Students who accept the challenge need to read at least 5 of the books on Ms. J.'s list by February 2nd in order to be entered in the raffle.
On February 2nd we will meet in the library for:
- vote on the best book
- raffle off a gift certificate to Wellesley Books
The actual, official winner of the Newbery Award will be announced the morning of February 2nd and so we will have a chance to discuss if we think that was "the most distinguished contribution to children's literature" for 2014.
Flora & Ulysses by Cate DiCamillo won the Newbery Award last year.
Want to see which books have won in the past? Here is a link to the ALA website with the official list: Newbery Medal and Honor Winners from 1922 to present
Some of my favorite books of all time have been Newbery Honor winners... those Honor books are worth checking out!
