MMGM for 12/3/18


IMPORTANT DECEMBER MMGM REMINDER: MARVELOUS MIDDLE GRADE MONDAY will be here the next two Mondays— December 10 and 17. On December 24th I’ll have a holiday wish with links to all the bloggers who have participated in MMGM this past year. On December 31st, I’ll reveal my picks for MG’s best in 2018 with a big GIVEAWAY!

MMGM will return to its regular schedule on January 7, 2019 and my second year of hosting. As for today, enjoy a great set of links…

HAPPY DECEMBER!  Here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE, I have a review of THE TURNAWAY GIRLS by Hayley Chewins. Click the snowflake to read all the details and then keep clicking below for more reviews and features.
June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, & Stitch-Metic has a multi-cultural picture book entitled ‘A World of Cookies for Santa‘. The book includes ‘delicious cookie recipes’.
Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal reviews Blended by Sharon M. Draper a book that addresses what it feels like to be a biracial child.
Beth Mitchell at Imaginary Friends has a review of Out of Left Field by Ellen Klages.
Sue Heavenrich at Archimedes Notebook joins us this week with her look at a very cool book—Path to the Stars, My Journey from Girl Scout to Rocket Scientist by Sylvia Acevedo.
Rosi Hollinbeck has a review and GIVEAWAY of The Benefits of Being an Octopus by Ann Braden. Also… Don’t miss Rosi’s links for writers as they’re always helpful.
Andrea Mack at That’s Another Story has the poetic Missing Mike by Shari Green.
Michael Gettel-Gilmartin at Middle Grade Mafioso features Jenna Gavigan’s sweet theatrical story, LULU–THE BROADWAY MOUSE.
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.
If you would like to join in the MMGM fun and get your own spot in the parade, 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.
