Newbery Winner Announced!

Drum roll please. . . the Newbery Award winner for this year was announced earlier today, and I'm so happy to announce that it is The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate!
Here's a summary according to What it doesn't tell you is that you might want to have a tissue handy while you're reading it! (Or maybe that's just me!) Read the book and see what you think!


  1. Our students and teachers are super excited by the Newbery Committee's announcement. Our copies of IVAN have been in constant use since we learned about it from Mr Schu's blog, Watch. Connect. Read.

    1. How exciting, Kathy! I have limited copies of IVAN, so not as many students have read it as I'd like, but now that it's a Newbery winner, I'm hoping to put it into more students' hands. :) Not many teachers were aware of it, so I'm eager to share it with them, too!
