December Recommendations for Kids


Spaceheadz by Jon Scieszka - Michael K.’s first day of day of fifth grade in a new school and he is stuck sitting with aliens! Bob and Jennifer, and their talkative hamster major Fluffy, are on earth to recruit millions of kids into spaceheads in an effort to save the earth from being turned off. Michael had previously starred in a cereal commercial, claiming he could do anything, and since the aliens feed on earth’s errant TV and radio broadcast waves they believe he is perfect to help them recruit 3.14 million kids to their cause. Log onto to become a spaceheadz yourself!

Olivia Claus by Kama Einhorn - ‘Twas the Night before Christmas and Mathilda, Olivia’s favorite stuffed monkey, is nowhere to be found!! How can it be a Merry Christmas, and how can Olivia save the day and find what’s missing?
