It's not to early to get started planning for Mock Newbery 2018. I'm a planner and with the need to create a Donors Choose - I've been trying to be proactive with getting a book list together for Mock Newbery 2018. To prepare, I've been watching the #MockNewbery hashtag on Twitter as well as trying to keep up with 2017 #kidlit releases. I've read several books so far and have a list of other buzz worthy books and authors. Here are a few books that I feel should be on your radar (as of now) if you're thinking of starting a Mock Newbery Book Club.
Books to Keep on Your Radar:
- Beyond the Bright Sea - May 2nd
- Moon Shadow - May 16th
- Orphan Island - May 30th
- Walking with Miss Millie - July 4th
