Newbery Challenge - Video #1

The early Caldecott winners are messing with my allergies, so I might purchase the early Newbery Medal winners. Anderson's Bookshop would appreciate the business. I'm not sure my credit card would, though.
The Story of Mankind


  1. Oh my...I need to go the library and do this too, lol (not the vid, just walk quickly up the aisle and get that book, which I have never read). Thanks for sharing and happy reading...hope your allergies and cred card work something out.

    Happy New Year!

    p.s. congrats on the edublog award! very well deserved I must say.

  2. Oh wow...the very first Newbery winner. I loved the video intro, and now must see if I can find this book in my library as well. How cool was that illustrated chronology?!

  3. Mr Schu! I love the Newbery and Caldecott Reading Challenge - it overlaps beautifully with our Award-winning-books one! Perhaps we should also join in those challenges in addition to our very own. Hmmm. Seems like a great idea. :) We're also playing around with the nonfiction picture book challenge! Yay to kidlit reading challenges! :)

    And I'd definitely check out The Story of Mankind - looks like a formidable read though.
