Mock Newbery Discussion Group

Our Mock Newbery Discussion group chose Wonder by R.J. Palacio as this year's award winner. Over the last seven months, participants in grades 4-7 read books that had received starred reviews from professional journals. They joined us each month to discuss the books. After much excitement over many of the titles, Wonder was chosen as their favorite. The real Newbery Award will be announced by the American Library Association on Monday January 28th. Stay tuned!
