I‘m looking for some help Litsy friends. I‘m not really a sports person, but I‘ve worked over the years to add more sports books to my mostly 6th-8th grade class library. Yesterday I had a specific request for books about girls in sports and realized I‘ve got very few books to recommend. So, if you‘ve got great #MiddleGrade suggestions other than the few books shown here, please send them my way!

Daisey @LibrarianRyan You‘ve always got great recs, can you share a few for this topic? 3mo
LibrarianRyan Wow. I‘ll need to look. I can come up with authors but most wrote about boys. Let me see what I can find. Cheer is the only one off the top of my head about cheerleading. 3mo
LibrarianRyan Roller girl, breaking the ice, skating shoes , tumble, love double Dutch, up for air, the distance to home. The girl who threw butterflies, lupe wing won‘t dance, taking up space, #great wall of Lucy Lu, there was a series called Kicks, Ana on the edge, There are just not enough sports books with girls. Ughh 3mo

Sharpeipup There's bound to be one about gymnastics but I cannot think of it right now. 3mo
sblbooks This one is on my TBR. 3mo
CarolynM Not sure if they‘re middle grade (we don‘t divide schools the same way as the US) but there is some good Australian girls sport books around. The Netball Gems series (about netball, obvs) might not be relevant but Ellyse Perry has a soccer one as well as her cricket books 3mo
CarolynM Also Sam Kerr‘s Kicking Goals series is about soccer 3mo
CarolynM This is a good covering all sorts of sports (using Australian women as examples) 3mo
Daisey @LibrarianRyan Thank you, I‘ll be looking these up. Your answer at least made me feel a little better about my very short list. Definitely agree we need more of these! 3mo
Daisey @Sharpeipup @sblbooks Thanks! I‘ll be checking some of these out! 3mo
Daisey @CarolynM Thanks! I‘m not sure how easy a few of these will be for me to find to check out before buying, but I really appreciate another perspective! 3mo
Itchyfeetreader I M not great at ages is this one appropriate? 3mo
Itchyfeetreader This also has female as well as male perspectives. Adult book but pretty accessible although not sure on if there is any profanity in there 3mo
Daisey @Itchyfeetreader Thanks, I‘ll take a look. 3mo

“I hope no #great sorrow ever will come to you, Anne," said Gilbert, who could not connect the idea of sorrow with the vivid, joyous creature beside him, unwitting that those who can soar to the highest heights can also plunge to the deepest depths, and that the natures which enjoy most keenly are those which also suffer most sharply.” #QuotsyJul21

#QuotsyJul21 #great

As a nod to the Beyond Van Gogh immersive art experience I am going to with my friend tomorrow (my first big indoor public event since COVID 😱), I thought I would choose this quote for today‘s “great” prompt.

JamieArc Please update with your experience! I‘ve heard mixed reviews and am debating whether to go to our local one. 2y
DebinHawaii @JamieArc Will do. I was debating too but my friend talked me into it as she really wanted to go. I am more excited about having brunch before we go! 😉🤣 2y
LazyOwl I wanted to go to this as well, but sadly tickets are a bit too price for us at the moment. I hope you enoy 2y
TK-421 Beautiful quote! ❤️💔 A Van Gogh immersive art experience sounds wonderful-so jealous! Hope you have an awesome time 😊 2y

Twelfth Night | William Shakespeare

TheLudicReader I know this is Twelfth Night, but all I hear is Channing Tatum in She‘s the Man, a movie I have watched with my kids many, many times and which always makes me laugh. 2y

Ten Little Niggers | Agatha Christie

I think this book is very interesting and the story is very elaborated... I really don‘t understand why it‘s so underestimated! #AgathaChristie deserves more than this, and this book‘s story ether.
I really recommend this!
