I've read four books from this part of the Newbery Medal Winners list.

Impressive list!

I loved The Graveyard Book. I also became interested in The Higher Power of Lucky a few years back because of the furor over Susan Patron's use of the word scrotum on the first page. Even wrote a review and rebuttal on how that was ridiculous.

Both books, in my opinion, take the harsh realities and horrors of life and make them gentle enough for children to place in context.

And they both have a lot to teach adults as well.

My son had to read Sounder in the fifth grade. It was such a sad book and he struggled with the misery, the racism, and the pain (so did I). I'm glad his teacher insisted though since my son now loves literature and isn't afraid to read the tough books and other classics (he's seventeen now and wants to become an English literature teacher).

Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments.

Carole, my son had to read Sounder for school too. I read it with him, so we could talk about it. My son is also seventeen. : )

It's interesting to see the people that won 2 Newbery awards and the years they won them.

Just counted how many of these I've read - only 12, although there are several that I'm still hoping to read.
