Sometimes, when a reader is stuck about what to read next, I suggest he or she go to the shelf of Newbery Medal books. And sometimes, I hesitate to make that suggestion. Not every medal winner has been delightful for me, and I worry that the readers may feel the same. So, I have begun rereading some titles I read many years ago in children's literature courses. On the top of the pile this weekend is the 1964 winner.
What have been some of your favorites through the years?
