Notes on September 2017

In September . . .

Fall Preview 2017

. . . we looked ahead.

I highlighted ten books coming out this fall.

Morris Wants More

. . . I noticed a new category of books.

On a scale of 1-10, how mad will these books make our president?

Goodreads Newbery 2018 1

. . . we checked in on some books that might (might) be taking home Newbery and Caldecott.

It seemed like a fine time to check out the Goodreads mock Caldecott and Newbery lists.
