Time for June Suggestions
Have you read any more excellent Newbery-eligible books in the past month? Now’s the time to let us know by submitting your June suggestions.
To add to our growing list of possible 2023 Newbery contenders, just provide the titles and authors in the comments below. It’s fine to include books that others have already suggested. Please include only titles that have been published…if you’ve read a great Advance Reader Copy, just keep it on hold until its official publication month. You can add as many as five suggestions per month; fewer is fine too. More details about our suggestion process can be found in this post from March.
I got off to a slow start this year by catching up on adult fiction, but I’ve made the shift and have had a fine time getting caught up on new children’s books in the past several weeks. I read enough excellent books that I had to winnow down my list to make it to the five-title-per-month-maximum. Please add your below any time through Saturday, June 11th, and we’ll count them up and post the cumulated list of suggestions shortly after that..
