Clementine for Christmas

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


An irresistible and timeless Christmas story by the author of The Angel Tree. Josie usually keeps to herself, but she comes out of her shell when she and her dog, Clementine, volunteer at the local hospital during the holiday season. Josie loves dressing up in silly costumes, singing carols, and helping to prepare for the big Christmas Festival. That is, until she learns that this year's Festival has been canceled. Meanwhile, Oscar's parents are fighting more and more--and so is he. He gets into trouble at school, and his punishment? Volunteer hours at the local hospital. Gabby's life seems perfect. She's stylish, smart, and everyone looks up to her. But Gabby has a secret, one that could ruin everything. Then, Clementine disappears, Oscar's parents separate, and Gabby's secret is uncovered. Together, can Josie, Oscar, and Gabby find a way to save the holiday, or will this be the worst Christmas ever? Daphne Benedis-Grab, author of The Angel Tree, has created a heartwarming story that sparkles with humor, light, and Christmas spirit.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 14, 2015 – As she did in The Angel Tree (2014), author and PW reviewer Benedis-Grab uses the countdown to Christmas as a through line for a warm story that emphasizes friendship, compassion, and generosity the hallmarks of the holiday. Since her father's death, sixth-grader Josie has found solace in her dog, Clementine, and in her volunteer efforts at the hospital's pediatric ward, performing skits and songs. Josie is gearing up for her favorite project the hospital's Christmas Festival when she is paired up with two dissimilar classmates to save the show from being canceled. As the program comes together, the kids dispel misperceptions of each other, secrets are revealed, and new bonds are formed. The realistic family dynamics, focus on positive strength, and unwavering affection of a very special pup make this tale worthy of a curtain call. Ages 8 12.
