The Newbery Medal Infographic

A couple months back I realized that although there are tons of infographics in the world, there aren’t many with a children’s literature focus. Let’s right that wrong.

Last time out we had the world’s first Caldecott Medal infographic, and today we take on Newbery. Click to enlarge.

    Kind of frightening that most people don’t realize that ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS is riddled with errors of bias and omission and stereotyping.

  2. PragmaticMom says:

    Great graphic! I’ve pinned it onto my Best Books for Kids Pinterest Board:

  3. Eric Carpenter says:

    Nice. I eagerly await the presumably forthcoming Geisel, Carnegie, Printz, Odyssey, Sibert, CSK, and Belpré infographics!

    • Travis Jonker says:

      Ha – you may be waiting a while for those (but I’m game). Whenever I do one of these I feel like I’m channeling my inner Eric Carpenter so I’m glad you had a look at it

  4. Judy Freeman says:

    Thanks, Travis. I missed the one you did on Caldecott, so I got to see two cool charts in one day–double the fun! These are wonderful.

  5. Lisa says:

    This is amazing. Is the Geisel infographic next? Mo Willems would probably break some records on that one.
