Newbery Challenge: Tales from Silver Lands


Colby Sharp and I are attempting to read every Newbery Medal winner. Yeah, you read that correctly. Every.Single.One. We're up to 1925. Four down, many more to go.


Visit Colby Sharp's blog to hear his thoughts on Tales from Silver Lands.


I'm going to miss Picnik when it shuts down on April 19. Sigh. But until then, I'm taking advantage of Picnik Premium for free.

The cover on the right was designed by Travis Jonker (aka Scope Notes). He is redesigning the covers of Newbery Medal-winning books.

Borrow Tales from Silver Lands from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.

  1. Love your video! And you are a better person than I am because I absolutely skimmed much of this book. I couldn't take it, it was SO BORING! :) I am hopeful as well that the 30s will bring better books.

  2. You da MAN, Mr. Schu! Half way done with the 20s!

  3. Great video! I put a pause on Nerdbery (although I did read Norvelt), and now I'm pursuing Nerdcott. But somehow, Silver Lands made its way into my library bag this afternoon! I suspect your influence was at work here.
    I'll keep you posted on how I do with that one.
    Your videos are so entertaining. Maybe one day I'll try my own.

  4. I'm so glad I took on this challenge. Hearing from others reading the books is helping me make it through. I'm on 1929 now (Trumpeter of Krakow) and I'm here to say it DOES get better!

  5. First of all I am so glad I found this blog and started following! I also have a goal to read all of the Newberry books, but not necessarily in order. The 21 Balloons has been my favorite so far.
