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?
