2020 Books from Newbery Winners

This time of year, some people’s thoughts turn to spring. My thoughts turn toward the year in books. And spring. Spring’s good too.

But back to books. I foraged all the 2020 books from past Newbery Medal and Honor winners I could find.

Did I miss one? Let me know in the comments.

  1. Isn’t this amazing? Makes me want to take a year off and just read right down this list! I’m especially eager for Joyce Sidman’s HELLO EARTH.

  2. So many exciting new releases! But I think Grayling’s Song is just the paperback release — the hardcover came out in 2016.

  3. Eric Carpenter says

    Reading Ways to Make Sunshine to a group of 2nd graders right now. It’s fantastic and they are all loving it!

  4. Nicole Choiniere says

    So many great authors.

  5. Jennifer Potter says

    Oh how can I get all of these to read NOW!!!
