The Newbery Challenge: The Higher Power of Lucky

Please visit Mr. Colby Sharp's blog to watch his latest Newbery Challenge video. 

"As the Newbery Honor recipients, we wanted to share our feelings on the current Newbery discussions. We are delighted and honored to be in the wonderful company of Susan Patron and her incredible book, The Higher Power of Lucky. We support her creative vision and hope that the present controversy will not overshadow her remarkable achievement. Readers everywhere, young and old, are truly lucky to have such a book in their schools, libraries, stores, and in the world."
