MMGM for March 16, 2020



At ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have BLUE SKIES by Anne Bustard, a historical fiction story set in the years following World War II.

June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, and Stitch-Metic has a S.T.E.A.M. feature on Author Temple Grandin’s ‘Calling All Minds:  How to Think and Create Like an Inventor’.

Maria Antonia at Of Books, Photography, and Tea presents a review of All’s Faire in Middle School by Victoria Jamieson.

Patricia Tilton at CHILDREN’S BOOKS HEAL is reviewing I, Cosmo by Carlie Sorosiak.

Rosi Hollinbeck features a review and GIVEAWAY of TIMMY FAILURE MISTAKES WERE MADE by Stephan Pastis. Rosi also has some not to be missed links for her writing friends.

A Garden of Books is back this week with Don’t Check Out This Book by Kate Klise, about the effect a new librarian has on a town and is full of humor, word-play, and puns.

Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads shares another great MG review. Be sure to check out today’s feature along with her post last week about the virus scare with KEEP CALM AND READ ON.

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.
