MMGM for 8/13/18

  Click an image to read each blogger’s post.

Leading the MMGM parade today is June McCrary Jacobs and her family friendly blog—READING WRITING, & STITCH-METIC. She joins us each Monday but also blogs during the week. It might be a non-fiction feature or reviews on picture books through adult fiction. Thanks for the dedication you’ve brought to MMGM. Click on the star for her review of a STEAM Education book entitled, ‘Three-Dimensional Art Adventures’.
This week at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have a review of SPUTNICK’S GUIDE TO LIFE ON EARTH by Frank Cottrell Boyce. This is the fourth and final selection in my summer feature: The Nurturing of Middle Grade Books. 
Andrea Mack at That’s Another Story deals out her thoughts for My Deal With the Universe by Deborah Kerbel.
Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal has a review of The Length of a String by Elissa Brent Weissman—an unusual perspective on adoption.
Completely Full BookShelf is recommending Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper.
Author Rosi Hollinbeck has a REVIEW and GIVEAWAY of 1001+ FANTASTIC FACTS ABOUT ANIMALS. Be a follower and comment to win. It’s easy!
Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads always has an informative MMGM post. Be sure to check out today’s feature and all of her reviews the past week.
If you would like to join in the MMGM fun and get your own spot on the walkway, all you have to do is blog about a middle grade book you love on a Monday (contests, author interviews and whatnot also count–but are most definitely not required) and email me the title of the book you’re featuring and a link to your blog at gpcolo (at) gmail (dot) com
(Make sure you put MMGM or Marvelous Middle Grade Monday in the subject line so it gets sorted accurately–and please don’t forget to say what book you’re featuring)
You MUST email me your link by Sunday evening (11 PM Eastern Time) in order to be included in the list of links for the coming Monday.
Thanks for spreading the middle grade love and for being a part of this awesome tradition begun by Shannon Messenger and carried on here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE! (CLICK HERE FOR PAST MMGM POSTS)
*Please note: these posts are not a reflection of my own opinions on the books featured. Each blogger is responsible for their own MMGM content and I do not pre-screen reviews ahead of time, nor do I control what books they choose. I simply assemble the list based on the links that are emailed to me.

    My son and I both loved Sharon Draper’s OUT OF MY MIND. Great read! Thanks for the awesome round up as usual Greg 🙂

  2. A little slow in the end of summer, eh? Thanks, as always, for doing this.

    • Yes, at least around here school starts today and MG books are the last thing on anyone’s mind–except maybe the Language Arts teacher. I wrote my post a month ago in anticipation of this being a week with little spare time. Thanks for stopping by as always.
