Natalie Aguirre at Literary Rambles also returns this week. She is featuring an interview with June McCrary Jacobs and giving away a copy of June’s MG historical adventure RES-Q TYLER STOP.

June McCrary Jacobs at ‘Reading, Writing, & Stitch-Metic’ features a National Geographic Kids book, 100 Ways to be Thankful.

Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal also makes a return this week with a review of Nowhere Boy by Katherine Marsh, a very compelling Syrian refugee story

A GARDEN OF BOOKS reviews The Heath Cousins and the Moonstone Cave. At the end of the review are some thoughts from an 11-year-old boy about the book.

Rosi Hollinbeck has a review and GIVEAWAY of  ZENOBIA JULY by Lisa Bunker. Rosi also has some not to be missed links for her writing friends.

Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads has another informative MMGM post. Be sure to check out today’s feature and all of Karen’s reviews including her take on THE ECHO PARK CASTAWAYS.

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.
