Newberry challenge

Friday, October 2nd, 2009

(Originally published by Nattie on April 17, 2007)
Because so many challenges already exist, 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 finger on the pulse of what the kids are reading and I love young adult fiction. It reminds me of curling up in my dad’s la-z-boy and reading the afternoon away. It makes me wonder if I could write children’s books, too.
