Back to School? This week ReaWrite looks at the best middle grade fiction!

Written By: Kellie - Sep• 03•12

It’s that time of year again… back to school! Alas, not for me but this seemed like the perfect week to look back on some of my favorite reads from my school days. This week I’ll be reviewing four of my all time favorite books from growing up, after having reread them this summer. They are all books I first read when I was more or less in the middle grade age bracket but you could probably make cases to put some of these books in higher or lower reading levels. Doesn’t matter, they are still awesome!

The Schedule
Tuesday- The Phantom Tollbooth
Wednesday- Nancy Drew: Secret of the Old Clock
Thursday- Time Cat
Friday-  The Giver

What are your favorite middle grade books? How does a children’s story change for you after going back and reading it years later?

  1. I haven’t heard of Time Cat, so I look forward to your review! Two of my favorite middle reader series are the Bunnicula series by James Howe (I still read those books, especially during Readathons!) and The House With The Clock in Its Walls by John Bellairs. I need to re-read those books, so maybe this October!
