Hi Boys and Girls!
Well, I have been giving a lot of thought about which book to choose for our first book club together. I have decided that I think it would be fun to read books that have won the Newberry Award. Do you know what that is? Well, if you don't, you're in luck because I will tell you.
"The John Newberry Award The Newberry Medal was designed in 1921. It is an award that is given every year for the most distinguished American Children's book published the year before. The American Library Association gave the responsibility for choosing the winner to the Children's Librarians Section. The Newberry Award became the first children's book award in the world."
I found this information at this website: http://library.thinkquest.org/J0113025/Newberry.html
I will look at the list of books that have won this award and then I will make suggestions. If you have a title you want to suggest, please be sure to write to me.
