I am thrilled to share that my guest this week is Ann Braden, author of one of my favorite middle grade novels of the year, The Benefits of Being An Octopus. Hand this book to fans of Wonder, Absolutely Almost, or Out of My Mind. And then if you are a parent, librarian, or educator–get another copy for yourself as well. This is a story that will touch your heart and change your perspective after walking for a bit in 12-year-old Zoey’s shoes.
You can also listen on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts.
I hope you are able to stop by your local library or bookstore to pick up a copy of The Benefits of Being An Octopus!
You can find Ann on her website AnnBradenBooks.com. She is also on social media @AnnBradenBooks. You can find more information on Kids Need Mentors here.
