2016 Books from Newbery Winners

2016 Newbery Winners

Around a third of Newbery Medal and Honor winners have won more than once. I actually looked into that. We better run down the 2016 books from past Newbery winners, then.

In case you missed it, I did the same thing for Caldecott Winners

For the sake of my sanity, I excluded picture books from this list. I know, I know – check the most recent Newbery winner, Travis. I see it. But draw the line I did! If I missed anything, let me know in the comments.

  4. I am counting down the seconds until the new Kate DiCamillo. Everything I’ve heard about it makes me think she may be the first 3-time Newbery winner this time next year.
