Newbery Medal Winners:
The Newbery Medal is an annual award given to a single book deemed representative of excellence in children's literature for that year. Because I have written middle-grade fiction, I delved into the Newbery list a few years ago and started reading them. For an assessment of what I've learned, check out my blog post from October 2014.
Here is a full list of the Newbery winners. Note: the year is when the book won the award, not necessarily its year of publication. Links go to my personal reviews of the books - and what I learned from them as a writer. I've read books marked with an asterisk, but have not reviewed them.
