Middle grade literature (books published for ages 8-12) has really exploded in the last couple of years. Especially when it comes to publishing diverse voices, and even tackling difficult issues. It's a great way to introduce kids to books that a little more difficult, but they're not quite read for teen books yet. You'll find some fantastic books in the children's section of the library. For kids and adults alike!
Since February is Black History Month, here are some of the newer Black voices in middle grade you should check out this month and all year long!
