With kids going back to school this week, I felt it only right to lend my paw in encouraging the wee little ones with some fascinating reading. Thank goodness, though, From the Mixed Up Files...of Middle-Grade Authors did it for me. Check out the blog's article pertaining to great dog literature for your middle schooler, and don't be surprised when Old Yeller and Where The Red Fern Growns don't make the list. No dead dogs allowed!
