Middle Grade in the NEWS 10/4/18

Here are a few news and special feature articles I’ve enjoyed this week:INTHE NEWS

  1. Praising the benefits of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and how important reading/talking to infants is to later development in Middle Grades.
  2. YA author, Elizabeth Spencer shares her thoughts on what makes a Middle Grade book different from YA. Not your typical response.

The only big news on next week’s post will be Author Donna Galanti as she shares her new cover reveals for THE LIGHTNING ROAD series and a chance for readers to enter a giveaway.

That’s all for now. I’ll be back Friday with a new review.

    Thanks for having me on this week, Greg! And great article on YA vs. MG. I love how she explains that MG is not just sanitized YA but covers different periods in a kid’s life. True for sure!

  2. I love Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library! Heard about it recently. She’s been low-key about her charitable work.

  3. That’s a really good post on the difference between YA and MG. Thanks for the post.
