Charming girl without performing arts talent still comes in handy during the production of the talent show. ( )

The Talented Clementineby Sara Pennypacker is the second in the series. The third and fourth graders will be performing a talent show and Clementine is at a complete loss. I can completely relate — while I have talents, none of them are geared towards live performance!

Clementine goes through all sorts of different ideas for the show. None of them really are appropriate for a talent show. Ultimately she settles on working back stage, but it's a job she falls into.

It was another cute book. I really felt horrible for Clementine as her teacher just couldn't believe she didn't know how to perform on stage. Been there myself in school. ( )

This was a really cute little book about an 8-year-old girl who doesn't think she has any talents because most of her skills are not performance-based. Will she ever figure out what to do?

I love how supportive her parents are, even though Clementine gets into a LOT of mischief. It's not as though she's TRYING to make trouble... she just doesn't think things all the way through... ever.

This would be a really cute little book for young girls. ( )

Haha, so charming! I laughed out loud more than once. Loved the illustrations too, especially the principal. :-) ( )

I'd never read a Clementine book before. I found her refreshing. She reminds me of Ramona. She is not too modern or precocious, nor as obnoxious as Junie B. Jones. It would be a great book for second, third, or fourth grade girls.
