I recently shared a list of books that I wanted her to read in grade six and even though the summer has just begun, she’s digging into that stack already! Let me know in the comments if you have some recommendations for her for future reads!     MIDDLE GRADE BOOKS MY TEN YEAR OLD RECENTLY READ   It can definitely be hard to keep up with good book recommendations for her, so if you…
