Clementine is in third grade this year, and it is going to be a great year. She loves her teacher Mr. D’atz. But when she finds out Mr. D’atz may be leaving on a trip for the rest of the year she gets very upset. He can’t leave, he promised he would stay with them and even told them about all the cool things he would do with them this year. So when the class is asked to write recommendation letters for Mr D’atz to help him with being chosen to take the trip, Clementine decides a recommendation that is not good would be the way to go. If she writes that Mr. D’atz is terrible then he won’t get to go. But she wonders if she is doing the right thing when she finds out that he and everyone else will be reading her letter. Can she fix her mess and
do the right thing, even if it means losing Mr. D’atz for the rest of the school year. Read Clementine’s Letter by Sara Pennypacker to find out.
