Back to Books Giveaway Hop: MG Fun!

Sher A Hart here, with the Back to the Books Giveaway Hop hosted by I am a reader not a writer and co-hosted by Buried in Books. I had a change in plans when I decided the book I was going to feature wasn’t suitable for most teens even though it takes place in high school. But with a huge thanks to Karen at Media Masters Publicity, I have three awesome choices, two that truly fit the back to school theme and one with some spooky fun. All three will keep young teens engrossed in healthy reading, and it’s winner’s choice of which book he or she gets (shipped by the publisher). So here we go for some  middle grade book fun!

5000 Awesome Facts About Everything!

Who knew that there were so many sweet things to learn about chocolate or that a dozen delicious details about peanut butter would show up on a page with a few splotches of jelly to whet our appetites? Find out in the pages of “National Geographic Kids 5000 Awesome Facts About Everything.” Keep turning and a terrifyingly toothy shark tells you all about himself, while other spreads lay out tons of tips on toys and games, mysteries of history, robots and reptiles, sports and spies, wacky words, and so much more!

A visual feast of colorful photographs surrounded by swirling, tipping, expanding, and climbing bits of information in a high-energy design, this book will satisfy both the casual browser and the truly fact obsessed. Take a minute to watch the trailer!

Next up, we have two fiction books:

Big Nate Makes the Grade

(Graphic novel)

Nate Wright is known to his pals and teachers for many things, his penchant for mischief and his school record for detentions being the foremost. But beating out brainiac Gina’s grades is not one of those things! In Big Nate Makes the Grade, the school life goings-on of Nate, his pals, and his long-suffering teachers are recounted in hilarious detail.

or Treasure in the Graveyard

Treasure and pirates and ghosts, oh my! When Echo discovers someone has been digging up the Fogville cemetery in search of missing buried treasure he needs his new friends, the Bat Pack, to help him get to the bottom of this spooky mystery.
