances their life forever. This book is perfect for children who will become big brothers or sisters and for those who just enjoy a good laugh.
Madison and I both read this book. It really makes me want to read the whole series. It is a fun book that really gets to the heart to the family changes new siblings bring. This series is recommended for the 7-10 year age range.
