Friday's Five

Sometimes a book draws you in and wraps you in a hug. Sometimes a book invites repeated reads.

Here are five middle grade novels I think are darn near perfect:

1) Charlotte's Web by E. B. White.

2) Rules by Cynthia Lord

3) Granny Torrelli Makes Soup by Sharon Creech

4) Swear to Howdy by Wendelin Van Draanen

5) A Crooked Kind of Perfect by Linda Urban

Care to add to the list?
