MMGM for March 23, 2020


It’s Springtime. A time to SPRING into some great reviews and features. Click on each Spring logo to see what’s offered.

At ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have IN THE RED by Christopher Swiedler.

June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, and Stitch-Metic has a Retro Fiction Feature spotlighting Marguerite Henry’s Newberry Honor Book from 1947, ‘Misty of Chincoteague’.

Alex Baugh at Randomly Reading gives us her view on Indian No More by Charlene Willing McManis with Traci Sorell.

Completely Full Bookshelf is back this week and recommends New Kid by Jerry Craft.

Maria Antonia at Of Books, Photography, and Tea has Just My Luck by Cammie McGovern.

Patricia Tilton at CHILDREN’S BOOKS HEAL has a review of Weird Little Robots by Carolyn Crimi.

Rosi Hollinbeck features a review of HURRICANE SEASON by Nicole Melleby. Rosi also has some not to be missed links for her writing friends.

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 WHAT STARS ARE MADE OF.

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.

    Wow – these look great! I didn’t get my link to you but on my blog today I’m featuring: All the Greys on Greene Street.

  2. Stead is never a slam dunk for me the way it is for many teachers. This one seemed a bit young, somehow.
