The Newbery Challenge: Up a Road Slowly

It's Saturday! The day of the week that Mr. Colby Sharp and I share our thoughts about a Newbery Medal-winning book. 

Please visit Colby's excellent blog to hear his thoughts about Up a Road Slowly

  • Medicare began

Perspective relayed, let’s move right along to the next item on the agenda…

Travis designed the cover on the right.

    Thanks for picking her for a book club choice. (I hope she is not as annoying as Julie!)

    Take care,
