The stars are like the trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they're watching me.” ― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore . In case you missed it, the @litjoycrate Middle Grade box theme for this month is “ALL SYSTEMS GO” and it’s a mash up of The Martian meets The Goonies with a story about space adventures, friendship, and a crew’s mission to space. . This month’s crate will contain: 📙TWO middle grade reading level books (8-13) 📙A LitJoy EXCLUSIVE activity guide with space activities, recommended reading list, and tips. . 📙Secret space science activity that challenges young creators and brings the books to life. 📙A treat Astronauts love 📙Plus a bonus item that will make you feel like you’re part of the spaceship crew. . This is a quarterly crate, so it comes four times a year, and it’s packed with stuff. The first two crates were excellent, featuring the pictured books, Rules for Thieves and Dragonwatch (as well as two additional paperbacks) and even I loved the items as an adult. . I have loved being a rep for this box, because as you know, I love reading middle grade and sharing books with kids. LitJoy’s team always curates fun, smart, and useful items (the useful part is a big deal to me). . One of my favorite parts of the middle grade crate, all cool items and books aside, is the cool recommended reading list that comes in the activity booklet. I feel like I’m always trying to find good books to recommend to young readers, and they always put together a stellar list. . Can’t wait to see what the ALL SYSTEMS GO box contains! Crates can be purchased until Sept 20, when they ship!
