The Adoration of Jenna Fox is on Minnesota's Maud Hart Lovelace list for 2013-14
My students are going to love the ethical sic-fi elements.

Heart of a Shepherd is another MHL nominee. The audio version is excellent, and is narrated by the fabulous Kirby Heyborn who loves librarians (see the video below the book trailer).

So excited to finally see this one in person.
AND there is a robot with the number 5 on it in the illustrations!

The 5sters (aka my young ones) are alternating choosing read alouds.
This week we finished...

The Bud's pick:

Cupcake's pick:

There has been a lot of pretending to be Zombies around the 5 house.
We also loved the Zombie recommended reading titles included in the book.

The Bud chose to re-read our special new copy of The Night Fairy for our next read aloud. 


  1. I need to get that STINK book. I love anything zombies. Thanks for making me aware of it! :)
