Every January, the American Library Association presents an award to the author of “the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children”– the Newbery Medal. And every year, we like to seek out books that meet the criteria for this award. It is a GREAT way to learn about some of the newest and best literature for children through age fourteen.
On Mondays at Noon, look for posts on this blog that highlight some of the newly published “Mostly Chapter Books” for children & young adults through age 14 which we’ve discovered. We are maintaining an entire list of all the titles posted this year, click here to see it!
