After you have read The Talented Clementine, answer the following discussion questions:
1. The 3rd and 4th graders in Clementine's school are putting on a talent show. If you were participating in Talent-Palooza, Night of the Stars, what would be your act? What other talents do you have?
2. On page 78, Clementine's mom says buying the not very sensible purple "WOW" shoes is "one of the benefits of being a grown-up". What are some other benefits of being a grown-up? What are the benefits of being a child? Which do you think is better?
3. Clementine finally finds her talent with her attention to detail. Why does the audience applaud for Clementine, even though she wasn't in the show? Why was her role important?
4. Clementine felt that the Talent-Palooza was the luckiest day of her life. What was the luckiest day in your life?
