Great new middle grade fiction books for kids
My daughter Emma is a real bookworm. She loves reading SO much that I often have to tell her to stop reading. She loves reading new middle grade fiction that publishers send us. She only writes reviews of her favorites. Here are her top three recent picks.
New Middle Grade Fiction Recommended by My Ten-Year-Old
I read the book School Ship Tobermory by Alexander McCall Smith. It was about two kids who lived on a sumbarine but then they went to the school ship Tobermory. The kids have lots of adventures on the ship. I think that it is cool that they go to a ship for school.
My note: Alexander McCall Smith is best known for his adult fiction series, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. He has also written a series of children’s books about Precious Ramotswe – the protagonist of The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series.
I read the book The Secrets To Ruling School: Class Election by Neil Swab. I found that this book is very funny, and a real page turner. This book is about helping you win the class election, and this book has many tips for you to help you win.
My note: I asked Emma if she thought that the tips in this book would help you win a class election. She says yes.
Emma also has a list of books she read in school this fall that she plans to review for me over break, so watch for that post soon.
