OMG! Mr. Schu and I have now read and made a video for every single Newbery Medal winning book from 1923- 1949. If I had 10 words to describe the books so far it would look like this:
1940s: Not Good
Yay! “Not Good” is so much better than awful and terrible. I actually really really liked a few of the books in the 40s, but I’m not going to lie, I am excited we are getting to now read books that were published during the lifetime of my parents. Yippee!
I figured I put together a little post of my favorites from the 1940s.

My Favorite Mr. Sharp video: Johnny Tremain
