For a book to win the 2020 Newbery it must have been written by an American Author and have been published in 2019. The actual Newbery committee is looking for “The most distinguished contribution to American literature for children published by an American publisher in the United States in English during the preceding year”. The list below is of eligible books. The list is by no means comprehensive. We have, or will have all the listed books in the library. As books are released they will be placed on the Newbery shelves. The starred books are books that have the highest potential of showing up with shiny medals, as determined by Mrs. Johnson. To be eligible to vote you will need to read five total books, with four being starred selections.
Read at least four titles from this list. It will be added to, keep an eye on the list in the library.
