around Thanksgiving and read all five in a very short amount of time (who needs clean clothes or meals anyway?). Jonah and I read the first book, with much laughter, in a single morning. Clementine is such a sweet girl and I just love her family, their values, and their simple artistic lifestyle. The books are so funny, and yet, aren't annoying, like so many of the 'funny kid books' (think Ramona, Matilda, Henry... funny, but kind-of-cheeky.) And Marla Frazee's drawings just make me love Clementine all the more! I still think the first book "Clementine" is the best, but they are all lovely and we are so looking forward to finding a copy of Clementine and the Spring Trip in the next couple weeks (it will be released on the 5th of March!)
Books! I've shared about my love of children's literature (that predates having children) before and my New Years Resolution for 2013 was to blog on at least one book a month. Mostly because I love it when others share about great books their reading (so I don't miss out on series like Clementine for five years!) This is technically January's book (can I count it since I took the picture in January?) What are you reading?
