MMGM for 12/17/18


Today is the final MMGM post for 2018. MMGM will return on January 7, 2019 for my second year of hosting.

I’ll still be here the rest of the month. December 24th is devoted to my holiday wish to all the bloggers who have participated in MMGM the past year. On December 31st, I’ll reveal my picks for MG’s best in 2018 with a big GIVEAWAY!

Here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE, I have a review of LOUISIANA’S WAY HOME by Kate DiCamillo. Click the package to read all the details and then keep unwrapping below to open up more reviews and features.
Sue Heavenrich at Archimedes Notebook has a review of  Explorer Academy: The Nebula Secret, by Trudi Trueit.
June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, & Stitch-Metic has the historical Christmas book, ‘The Story of Holly & Ivy’. It has an element of fantasy and appeals to all ages.
Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal features Speechless by Adam P. Schmitt, and important story about mental illness with a lot of humor woven into the story.
Rosi Hollinbeck has a review of The Vanderbeekers and the Hidden Garden by Karina Yan Glaser. Don’t miss her links for writers. Some real gems in there this week.
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.
