John Newbery Medal Month
Students took the challenge of reading Newbery Medal and Honor books this month. Some students even read a more recent Newbery and an older Newbery to do a compare/contrast.
Students were pleasantly surprised to go through the list and see how many Newbery winners they have already read. They also started making "to read" lists for books that interested them.
In the first full week of circulation, 171 kids took Newbery books out! This means that about 1/3 of our population was reading Newberys!
