Newberry challenge

Tuesday, April 17th, 2007

Because there are so many challenges out there, I thought I’d start one of my own. While I like all the challenges, I wanted to craft one to meet my needs and others could join in if they want. When I was looking at the Pulitzer list and Newberry list recently I realized that I’ve read more Newberry books. And I like it that way. I am a mother. I like to have my pulse on what the kids are reading AND I love young adult fiction. It reminds me of curling up in my dad’s lazy boy and reading the afternoon away. It also makes me wonder if I could write children’s books too.
So here is the challenge…
1. Pick 6 books from the Newberry list.
2. Comment here that you are in the challenge and list to your blog.
3. Post your picks on your blog.
4. You have from May 15, 2007 to Dec 31, 2007 to read and review the 6 books you choose.
Anyone up for it?
If you look at my 15decades list you’ll note I have a few Newberry winners on there but I think I’ll pick some others for this challenge.
Updated 4/18/07
My picks:
1. The Giver by Lois Lowry (1994)
2. Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan (1986)
3. Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien (1972)
4. The Door in the Wall by Marguerite de Angeli (1950)
5. Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink (1936)
6. Gay Neck, the Story of a Pigeon (1928)
