Gallery: Curse of the Three Star Book
Last year, I noted here and here that it’s very easy for books with three starred reviews to slip under our radar and earn Newbery recognition. We can’t read everything, and what we do read, we can’t always read as carefully as the Newbery committee. Here are thirteen books–a baker’s dozen–which earned three starred reviews. They all deserve more attention, but we will only have time to discuss some of them in greater depth. If you see a pet title here, then speak up!
