Newbery Project

When I heard about the Pulitzer Project and the Booker Project, I said to myself that I wished someone would make a Newbery Project. Guess what? They already did! So I found out about this today over at Dewey's (blog removed) and right away I had to go sign up. This is an on-going Project with no deadlines. I've marked the ones I've read but haven't reviewed in RED. There are a few I'm not quite sure if I've read them or not and I've marked them GREY.

I've read a few of these as a kid and a lot as an adult. But most of them I've read as read-alouds to my older son over the last 12 years or so, as we've homeschooled.

Links to my reviews are added as I review them, with re-reads noted in bold.  My goal is to have a review of every Newbery winner on my blog :-) Then we'll talk Honors LOL!
