I read a book to earn this badge: 
Nothing's Fair in Fifth Grade

Nothing's fair in fifth grade by Barthe DeClements









New girl Elsie Edwards is overweight and on a strict diet. She also has a penchant for getting herself into trouble in the classroom, and a strict mom who's ready to send Elsie to boarding school. With the help of some new friends Elsie makes, things slowly begin to look up, both with Elsie's health and her family issues. Life might not always be fair for a fifth-grader, but things do get better. I loved this book when I was young, and I still love it just as much today!

Read a Fantastic Book about the Civil War

I read a book to earn this badge: 
Two Miserable Presidents by Steve Sheinkin

Two miserable presidents: everything your schoolbooks didn't tell you about the Civil War by Steve Sheinkin ; illustrated by Tim Robinson — Seriously, put this book on hold, because you'll want it as soon as I return it. Loved this book about the Civil War (we're still in the midst of its 150th anniversary, by the way). Sheinkin manages to hit all the high points I remember learning about, while also filling in much more interesting details. He adds personal information about the more famous folks involved in the war in addition to telling stories about ordinary people. I'm really digging this author, who also wrote Bomb, The Notorious Benedict Arnold, and others (seriously - none of these should show available in the library catalog - check them out now).
