    One thought on “Arlene on the Scene”

    1. Our whole family was excited to read this sweet book. It started with seventeen year old Summer to 83 year old Mawmaw to nine year old Nik. We all loved Arlene!!

    2. When I hear CMT, I think of Country Music Television. Now I have another meaning for it. A good book to introduce different challenges - physical, emotional, and social - to younger readers. Good for 3-5 grade readers.

    3. My family has CMT. While only my mom wears braces, we all have had to realize our limits. This was a simple but enjoyable read.
