MMGM for April 20, 2020



Many of the recommendations below may have first come from that special guardian of the books. Thank you to all the librarians and support staff. You inspire those you serve!

At ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have a review of AGATHA ODDLY—MURDER AT THE MUSEUM. Click on the green book to learn all about it then do the same for the other selections below.

Natalie Aguirre at Literary Rambles has a guest post by debut author Loriel Ryon and her agent Kristy Hunter, a giveaway of Loriel’s MG magical realism INTO THE TALL, TALL GRASS and a query critique by Kristy.

Sue Heavenrich at Archimedes Notebook has a non-fiction selection with Rachel Carson and Ecology for Kids, by Rowena Rae.

June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, and Stitch-Metic celebrates the upcoming Earth Day (4/22) and Arbor Day (4/24). She’ll share link packs for educational activities for kids and families to participate in from home.

Maria Antonia at Of Books, Photography, and Tea gives us a few thoughts on The Vanderbeekers to the Rescue by Karina Yan Glaser (Book #3)

COMPLETELY FULL BOOKSHELF is recommending The List of Things That Will Not Change by Rebecca Stead.

Jenni Enzor  goes way back to a series known as the Betsy-Tacy books by Maud Hart Lovelace. It’s a celebration of the author’s birth on April 25th.

Patricia Tilton at CHILDREN’S BOOKS HEAL reviews Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made by Stephan Pastis with a Giveaway.

Rosi Hollinbeck features a non-fiction title, Spies, Lies, & Disguise: The Daring Tricks and Deeds that Won World War II. Rosi also has some not to be missed links for her writing friends.

THE COMFY READER has an MG ARC REVIEW of The Witches of Willow Cove by Josh Roberts.

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 LOUDER THAN WORDS.

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.
