Interested in the Newberry?

If you’re interested in the Newberry, you might want to follow a blog on School Library Journal on the mock Newberrys. You can read it here.

Anita Silvey had an interesting post in SLJ saying the Newberry had lost its way, and that the books were no longer popular with readers. You can read it here.

But the Newberry rules say “Note: The committee should keep in mind that the award is for literary quality and quality presentation for children. The award is not for didactic intent or for popularity.” You can see them here.
