    Too Clever

    This is a too cute little book. Loved the stories. Each chapter is a short story about one certain child and the questions or events he or she goes through during the course of the day. There are educational lessons, such as learning to count, and correct usage of pronouns, as well as, some of the many questions kids have when they have curious minds. The illustrations are very cute and help to paint a visual picture of the story. This is a great little story to read to your child or have him/her read to you.

    Too Clever

    Written by Julia E. Antoine

    Illustrated by Frankniel Concepcion

    "Too Clever," first in this series of the "Too Clever" stories, introduces different types of stories to be read aloud to children or read by children who are learning reading and math skills. Each enjoyable story in this well-crafted and nicely illustrated book allows the child readers to attempt to resolve the problems by themselves. In some of the stories the child figures out the solution, in others, they must wait until older. Yet each story shows resiliency and hope possessed by young children in both problem-solving and following their dreams.

    Will Timothy ever get to meet the man in the moon? Johnny learns that the new math he's just learned is not as simple as it seemed, and Cleo discovers there are many ways to solve a dilemma. These are just a few examples of good parenting skills being taught to children anxious and curious to learn. These books would be excellent choices for use by teachers in elementary schools, as well as parents reading to their children at home.

    Author Julia E. Antoine, winner of the Silver award in the "Moms Choice Awards", level 2 for children aged 9 - 12, for all three books, writes a series which will delight inquiring young minds as they learn new things in their lives each day. This is the first bToo Clever

    I had a wonderful time reading Too Clever, the first book in the series.
    The book has ten short stories, some are way shorter than others, but
    Antoine used unique characters and topics, to make the book interesting
    and fun. Each character has his/her own message and there was a lesson
    to be learned from all the stories. There was Johnny learning to count,
    and Megan with her troublesome pronouns, etc. Excellent book for
    children six and over. I have to admit, after reading this first book,
    I've purchased all the ones available in the series.

    Reviewed by Karen P. for Readers Favorite In "Too Clever&q

    Reviewed by Karen P. for Readers Favorite

    In "Too Clever", author Julia Antoine has written several delightful stories which speak of the issues of early childhood. Although the author designates this book for children aged 9-12, the stories and the writing appear to appeal to younger children in grades K-3. Some of the topics covered in the book include a new shoe being a prized personal possession, a child attempting to become an eagle via building wooden wings, a child dreaming about a figure on the surface of the moon, a child confused by the size of her own shadow and a child who obsessively eats tomato sandwiches.

    The stories are clever and will appear to very young children who tend to see the world from a self-focused viewpoint. As a parent, I did have a bit of trouble getting into a couple of the stories in which the child manipulates the parent in order to get his or her way. But, for the most part, the stories were fun and they would appeal to the early child reader. For the young child, I would see the parent reading the story and then having a child-parent discussion to ascertain what the child got from the story. In the stories of manipulation, the parent might ask what the child listener thinks about the story, about child's reasoning. In general, the stories are cute and they reflect the thought processes of the very young child as he or she struggles to interpret the environment in which he or she lives.

    Excellent book - highly recommend

    This is a great book for third graders and up. Informative and challenging for quick minded children. My daughter had a lot of fun trying to solve the math and English exercises, as well as, the every day problems encountered by the Too Clever kids in the stories...Well written with beautiful graphics.
