One more blogger link came in today. It’s from Faith Hough at Life’s an Art. She has a great piece on A RACE AROUND THE WORLD. Check it out here.

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.

  1. Thanks, Greg! I’ve been doing a lot of non-fiction reading the past few months, but am so excited to jump into more MG–as always, this is where I look first for good recommendations. 🙂
    I totally forgot to send my email yesterday with the link (pregnancy brain, maybe??), but if anyone’s interested, I reviewed Caroline Starr Rose’s newest book, A RACE AROUND THE WORLD (an excellent picture book to share with middle grade readers!) on my blog today:
