The Nerdy Book Club ballot is open! It is one of my favorite award list of the year. I love that the books are selected by the Nerdy community. Any list that created by book loving teachers, librarians, authors, illustrators, and other kid lit fanatics is a list I can get behind.
Please go to the Nerdy Book Club and nominate your favorite 2016 books!
Here are the five books that I am going to nominate for Middle Grade Fiction.
Full of Beans
By: Jennifer L. Holm
At some point Ms. Holm may want to consider changing the L to an N: Jennifer N(ewbery) Holm. Everything she creates is awesome.
All Rise For The Honorable Perry T. Cook
By: Leslie Connor
Perry might be my favorite character of 2016. I loved getting to know him.
The Wild Robot
By: Peter Brown
Where was this book when I was 10? Man, I would have loved to have read this book when I was a kid.
By: Kate DiCamillo
Ms. DiCamillo keeps getting better. I’m not sure how that is possible, but it is true. Her work is such a gift to readers.
Ms. Bixby’s Last Day
By: John David Anderson
I wonder how many people cried while reading this book in 2016. I bet it was a lot.
I’d love to know what 2016 middle grade fiction books you loved reading this year.
