Newbery Awards Challenge

hosted by Jennifer of Between the Lines
October 1, 2009 to September 30, 2010

Challenge: read 12 Newbery Award Winners or Honors

According to Wikipedia:
The John Newbery Medal is a literary award given by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association (ALA). The award is given to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. The award has been given since 1922. It was the first children's literary award in the world.[1] It is named for John Newbery, an 18th century English publisher of juvenile books. The Newbery Medal was designed by Rene Paul Chambellan and created by Frederic G. Melcher in 1921. It depicts on the obverse an author giving his work (a book) to a boy and a girl to read.
