Spring Reading: April Mock Newbery Suggestions
We’re already 1/4 of the way through 2023, and it’s time to add more titles to our growing list of Mock Newbery suggestions. We got off to a good start in March with 16 early-year releases that Heavy Medal readers have deemed worthy of possible Newbery Medal consideration. You can look at that list of suggestions so far here.
Please suggest up to five Newbery-eligible titles in the comments below. Please limit to books that have already been published…if you’ve read a great Advanced Reader Copy, hold off on suggesting until we reach its official release date. It’s fine to include books that have already been suggested…that can show us which titles might have the most wide-spread support so far.
For a more detailed about our suggestions process, you can check out our March 6 post. For now, though, please share your suggestions below between now and April 8th. We’ll share the full cumulated list of suggestions a week from today, on April 10th.
