Leading the MMGM parade on Labor Day is Joanne Fritz at My Brain on Books. She’s an author and a survivor (read more about her here). You’ll find book recommendations and reviews going back to 2009. But that’s not all! There is a handy list of middle grade blogging sites and links for writers. Today she has a review of The Third Mushroom. Click on the MMGM icon to read her post.
Here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have a review of THE MISCALCULATIONS OF LIGHTNING GIRL by Stacy McAnulty, a contemporary story with heart. Click the Labor Day flags to reach my review.
June McCrary Jacobs at ‘Reading, Writing, & Stitch-Metic has STEAM education book by Author Kathy Ceceri entitled, ‘MAKE: Musical Inventions–DIY Instruments to Toot, Tap, Crank, Strum, Pluck and Switch On‘.
Scribbles of an Aspiring Author, Kara Armstrong, reviews To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, by Jenny Han. It’s an upper MG/YA title for ages 12 and up.
Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal is reviewing Seed Savers– Treasure by Sandra Smith. The first book in a futuristic series where growing your own food is illegal.
Author Rebecca Balcárcel is also reviewing THE MISCALCULATIONS OF LIGHTNING GIRL by Stacy McAnulty. I’ll be heading over there to find out if we’re in agreement on this book.
Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads always has an informative MMGM post. Be sure to check out today’s feature and all of her other reviews the past week.
Author Dorine White at The Write Path is featuring a plethora of picture books.
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.
