Discovery Monday: The Last Fifth Grade of Emerson Elementary

When facing a new week, you deserve a new book!
This week on ‘Discovery Monday’ we introduce author Laura Shovan's debut novel The Last Fifth Grade of Emerson Elementary! 

Laura Shovan's engaging, big-hearted debut is a time capsule of one class's poems during a transformative school year. Families change and new friendships form as these terrific kids grow up and move on in this whimsical novel-in-verse about finding your voice and making sure others hear it. 

Eighteen kids, one year of poems, one school set to close. Two yellow bulldozers crouched outside, ready to eat the building in one greedy gulp. But look out, bulldozers. Ms. Hill's fifth-grade class has plans for you. They're going to speak up and work together to save their school.
