Back by popular demand! In June we presented a virtual Mock Newbery Bookshelf highlighting 2021 Newbery-worthy titles published through the first half of the year. Fall is traditionally a busy time for children’s book publishers, but this year, there has been an explosion of exceptional children’s books published in the early months of autumn.
To satisfy the demand for middle grade reading recommendations, we announce the 2021 Mock Newbery Bookshelf Fall Edition with Mock Newbery top contenders published in 2020. The list contains mostly new titles, a couple of repeats, plus a few that didn’t make it on our list in the Summer Edition. To request a book, click on the booklist link below, then click on the green button to instantly <Checkout Now>.
The announcement of this year’s Newbery winners, among other Youth Media Awards, will be on Monday, January 25, 2021, at the American Library Association’s midwinter conference.
What’s your pick from the books you’ve read to this point of the year? Stay tuned, there’s still more to come!
