Holy Bagumba! Our First Mock Newbery Book.

Mock Newbery groups are forming this month at Prairie Creek Intermediate.

What is a Mock Newbery group? These groups will follow the procedures of the actual Newbery committee. We will read a set of great books published this year, use a version of the official criteria to evaluate these titles, and vote to decide the books we think should win.  In January we'll compare our results to the official Newbery winning books.

Our first title for consideration is Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures by Kate DiCamillo.

More titles coming soon.
