For Kids

This is the place to be if you’re a kid who loves to eat, I mean read awesome middle-grade books. If you used to be a kid and haven’t forgotten, you can come, too. Just don’t get all “cross-your-t’s” with us. We’re having fun!

The For Kids pages aren’t full of vitamins and minerals but they are packed full of crafts, puzzles, games and other book-related fun. There’s also homework help and ideas to help future authors get a jump on their next great idea.

Check back often and tell others. When the library is closed, I’ll be busy scouring the shelves for new ideas to share with my friends here on The Mixed-Up Files. That way I won’t be at risk of being swept up by the night custodian. I may look like a dust bunny, but don’t be mistaken. I’m M.G. and I devour books. Come eat, I mean read some delicious morsels with me!
