The Newbery Award: Contenders and Predictions

by

We are about 3 and a half months away from the Newbery winner announcement, but already a lively discussion among children’s book lovers has been active in magazines, blogs and web sites. Reading about other people’s predictions is a good way to learn about good books to read even if they don’t end up being the winner. Here are a few titles that have been bounced around as possible award winners for the January announcement:

Circus Mirandus  The War that Saved My Life  Tricky Vic: The Impossibly True Story of the Man Who Sold the Eiffel Tower Echo Gone Crazy in Alabama

Goodbye Stranger   Here are six titles that are possible winners (or at least they are pretty good books to curl up with!)

THE WAR THAT SAVED MY LIFE by Kimberly Bradley

THE IMPOSSIBLY TRUE STORY OF TRICKY VIC by Greg Pizzoli

ECHO by Pam Munoz Ryan

GONE CRAZY IN ALABAMA by Rita Williams-Garcia
