We're The People: An Inclusive Middle Grade Summer Reading List!
We're The People is a wonderful summer reading initiative from children's lit advocates Edi Campbell, Nathalie Mvondo, Sarah Park Dahlen, Lyn-Miller Lachman, Ebony Elizabeth Thomas, Debbie Reese, and Sujei Lugo. An "inclusive summer reading list", it includes some of my MG favourites like GEEKS, GIRLS, and SECRET IDENTITIES by Mike Jung, Jacqueline Woodson's BROWN GIRL DREAMING, Rita Williams-Garcia's ONE CRAZY SUMMER, N.H. Senzai's SHOOTING KABUL, and MARCH: BOOK ONE from Rep. John Lewis with Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell, among a whole host of others. Looking for some MG reads to add to your summer list?
