MMGM for June 29, 2020


Happy 4th of July week!

Throughout the summer months, I’m lending the top spot to one of our frequent contributors. Today the honor goes to Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal. Her blog’s theme is discovering books that are healing for children, especially those with special needs. She joins us almost every week with a great review and on Friday’s her post focuses on books for younger kids. Be sure to follow so you don’t miss any of her features, including today’s.

Click on each blogger’s fireworks to reach their site.

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.
