Newbery Award Books

Here’s help for Booko readers! These are some of the Newbery Award winning books we have read for Booko (or just for fun) in days and years past, and we have them in our home library (to lend you when you find out that your child still needs to read a Newbery Award-winner by the next morning and the library has already closed). And just in case you were wondering about who Newbery himself was, check out this book called Balderdash!:
