MMGM for February 24,2020

          

HAPPY LEAP YEAR WEEK! THE EXTRA DAY OCCURS ON SATURDAY. CELEBRATE BY LEAPING INTO THESE GREAT REVIEWS:

At ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have WE COULD BE HEROES by Margaret Finnegan and a GIVEAWAY of the book—my favorite MG realistic fiction so far this year!

June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, and Stitch-Metic has a ‘classic fiction’ feature of an adaptation of  the 1938 short story, Lassie Come-Home, written by Rosemary Wells.

Joanne Fritz at My Brain on Books joins us again this week. She’s celebrating Black History Month with Ray Anthony Shepard’s NOW OR NEVER!

Maria Antonia at Of Books, Photography, and Tea reviews It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel by Firoozeh Dumas.

Alex Baugh at Randomly Reading also gives a shout out to WE COULD BE HEROES by Margaret Finnegan.

Rosi Hollinbeck is still laughing out loud at Homerooms & Hall Passes by Tom O’Donnell. Included are a review and GIVEAWAY . Rosi also has some not to be missed links for her writing friends.

A Garden of Books features Lizard’s Tale by Weng Wai Chan.  It’s set in pre-WWII Singapore where a boy named Lizard finds himself entangled in the world of spies over a codebook.

Patricia Tilton at CHILDREN’S BOOKS HEAL reviews The Runaways by Ulf Stark.

Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads has another fantastic MMGM post. Be sure to check out today’s feature and all of her reviews the past week including THAT’S WHAT FRIENDS DO.

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.
