Another Interesting Newbery Site
In my random blog readings, I came across an intersting site I wanted to share with you all. Called The Newbery Project, this is a group blog that anyone can join. Members read Newbery winners (whichever ones they’d like) and post about their thoughts on them.
These readers are not necessarily looking at the books in terms of Newbery Terms & Criteria, so each post reads a bit more like a book review. But, it is certainly interesting to see what various people have thought about winners from the recent and more distant past.
Here is a link to all the posts that talk about Secret of the Andes, for example.
Please note that the spelling of Newbery is incorrect in the blog’s url, so it is actually located at http://newberryproject.blogspot.com. Http://newberyprojectblogpost.com is just a list of which Newbery winners one particular person has read, without comment on them. Way less fun!
