Newbery Honor Challenge: 2013

Dear Mr. Sharp, 

Happy, happy birthday! How does it feel to be 33? I hope you have a relaxing and memorable day. 

I didn't think I would get this post up in time because my basement flooded yesterday. What an inconvenience! As you'll hear in the video, my brain was super scattered and I had other things on my mind. I was about to tell you about a box of books Margie sent me when"Camcorder full" popped up on my screen. Oops. Gotta love our one-take rule. :) 

Have a happy birthday! 


Head on over to Colby's blog to see which book he picked. I think he went with Three Times Lucky

Steve Sheinkin thanks the 2013 Newbery Committee.

Steve talks about true stories and inspiration.

Jim Averbeck interviewed Steve Sheinkin. 

Head on over to to hear a great introduction to Bomb

Borrow Bomb from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops. 


I mentioned Guys Read: True Stories during my video. It will be released on September 16, 2014.

The One and Only Ivan won the 2013 Newbery Medal. 


  1. There are SO many books worthy of our time, but not enough time to read them! *sigh*

    (Happy Birthday, Colby! :D )
