2010 Newbery Award Winners

Yay!!!!

2010 Newbery Honors:

Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice by Phillip M. Hoose

The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly

Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin

Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg by Rodman Philbrick

And the 2010 Newbery Medal goes to………… Rebecca Stead for When You Reach Me!!!!!!!!!

This year I read 3 of the 5 award winners, including the medal winner.  My kids chose When You Reach Me as their mock Newbery winner.  I am so excited for Rebecca Stead, who is such a sweetheart.

The awards were interesting this year, because @randomhousekids tweeted a congratulations to to When You Reach Me before the award was announced, breaking the embargo.  Imagine if a dark horse won and the book was exposed early?!  I have a feeling this won’t bode well for Random House at next year’s awards….

Some other winners that I read this year…..

A complete list of the winners can be found at the ALA website.

  1. At breakfast this morning, we agreed that someone at Random House has pie all over his/her face — yikes! Like you, I had read 3 of the 5 Newbery winners and currently am actually reading aloud When You Reach Me to my class. Can’t wait to share with them tomorrow!!

  2. It did seem like a year when it was possible to read lots of the winners. I had 3 out of 5 Newbery winners and all 3 Caldecotts. Very fun.
