What planet are you from Clarice Bean? By Lauren Child.
‘In school we are learning about the planet of Earth.’
This is an amazing book – it is written from Clarice Bean’s point of view, and her voice is that of a clever 7-10 year old starting to be more aware of the world and things around her. It is very similar (and just as enchanting) as Lauren Child’s more famous Charlie and Lola stories. Clarice is a lot like Lola, though perhaps a little older.
Clarice has to ‘do’ a project on the environment (with Robert Granger ‘I mostly ignore him’) but doesn’t know what to do: ‘My mind is a blanket.’ This book shows many of the things that are going on in her life and how different aspects of her local environment affect her and her family – in the end Clarice’s project is about her being an ecowarrior picketing the removal of an old tree in her street!
This would be a great way to get across what Geography is ‘about’ with a class and to trigger ideas about what is out there in the world – both locally and more globally.
I think that it could be used with guided reading more successfully than whole class as there are so many things to notice and talk about on almost every page with cleverly linked ideas about recycling, gravity “sometimes I think gravity is a pity” concrete, aerosol sprays, the world of business, pollution and of course trees. Inspiringly the story also shows how people can get involved in looking after their environment, in small or larger ways. Even Mrs Wilberton (her class teacher) has to say “Well done Clarice Bean!”

Read information about the authorLauren Child grew up in Wiltshire as the middle child of three sisters and the daughter of two teachers. She has always been interested in the many aspects of childhood, from gazing into toy shop windows to watching American children's shows from the 1960s. After attending two Art Schools, where Lauren admits that she did not learn much, she travelled for six months, still unsure about which career to embark upon.
Before Lauren starting writing and illustrating children's books she started her own company 'Chandeliers for the People' making exotic, elegant lampshades. It was only when she came to write and illustrate the book Clarice Bean, That's Me that she decided to devote her time to writing and illustrating books for children, which combines her fascination for childhood and her talent for designing and creating. Lauren gets her inspiration from other people's conversations or from seeing something funny happen.
Lauren lives in North London.
