Newbery Medal Winners Announced!

The 2008 Newbery Medal goes to: Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village by Laura Amy Schlitz. 

 Newbery Honors for 2008 include: Elijah of Buxton by Christopher Paul Curtis, The Wednesday Wars  by Gary D. Schmidt , and Feathers by Jacqueline Woodson. 

 I personally read the Wednesday Wars and loved it.  It’s the story of Holling Hoodhood, who gets stuck spending every Wednesday afternoon alone with his teacher, Mrs. Baker. During these afternoon sessions Holling learns to appreciate Shakespeare, and even begins to understand that people are often quite different than they first appear.
