Children’s Readathon – Award-Winning Books (Week 2) – Links to Reviews

Posted on Updated on

Our second week focuses on children’s award-winning books… from Caldecott to Newbery. A few dozen people are participating this month by reading and sharing reviews on many childhood favorites that were selected in a previous poll. Below are all the links I collected; they’ll take you to the original blogger’s review. For award-winning books, we read them from 8/11 to 8/16 and posted our reviews by 8/17.

Please email or message me if you’re participating or posting a review so I can add you to the list below of blogs to watch. You can add in anything into your post besides a review, e.g. giveaways, author profiles, background material, educational ideas, etc. Have fun with it! AWARD WINNERS

Don’t worry about the count of books, as (1) you can read only the ones you want and (2) some are less than 25 pages!
