About the Author

Lauren Child attended art school and did "lots of other things" before writing CLARICE BEAN, THAT'S ME. She designed ceramics for children, worked as an artist's assistant, and created lampshades for her own company. About the inspiration for this book—her first for Candlewick Press—she says, "I grew up with an older sister who read a lot and a younger sister who I had to share a room with whenever we had visitors (which was a lot, and my sister was very untidy, and guess who had to clean up the mess.)"

This book is about a young girl living ina large family. It shows how they interact with one another and how different that are but basically going through a daily routine in her house. She really shows how everyone just wants peace and quiet from everyone else music. This books illustations are big, crazy, and all over the place. I think children would be able to relate to some one the family dynamics and home life of Clarice Bean.

Clarice introduces us to her family and all the characters in it. You learn about her teeenage deperessed brother, her boy crazy sister and her younger adhd brother. This is all from the point of view of Clarice so she talks about her parents in a very childish way. She talks about her dad rambling on in the phone, and her mom who takes alot of baths. Then there is clarice who just wants peace and quiet.

Clarice Bean is a middle child who is just searching for some peace and quite in her noisy home. The story progresses to her describing how each family member enjoys their alone, quiet time. In the end the and her little brother Minal Cricket are fighting and she is sent to her room for three whole hours by herself, which she loves! She finally gets want she had been hoping for, some peace and quite. This is a clever book, I really enjoy her character. She is quirky, creative, adventurous, and I believe the readers can really relate to the story's characters, not just Clarice, but any one in the family too.

This book introduces you to Clarice Bean's world and family. It goes through all the disfunction that happens in her house on a daily basis. It is good to use when talking about different kind of families.

Clarice Bean just wants some peace and quiet, but she has to share a room with her younger brother and has a crazy family to boot. We meet all the crazy people she deals with and learn about them and her life. She finally gets some quiet when she is sent to her room for tormenting her little brother.

This is about Clarice Bean's family and the fact that there is never any peace and quiet so Clarice Bean gets in trouble and sent to her room alone getting her some peace and quiet. This is a very silly book and would be great just to read to kindergarten.

I read this to a classroom of thrid graders and they loved it! The illustrations are so full of life! The children really seemed to connect with this book and they laughed a ton.
