Newbery Challenge: Flora & Ulysses

On January 1, 2012 Mr. Schu and I started the Newbery Challenge. We had a lot of fun reading every Newbery medal winning book. When we finished the challenge last fall, I started looking forward to hearing which book would win the 2014 Newbery Medal.

I’m hoping that Mr. Schu and I film Newbery videos together for many years to come. Below you will find our Newbery video for the 2014 winner.

  1. Aww, what a great video! I loved when Mr. Schu made the comment that Kate DiCamillo was surprised at the Newbery call and how it shows that authors don’t write books to win these kinds of awards, they write them to touch kids’ lives. And was that “Dublin” mentioned at the end as a place you want to do next year’s Newbery winner video? If so, you should go and I will be happily jealous of you~ always wanted to go to Ireland.


  2. You know, I should start calling you guys “Barbara” and “Walters” ’cause the two of you ALways have the ability to make me choke up if the subject’s right 🙂 LOVED this video. Your emotions are contagious 🙂


  3. SUCH a great video post. Makes me want to read Flora and Ulysses again. I’m also so thankful that John will be sharing his opinion about books with us again!
