I liked books 2 through 7 in the Clementine series more than the first one. I have to admit, they are pretty good. My daughter loved them and I eventually warmed up to them.
What I did not warm to was the price. Each book is about two hours long, but they are priced the same as much longer books. That doesn’t seem fair.
If they were sold in bundles of 3 or maybe even 2 stories I would be good with that. But at one credit per book, I will return them, get my credits back, and get longer books for my kids. Maybe if this series goes on sale, I’ll re-buy them then.
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
I really like the idea of a Family Meeting sign that is posted on the refrigerator. Everyone knows and the meeting is after dinner. Hmm. Maybe I will implement that in my household! Clementine is the funniest child. We love her antics. In this book she worries about another child coming into the family. Charming!
I really like her narration. This book narration is starting to sound different. I am not sure why. It might be the production or it might be Jessica's voice has changed. I am not sure. This story is starting to be read too fast. A bit slower would be more enjoyable.
Yes! Full of fun.
For reasons I do not understand, some of these books are listed as Sarah Pennypacker and others are Sara Pennypacker. Make sure you see all 6 books when you search for Clementine. While not exactly critical, it is helpful to listen in order. First is Clementine, second is The Talented Clementine, 3rd - Clementine's Letter, 4th - Friend of the Week, 5th - Family Meeting, 6th - Spring Trip.
Audible? Could we have a correction on the author's name and a View Series to link these books together? That is the only thing that would improve the whole book.
