November Theme: CELEBRATE FAMILY STORIES MONTH!

One of the reasons I love to write middle grade novels is because they're family stories. Which means they aren't good just for ages 8 - 12; most of the time they're good for all ages.

And since November is National Family Stories Month, what better time to throw down a quilt, pop some corn and cozy up the whole household with a book?

Try any of the amazing titles listed here on the sidebar. Or some classics like CHARLOTTE'S WEB, THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, THE BLACK STALLION, LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE...

or perhaps some other 2012 releases like these:

MAY B. by Caroline Starr Rose

WONDER by R.J. Palacio

CHAINED by Lynne Kelly

THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN by Katherine Applegate

ON THE ROAD TO MR. MINEO'S by Barbara  O'Connor

  THE LIONS OF LITTLE ROCK by Kristin Levine

KEEPING SAFE THE STARS by Sheila O'Connor

SEE YOU AT HARRY'S by Jo Knowles

GLORY BE by Augusta Stattergood



Happy reading!

  2. I've just finished May B, Wonder, and The One and Only Ivan. All excellent books. Really awesome. Great post!

    Also, wondering if you have a contact for Stephanie J. Blake? I checked her website but my computer won't pull up her "contact" thingy. I won her wonderful book The Marble Queen recently when I was fortunate enough to win it in a giveaway from The Mixed Up Files. I loved the book and wanted to send her a note to say a huge thank you.
