I worked with 6th graders last week to talk about the John Newbery Award for children’s literature. Students enjoyed hearing about the history of the award and looking at the books that won the award in the 20s and 30s. I showed them a poster with all the winners from 1922 to 2010, talked about the runner’s up books called Newbery Honor winners, and did booktalks on When You Reach Me (2010 winner) and The Graveyard Book (2009 winner). I showed book trailers for them too. I ended the lesson with a challenge. Only five authors have won the Newbery Award twice. Who are they?
