Teachers: MUST HAVE IN EVERY CLASSROOM. 
Students: are you a part of a blended family? Stepparents and parents? Do you ever feel like you don’t belong, or that you’re constantly being split in half? Do you go to your moms one week, then dads, or every other weekend? Do you just feel tired of it all? THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU! Remember you are loved, so very loved, as you read Izzy’s story. •
•
Izzy has a lot of stress as a young girl. Her two biggest worries: not having a “home” because she switches every week. Constantly asking herself is she black, or white since her Daddy is black and her Mom is white, she’s having a hard time maneuvering who she is. Read to find out how she discovers just who she is and how important that girl truly is. 💕❤️

What took me so long to meet Rip and Red?! I just started the first book, A Whole New Ballgame and I’m hooked! .
.
I am going to be Skyping with author @philbildner for #WRAD19 and I’m so excited for my fifth graders to hear from him!
.

This is a series and the two main characters are just fantastic. Smart, kind and are true friends! I’ve met their out-of-the-box teacher, Mr. Acevedo and I have enjoyed his teaching style and he values reading!! .

I’m dreadfully boring when it comes to biscuits. The plainer the better in my opinion
My twin sister calls them ‘old women’ biscuits as she’s worked in an old people’s home and that’s what they got served 😂

“We were in plain sight. But we were invisible."
.
〰️
〰️
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5 for THE BRIDGE HOME by #padmavenkatraman, which I received in exchange for an honest review and to share with #kidlitexchange. 
I'm so grateful to get my hands on this book early because I've been hearing such amazing things about #thebridgehome, which is ultimately about the vulnerability, but also the resilience of children. 
In addition to being beautifully written and about an important subject matter that will offer a window into the world of homelessness in India, this book is impossible to put down. .
〰️
〰️
I loved how it was written in second person as a letter from Viji to her beloved, disabled sister Rukku. 
I loved how Viji, Rukku, Muthi and Arul made their own beautiful family and looked out for one another.
I loved seeing Rukku grow and change as she was finally given the opportunity to contribute her own special gifts to her family. .
〰️
〰️
How can such a slim novel pack so much power? I will be thinking about this one for a long time.
Issues addressed include abusive relationships, child labor, modern slavery, disability, poverty and homelessness. .
〰️
〰️
I plan to read this one aloud in my lunch bunch next spring and I anticipate kids are going to love it. The Bridge Home is an absolute must-buy for all elementary and middle school libraries. Don't miss it!

One of my favourite ways to start a work day is arriving early so I can enjoy a cup of tea and some time to read before the library opens. #IreadMG #mglit #mgbooks #middlegradebooks #middlegradefiction #middlegradereads #mgfiction #kidlit #booksforkids #theneverendingstack
I'm obsessed with how @fayehallidayart lets nature colour her drawings – that's the inspiration behind the art supporting today's quote of the week from “Tedenbarr of Have Lath!” Happy Monday!

We’ve given our kids a “snow day” break from school so they’ll likely spend most of the morning sledding. In the meantime, I’ve got the house to myself and I have just about thirty pages left on this read-through of my manuscript. Once I finish I’ll have some significant rewriting to do and I hope to start that today just to keep a sense of momentum going. I have a feeling I’ll tend to drag my feet on the rewriting for this stage, so I’ve made an appointment with myself for 5:00 a.m. through the end of December.

What are you working on this month?

My trusty MacBook Air recharges after another day of slaying. Beneath lay the pages of the third draft editorial letter for Summer and July, which is nearly ready to turn in. 28 months after it was begun, I am still writing new words that are making me cry. But I am eager to release it and turn to wrapping up the first draft of Thirty Parks. #mglit #bookstagram #authorsofinstagram #harpercollins #SummerAndJuly

THE GRAVEYARD BOOK by @neilhimself is just incredible. I never would have guessed a story with such a macabre title would grab my heart, but it did!

The Magic Misfits: The Second Story by Neil Patrick Harris is the second book in the series, and it was just as magical as the first. The characters are diverse and relatable. I love how Harris focuses on the themes of friendship and family. Throughout this book, the reader is reminded that family is more than blood; it's also the people you choose to love (like your friends). The book also deals with themes of abandonment as two of the characters are orphans. The book is witty and full of adventure and puzzles. The best part is that Harris has hidden puzzles throughout the book for the reader to solve. This is a fun middle grade book that is perfect for lovers of magic and puzzles.

Its been snowing all day and will continue into the night which means we’re prepping for early morning sledding on the hill next to our house. My prep consists of whipping up a gallon of spiced apple cider. It’s super-easy, makes the house smell amazing, and my kids love it. It’s delicious hot and makes an excellent mocktail if you’re so inclined. Recipe in my stories.
🍏
Now it’s time to pretend that I’m snowbound in a well-provisioned, well-insulated cabin and write for the next hour! 🤓

Chris Barton and Jennifer Ziegler might be the coolest TEXAN author-couple I’ve ever met, but seeing them together at #NCTE18 was rare! I loved meeting and chatting with them both! 🎄⭐️🎁 And if you need gift ideas for the kids in your life, Jennifer wrote a fantastic MG series about triplets+shenanigans (REVENGE OF THE FLOWER GIRLS is the first in the series)!
Chris has written a plethora of picture books, my favorites being MIGHTY TRUCK, WHOOSH, and WHAT DO YOU DO WITH A VOICE LIKE THAT? 
Just go to your local bookstore and buy them all! 😉 #iteachthird #ilovekidlit #picturebooks #MGlit #coolpeoplewritebooksforkids

I’ve gotten way behind on writing about books I’ve read, so I’m posting this as a preview, and a reminder for myself! Two of these were audiobooks (fantastic), three were ARCs, and one was a treat I bought myself a while back and hadn’t read yet! I’ll try to post my responses to these books by the end of the week! #goalsetting #mglit #middlegradebooks #ilovereading

It’s been a wonderful time watching Joey play #mufasa in #lionking 🦁 and what a great finale yesterday! I’m such a #theatermom and helped with painting and costumes and my other son helped build the sets. The grasses are from our palm trees 🌴 too! Such joy watching the story come alive. Thanks to everyone who made it a special play!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 THE REMARKABLE JOURNEY OF COYOTE SUNRISE by Dan Gemeinhart. This truly is a remarkable story of coping with grief and loss, finding your voice, making human connections, and how far we humans will really go for those that we love. Coyote is a funny and likable character who tells the story with an honest but compassionate voice,  At the beginning, it seems she is being too accommodating of her dad's quirky lifestyle and “no-go's,” but we soon see how she has tried to meet her own needs, in small ways, in the spaces around her dad's very big needs - namely, his avoidance of going back home and dealing with his grief head-on. There are so many questions as we start the journey with Coyote, but soon we are swept up in the action as she works to carry out a plan, and gains some companions along the way. Coyote's own story unfolds like an onion, layer by layer, throughout each leg of the journey, and we learn more about the pain that has led her and her dad to this wandering life.  Coyote has to make some mature decisions and realizations in order to eventually speak up for herself and her own needs, but it is beautiful when she does.  No spoilers, but readers can expect to laugh and cry throughout this book. It's definitely going on my shelf and will stay in my heart.  I’ve already recommended it to adults and kids - 3rd and up, depending on the 3rd grader.  Grief, loss, and pain are inevitable in life, and there are as many ways to cope as there are humans. This story sensitively explores a 12-year-old girl's discovery that her dad's way of coping is not working for her, that she can and should speak up for herself and her need to face her grief in her own way.  I think this is a powerful message for young and older readers alike.  The side stories, featuring the people that join their journey, also have positive  messages of acceptance, love, family - all of which help Coyote figure out pieces of her own puzzle. Get ready for a remarkable journey, characters you will love, and a story you will never forget.

This debut from @melaniesumrow was really, really good. I couldn’t put it down and was completely immersed in this world. ⁣
⁣
Gentry lives in a polygamous community in New Mexico and is supposed to “keep sweet” and avoid anything “evil” from the outside world - the world beyond her guarded community of Watchful. This means even giving up doing what she loves most, playing the violin. Playing the violin, along with swimming and fishing, are all ways the devil can get to you, according to the Prophet (who is in prison but calls frequently with revelations from God).⁣
⁣
Gentry tries to be obedient and “keep sweet” but she knows deep down that something isn’t right. Then the Prophet has a revelation that puts Gentry’s family in danger. What happens when Gentry starts to question this way of life is when things start to get really interesting... can she get away?

I have a dream where the train is flying through blue skies ...
... and there flying next to us is an enormous bird.
It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
Each feather sheathes itself perfectly into the next as the wings expand and contract in the wind
...

I want to believe.
I want to believe something so beautiful could exist outside my dreams

Space Boy is a stunning story about a Mining family who live in deep space, till the father looses his job in the mines.
The family (mother, father and daughter Amy) are then sent to live on earth. They are transported thirty years into the future by cryogenic freezing so earth ages but they don’t.
The story then starts with Amy trying to come to terms with loosing her best friend from space and having to live in a world ‘Earth’ where it’s progressed by 30years.
Stephen McCranie writes with such beautiful #proses that I can not recommend volume one highly enough along with the gorgeous illustrations makes it a perfect start to a series

One of the perks of reviewing books and being a long term middle grade librarian substitute is not only giving books to teachers & the library, but also directly to kids. I had some very excited readers who each took home a copy of their choice from these books. They were so excited! To me, that is what makes doing all this worth it. These MG titles are extremely popular in our library.

Thank you @disneybooks @marvel @penguinkids @harperkid for sending these! I may not have reviewed all these titles, but these books are already being read by the kids who received them. Their happiness over getting a new book was priceless. .

When Hurricane Sandy hit, we lost power and water for a week.  That meant no elevator to the 27th floor on which we lived, and no showers or flushing toilets. Um, gross.  Needless to say, we were displaced for that time.
😕
But Lilybelle (Lily to most), the protagonist in this 🎵awesome🎵 book, knows what that feels like, and then some. When Hurricane Sandy hits, she's with her grandmother Collette in a nursing home, which actually floods and is soon evacuated by the National Guard.  Her grandmother, who is quite old and beginning to lose her memory, often says things that don't make sense, and Lily has learned to be patient with her.  So when she gives Lily a very special pen and tells her she is entrusting it to her care, Lily carefully puts it away, even though she doesn't understand its importance.  But in the excitement of the evacuation, the worst thing happens:  she loses it.
😨
Lily frantically searches for the pen everywhere, and in doing so, she begins to discover a whole world about her grandmother that she never knew.  And she begins to realize that maybe her grandmother's ramblings weren't so random after all.  It turns out her grandmother was actually a member of the French Resistance during World War II.  What!? Lily can hardly believe that her frail grandmother once dressed like a boy in order to pass messages and packages to other resistance members.
💪
Told in alternating viewpoints of Lily and Collette as a child, this book was fascinating and so enjoyable.  Plus I loved Lily's character.  With mystery, excitement, and two very unique settings, I flew through it and I think any middle grader would, too.  It is so good, and as I mentioned in my stories a while ago, I loved the last line.
