Have you read a good book lately? There are more great books than I can possibly read, so I need your help spreading the word. If you'd like to write a short (500 word max) guest review, email me at mlbrown90 @ att. net . OR, I'd really love to have you video yourself reviewing the awesome book you choose. Just please be sure the book is appropriate for 5th through 8th graders.

You do not have to be a kid to guest blog. In fact, look for LIBRARY LISA, one of my favorite children's librarians, coming to this blog soon! She is a reading machine!

I'm currently reading THE GREAT HAMSTER MASSACRE by Katie Davies. What are you reading? Hmmm?


  1. I'm looking for a good read aloud to open next school year. Loved - JEREMY THATCHER DRAGON HATCHER by Bruce Colville. Staring TOUCH BLUE by Cynthia Lord. I adore RULES by her. Opened this year with WHALES ON STILTS by M.T. Anderson. Turned the whole class into Andersonites.

  2. My TBR pile just grew! WHALES ON STILTS has been in my stack, can't wait to dive in. It just looks hilarious! Thanks for the great recx, Leslie!

  3. Just finished two MG winners this week. TOUCH BLUE by Cynthia Lord and JEREMY THATCHER DRAGON HATCHER by Bruce Coville. I'm looking for a good read-aloud to open the next school year and light the reading fire in the kids.
