“The Newbery Medal was named for eighteenth-century British bookseller John Newbery. It is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.” That’s what it says on the ALA web site. And, if you’re a regular visitor to this blog, you’ll recall I reviewed When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead on December 14, 2009 and you can read it here. This is just an update to say, “Can I pick them, or what!” When You Reach Me won the Newbery Award as the best Children’s Book of 2010. Congratulations to Rebecca Stead! Drongo, Jeff, and I enjoyed this fine novel. You will, too!
