Lovely article and great idea for a book. The right word is so important.

What a great and needed topic! I've spent some time reminding my son that he can still call or text the people he can't see.

Hi, Everyone,
As some of you may know, my day job is being a psychologist. My last two books were for parents, so I haven't been on for awhile, but I'm thrilled to announce that the publisher of my previous children's book (Growing Friendships: A Kids' Guide to Making and Keeping Friends, published by Beyond Words/Simon & Schuster) just released a funny, useful, and +FREE+ ebook that my co-author and I wrote called,

Growing Friendships During the Coronavirus Pandemic:
A Kids' Guide to Staying Close to Friends While Being Apart.

(for ages 6-12)

Anyone can download a copy at www.CoronavirusFriendship.com OR
https://eileenkennedymoore.com/growing-friendships-during-the-coronavirus-pandemic/

If you like it, I hope you will share this widely. It's a labor of love for lonely, anxious, and frustrated children.

Warm wishes,
Eileen

Book Talk / Re: Suggestions for *recent* MG reading list
« Last post by Barbara Etlin on June 17, 2020, 01:07 PM »
Hi, Jerry and Nancy and other MG readers. I'm still checking this, so thanks for any suggestions.

Out of last year's suggestions, I read and really enjoyed THE DRAGON WITH A CHOCOLATE HEART, VINCENT AND THEO (really a YA non-fiction, not a MG novel, but still very interesting),  and TROUBLE AT THE SCRIPTORIUM.

The purpose of my reading list is for to keep up-to-date on current middle-grade novels, which is what I write. My taste is very personal, subjective and quirky.

Oh, I have two to recommend:
OWL'S OUTSTANDING DONUTS by Robin Yardi.  Funny contemporary MG with an owl who is obsessed with donuts and a kid who solves an ecological mystery with his help.  :owl

Robin also wrote another funny MG with talking animals, THE MIDNIGHT WAR OF MATEO  MARTINEZ , which features contemporary knights and talking skunks.

Trine-
I didn't even think of the bankruptcy issue.  Thanks for pointing that out.   It'll be interesting, then, to see if I get any response at all.

I sold an article to them several years ago. It was a great experience and they paid VERY well. I also received a couple of royalties for reprints.
But, since they are the Boy Scouts, and with all of their troubles and filing bankruptcy, I wonder if they will continue to publish the magazine. I hope they will.
Good Luck.
