Disability Pride should be every day πŸ’•

Part 1 (which you can read here) was all about YA books with disability rep, and part 2 is putting the spotlight on middle grade! Middle grade (MG) is the age category typically geared toward readers between ages eight and twelve, but it can also be read and enjoyed by people of all ages.

All of which makes me suspect that the discussions of disability that take place in MG books will be some of the profoundest out there.

I can’t wait to share all my thoughts on my recent reads in my July wrap-up 😊

But today, I’m back with a specific recommendations post in honor of Disability Pride Month!
