It’s been an interesting 2019 so far – and a fast-moving one. I cannot believe it’s already time to usher in March! Did I mention March is one of my favorite months of the year? It carries with it the promise of Spring, bushels of tulips, and the birthdays of some of my very favorite people (plus my own).
And it’s bringing in a whirlwind of new Middle Grade books.
This week, I’m over at the From the Mixed-Up Files of Middle Grade Authors with a list of March New Releases designed to fill all of your reading needs on the blustery and the sunshiney days March is sure to be full of. Check the post out, then head back over here and let me know what you think of this year’s March New Releases.
It’s Presidents Day, and I’m over at the From The Mixed-Up Files of Middle-Grade Authors blog talking with my writing friends about middle grade characters who would make great presidents. One of them even suggested Kit for president!
I was too shy to put it on the list over there, but I’ll share it with you all here.
Kit Donovan (From The Tragically True Adventures of Kit Donovan by Patricia Bailey). Kit is fearless! She stands up to bullies, she fights for justice, and she doesn’t quit. Kit would be an amazing president!
—Janet Sumner Johnson, Author of THE LAST GREAT ADVENTURE OF THE THE PB and J SOCIETY.
Read the rest of my post – Charlotte For President!! – over at From the Mixed-Up Files of Middle Grade Authors and nominate your favorite Middle Grade Character!
And, Happy Presidents Day!
If you hang out with me on social media you know I’ve been busy writing posts for the From The Mixed Up Files of Middle Grade Authors blog the last few weeks. (If you’re not hanging out with me, please, come on over and connect). It’s always fun to see my posts up on other sites, and even more fun to share them again on mine. With that in mind, I thought I’d do a little round up here on the blog in case you missed them.
The first post involved me nerding out to space exploration and Elon Musk’s roadster. It includes a list of space-themed middle grade books you’ll want to add to your want to read list.
The second post was a simple book list, filled with (nearly) all the new middle grade books coming out in March. (And there’s a lot. My to-read pile is seriously out of control). Here’s the list.
Thanks for reading. And be sure to visit From the Mixed Up Files of Middle Grade Authors. There’s a ton of great stuff for teachers, librarians, kids, and writers over there.
