Best of the Middle Grade Blogs: March 4

Happy Dr. Seuss birthday week (or at least happened this week). I love that the schools celebrate this day. And I love the kids that dress in the full Cat in the Hat garb. While it isn't MG, my favorite Seuss is My Many Colored Days. So simple, so beautiful. I love the black day, I always scare my kids when I howl & growl at every cloud. Today is definitely a yellow day.

What's your favorite Seuss?

Industry & Inspiration

In a completely non-MG sidebar: is anyone else following Charlie Sheen on twitter? The man is crazy. A sincere train wreck. But I'm addicted. I don't really follow celebs but my husband hooked me on the tiger blood. Winning.


  1. Seuss's ABC book is still my favorite. I loved it as a kid and I still have it memorized. In fact, my beat up original that I read from as a toddler is the same one my kids learned the ABCs with :)

  2. HORTON HATCHES THE EGG is my favorite. Thanks for all the fun links!

  3.'s hard to say which Seuss is my favorite. Maybe the Sneetches. We have a large collection of Dr. Seuss, but the ones I ended up reading the most were Green Eggs and Ham and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. MY 11-year-old still sometimes gets those out and reads them.

    Great links! I love places that collect great articles to read about middle grade writing. Thanks for the mention!
