Newbery Medal Award Winners, 1922-present

16 Jan

I didn’t notice that Newbery was only spelled with one “r” until one of my fourth graders pointed it out to me last year… Books I’ve read are marked with an asterisk (*), favorites are marked with a heart (♥) at the end. I’ve read a number of them recently with my students, so I’ll link to reviews of those once I’ve posted them.
