A celebration of middle grade literature - and a readathon too!

Thanks to Ms. Yingling Reads, I just found out about Middle Grade March, a month-long celebration of middle grade literature. Since I'm trying to get through my son's Battle of the Books selections, and since I have a few middle grade books for review, I thought I would join in the fun!

The celebration starts with a readathon tomorrow, so I plan to spend some time reading and hope to get through at least two of the books I have in my pile. I started Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai last night, so if I don't finish it tonight, that will be my first book of the readathon. I also have Woods Runner by Gary Paulsen and Zora and Me by Victoria Bond and T.R. Simon on deck. I'm really looking forward to this! I hope you'll join in too!

  1. Thanks for signing up. Glad Ms. Yingling gave the shoutout for that reason and also it is always nice to find new blogs! Hope you enjoyed or are enjoying Inside Out and Back Again. It is a favorite of mine, I just love love the voice, the character and watching her make her way in a world that is so new to her.
