This meme was recently started by Rae Longest at Powerful Women Readers. As I am a grandmother, who loves to read to her children, and a retired teacher librarian, this meme really attracted me. If you love children’s books, or have a favourite from your childhood, join us in introducing them to a new generation of readers. Feel free to use my logo above, but link back to my post as well.

My plan is to highlight a book, a series or an author that I think children will love. These will not be new books, they will be books that I have recommended to parents or kids, or books that I have bought for my own children or grandchildren. There are so many wonderful books from the past that today’s children will love. Last week I highlighted books for early readers, so today will highlight a series that my son loved me to read to him. Here goes.

Matthew and the Midnight ….. by Allen Morgan, Illustrated by Michael Martchenko

There are several books in this series but we only had these three. I read these over and over to my children, especially my son. They are right up there with Robert Munsch books for their favourites growing up. Click on the cover to go to the Goodreads entry. So much fun and the Midnight Turkeys would fit right in with Thanksgiving coming up. They are now being enjoyed by my grandchildren.
