Book Awards: Newbery Medal
2013 Mock Newbery Program
Every January, the American Library Association presents an award to the author of “the most distinguished
contribution to American literature for children”– the Newbery Medal. And every year, we like to seek out books
that meet the criteria for this award. It is a GREAT way to learn about some of the newest and best literature
for children through age fourteen.
On Mondays, look for posts on the ACPL Kid Blog that highlight some of the newly published “Mostly Chapter Books”
for children & young adults through age 14 which we’ve discovered. We are maintaining an entire list of all
the titles posted this year, click here to see it!
Let us know what you think of these great new 2012 titles in the comments field of our blog. In addition, if you would
like to suggest a title, please email us.
suggestions can be sent to Mary R. Voors,
Manager, Children's Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
