It’s another Monday and time to spotlight some great MG reviews and features.
Click on each blogger’s light switch to get started.
At ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have a review of THE NATURAL GENIUS OF ANTS by Betty Culley.
Carol Baldwin talks about what it means for a writer to find inspiration in her/his “own backyard.” A giveaway is also offered.
Maria Antonia has a post about THE CAPTIVE KINGDOM by Jennifer A. Nielsen.
Valinora Troy reviews UNICORN ISLAND by Donna Galanti. As always she has a cute picture of the featured book and a best friend.
Rosi Hollinbeck takes a look at THE BOOK OF AMAZING TREES. Rosi also shares three links of interest for her writing friends.
Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal features THE VIEW FROM THE VERY BEST HOUSE IN TOWN by Meera Trehan.
Karen Yingling at Mrs. Yingling Reads always has a fantastic MMGM book to share. Be sure to check it out along with her other reviews from last week including Saturday’s look at SMALLER SISTER.
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.
