1. INTHE NEWSAre you looking for a site where you can view all your favorite blog posts in one location? Feedspot does that and much more. I get  daily emails from them with the current lineup of blog posts in children’s literature. You do have to sign up but it’s free. A great time saver!
  2. I recently reviewed the compelling INTO THE CLOUDS, the story of the many attempts to reach the summit of K2. Author Tod Olson has created a super cool scavenger hunt based on the book. It’s engaging and fun for middle grade on up.
  3. Here’s a list of books perfect for our times: 16 of the Best Anti-Racist Books for Middle Grade.

HAPPY 4th!

Blogging about middle grade books or authors next week? Join the celebration:

All you have to do is blog about a middle grade book on a Monday (contests, author interviews, or anything middle grade related also count). Email me the title of the book or feature 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 or author 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.
