August 2011 Middle Grade Releases

I've been meaning to add this future on Mundie Kids for some time now, but since the Mundie Moms one takes me awhile to do I haven't added it until now. There are some fantastic Middle Grade releases happening this month and I wanted to spot light a few of the ones I'll be featuring on Mundie Kids.

I'll add more titles to the list as the month goes on.

In my quest to find more August MG release other than the ones being featured on the blog, I found it there are very little places who have lists of MG/Picture releases mentioned. I did stumble across this site Kids Reads, who have a feature of upcoming releases that I found useful.
