    1 thought on “President of the Whole Fifth Grade

    1. I really loved this book. I wanted to support it because the main character was a POC and because this was prominently displayed on the cover. Young Brianna Justice has a plan. She has been working on her goal to be cooking show star and milionaire like her idol Miss Delicious. When Brianna learns that her idol not only attended her school but was president of the Fifth Grade. Thus begins Brianna's campaign, where she will learn about friendships, how power can corrupt and about forgiveness. A w [...]

    2. There is plenty in this book that I found to like. It features an ambitious African American girl who sets no limitations on her future. Those ambitions are not superficial things like being a movie star or pop star, or hoping to marry her favorite movie/pop star. Not only does she have serious entrepreneurial aspirations but also practical plans for how to begin moving towards them. It starts with becoming President of her grade at school. Enter a conniving rival who is willing to stoop as low [...]

    3. Took this out to the elementary schools in May/June 2016.Just wanna add my evidence - you know that myth that nobody wants to read a book with a black person on the cover? Totally totally wrong. I let the kids pick out which books I talk about, and this one was picked a lot. Often by mirror kids, but not always.I started out by asking the kids what job they wanted to have when they grow up, and this was one of my favorite parts of outreach visits this season. I would go around the entire room of [...]

    4. It is aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    5. I was curious about this book because it was on a summer reading list in my town. The text, which includes: presidential trivia, delicious cupcake recipes, and an inspiring message, was a delight to read. Favorite quote "e best recipe for success was one that included all the right ingredients: staying true to yourself, following a plan that makes sense, and trusting the ones you love."

    6. this book is very pleasant i really enjoyed it. It's about Brianna becoming presisdent of the 5th grade, and accomplishing her dream. I reccomend this book to people who like to bake.

    7. This book would be great for elementary and/or middle school readers. It's engaging and fun. The main character, Brianna, and her family are fleshed out really well but the side school characters are a bit one-dimensional, such as Brianna's group of basically interchangeable stock friends. Maybe the author is planning a series where each girl gets her own book in which the reader gets to know her because the book does have that breezy, Baby-Sitters Club feel to me and would serve as a good intro [...]

    8. This book had a very strong female lead and I believe would speak well to the audience it is written for. As a fifth grade teacher I was very excited for this book because there were several areas where fifth graders will be able to relate. Holding the elections and the connections with U.S. History was great and how the author pulled in historical figures and connected it to modern issues and in a way that the elementary audience would understand. Also, as a Michigan native it was great to see [...]

    9. Brianna Justice has had a goal since fourth grade, to become president of her fifth grade class, ever since she heard her hero the famous chef Miss Delicious, was also class president. Brianna also hopes to one day own her own bakery where she can sell her delicious cupcakes. But at the beginning of her fifth grade year, it is decided that the person elected will become president of the whole fifth grade of the entire school and will decide how to spend the grade level's budget. Brianna is even [...]

    10. There are a lot of things about this book that I really liked, most importantly that it had a non-white protagonist as well as supporting characters. That's refreshing. The characters were totally un-stereotyped by gender as well as race, and it just made me feel comfortable with them. I loved the path Brianna took, the lessons she learned, and how creative she was for a fifth grader. I did roll my eyes a bit at the inclusion of recipes, but at least they were relevant to the story (and those cu [...]

    11. i think this book is awesome most enspiering and fascinating book I'm in fifth grade now i read it in 3rd grade I'm a goal reader at my school and this book expired me to be more challenging love,jamya brown write more books

    12. My sixth grader and I enjoyed it. We will read the sequel. I liked that while they were kids, the main character had aspirations of being in business for herself as a baker, rather than the normal little girl dreams of being a singer, dancer, etc. It was also interesting to see author's attempt to weave history lessons into the storyline.

    13. This was a really fun book that Scarlett and I read together. We bought it on a recent trip to BAM. The characters were really funny and we enjoyed the lessons they learned. Our only complaint it that the protagonist was always called by her full name and that was really unrealistic and annoying.

    14. This book is great! Brianna Justice is a great baker and wants to become the President of fifth grade, but she isn't the only one who had high hopes for winning. Great book by Sherri Winston, I would definitely recommend it!

    15. I appreciate the diversity in characters, unfortunately I found the story entirely too predictable. I could, however, still see some of my students enjoying the book so it will definitely be added to the classroom library.

    16. This book gives a fresh and truthful outlook on what growing up is like and what it truly takes to stay true to yourself. I am very harsh when judging books but I love this book

    17. I gave it a three because it wasn't as interesting as I thought it would be. It explained the positions too much rather tell the story.

    18. Miss Lori says this is a wonderful read for 4th grade through 6th grade.It speaks to the issues kids have during their middle school years and teaches a lesson for choices made.

    19. Do you love to bake?Then this book is just for you!It has friendship, teamwork andBAKING!!!!!!Happy Reading!

    20. I really, really liked this book. A diverse set of characters, involved parents, lessons learned, history, catchy chapter titles, presidential trivia, and recipes! What's not to like?Brianna is African American, her friends are a varied bunch. Her nemesisI'm not quite sure. Jasmine, with her extra crinkly hair, could be caucasian or a person of color or multiracial. It's only her hair that is ever really mentioned and that her dad owns the Pistons. Her classmates are varied as well. Brianna live [...]

    21. REVIEWEverything about this book was cute. It was cute that Brianna wanted to be the president of her grade because she wanted to be like her idol, Miss Delicious. By the way, the name Miss Delicious was pretty cute too! It was also cute that some of Brianna’s cupcake and frosting recipes were included. The “Itsy-Bitsy Wild Banana Bites” sound yummy!The story follows Brianna as she campaigns for the title of fifth grade president. She certainly took the campaign too far when she was facing [...]

    22. Adult Reader Reaction: Brianna has a great 'voice' and her feelings / excitement are contagious. Your BFFs until Jasmine Moon enters the picture, and then you're not so sure. I thought the jealousy and competition could have been conveyed without taking it to the level of "mean girls." There are plenty of realistic, humorous, and touching moments that make this fun to read and share.Pros: Preteen girls - with our without big dreams - will see themselves in this realistic story that is "yummy."C [...]

    23. I read this book to see if it was a good gift & appropriate. It was not only a fun appropriate read, it encouraged intelligence, hard work & integrity. I believe any child would benefit from reading this book. Especially if they have big dreams of them do!Brianna along with friends Sara, Beck & Lauren want to be business women. They learn about good money habits & friendship in this "scandalous"(as perceived by 5th grade girls) 5th grade battle for presidency. They also learn the [...]

    24. When I first started in on this book, I abandoned it after a chapter or two. It just didn't seem like it would have any "meat" to it- and I'm a vegetarian! However, I picked it back up, I'm in search of a good book that the kids can relate to about elections, and I found myself sucked into the story. The characters reminded me of some of my former students- particularly the two main characters, Brianna and Jasmine Moon. Hits on themes of loyalty, friendship, bullying, deception, self-confidence, [...]

    25. I didn't particularly care for this book. There were aspects which were cute, but for the most part it felt patronizing and contrived. There were always books I read as a child which felt as if the author was trying to appeal to 'us kids' and not doing it very well. Books that felt as if they were talking down to their target audience. I am not longer a child, but I suspect I would have readily placed this book in that category had I read it when I was one. I will certainly not be recommending i [...]

    26. I really liked this book. I like making, eating, sharing, everything about cupcakes. This story is about a girl named Brianna who wants to be president of the whole school and her three friends, Rebecca (Becks), Lauren, and Sara. During the election, the new girl, Jasmine Moon picks Becks to help her with her campaign stuff. When Becks is helping Jasmine, she slips away from Brianna. Brianna gets really mad, so when Sara and Lauren start hanging out with Jasmine, they slip away from her too. Thi [...]
