Marvelous Middle Grade Monday

Designed by Deb Marshall
I love participating in Marvelous Middle Grade Monday. Middle grade books can be enjoyed by so many from young children just beginning to read all the way up to adults.  As I have started reading more and more middle grade books, I've found that I enjoy reading them more than most adult or even young adult books.
For the history of Marvelous Middle Grade Monday and how to participate (which is very easy), check out creator Shannon Messenger's blog post about its origin.

And as always, be sure to check out the other MMGM bloggers on my list to the right.
