MIDDLE GRADE in the NEWS 7/12/18

Here are a few news and special feature articles I’ve enjoyed recently (If you missed any of the previous posts click here to see them all):

  1. Are you having trouble getting your kids to read this summer. Here’s some advice with a surprising place to start—the bathroom!
  2. I have more of a shout out here than news. I’m Your Neighbor is a site that lets you browse books to help experience different settings, communities, and themes. Understanding of others and discussion is the key. The database grows every time I visit. Great job! (Once there click on THE BOOK LIST tab to get started)
  3. Kids want to read books about immigration. The publishing industry has responded with books that put a human face on the refugee crisis.

I’ll be back on Friday with a new post promoting past MG titles we often forget.
