First Reading List for 2011 Newbery Discussion

This is the first of the "short lists" we will prepare for this year's Mock Newbery Program at the Allen County Public Library. Basically, this means that while we will continue to highlight and discuss a wide variety of children's books on our blog -- and we encourage comments on all of them -- the books on this first list are destined to be 'brought to the table' to be discussed in more depth at our Mock Newbery Discussion and Election on December 11, 2010.
  1. Alchemy and Meggy Swann by Karen Cushman
  2. Best Friends Forever by Beverly Patt
  3. Countdown by Deborah Wiles
  4. Dreamer by Pam Munoz Ryan and Peter Sis
  5. Keeper by Kathi Appelt
  6. Million Shades of Gray by Cynthia Kadohata
  7. Mirror Mirror - A Book of Reversible Verse by Marilyn Singer
  8. Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine
  9. Nest for Celeste by Henry Cole
  10. One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia
  11. Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper
  12. Water Seeker by Kimberly Willis Holt
  13. Woods Runner by Gary Paulsen
We welcome continued online discussion through this blog and invite you to register for our "in person" discussion to be held on December 11, 2010 at our Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
