The Newbery Honor Challenge: 2009

Dear Mr. Sharp,

Happy Saturday! I filmed this week's video when I was in Boston. As you'll hear right at the end of the video, someone knocked on my hotel room door. It startled me, and I hit the stop button on the camera.  I didn't want to break our one-take rule, so you're watching an "unfinished" video. :) 

Please visit Mr. Sharp's blog to see which book he read. I predict he read The Surrender Tree

This video provides a nice overview of Jacqueline Woodson's work. 

"A good story has to have good characters that the reader cares about. It has to have an emotional core so that the reader has something, along with someone, to kind of attach to and go on an emotional journey with." - Jacqueline Woodson

Borrow After Tupac and D Foster from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
