We’re in the heart of the iLoveMG initiative.
A translation: iLoveMG represents a push by Workman Publishers to increase attention and interest in middle grade reading.
Although cynics might snicker at devoting an entire campaign to this niche, grades 3-6 are key in determining what kind of reader children will become. During these years, students discover favorite authors, genres and series. Kids begin to truly read independently.
It’s worth looking past the promotional talk to recognize the importance of the issue.
