  1. Thanks for your comment on my blog. Nice to meet you and your website is wonderful. Just wanted to let you know about another Newbery Award resource: Laura’s Life (http://lauramitolife.blogspot.com/) Laura is a ten-year-old who has read and blogged about every single Newbery winner. It gives you a contemporary child’s viewpoint on these books. Plus she is a unique and very cool kid.
