August Suggestions: Add to Our List of 2022 Newbery Contenders

We’re just over a month away from starting up with our Heavy Medal Mock Newbery discussions. Starting in September we’ll be taking closer looks at many of the titles on our list of suggestions and possibly some other Newbery-eligible books. This year I’ll be joined by a new co-blogger…she will introduce herself in September.

Meanwhile, we continue to build our list of possible 2022 Newbery contenders. If you have any titles to suggest, please add them to the comments below. Remember that we limit suggestions on this blog to titles that have already been published in print form. We also ask for no more than five suggestions per month. You can find more details about our suggestion process in this March post.

You may share your suggestions below any time between now and August 9th. We’ll update totals and post them shortly after that.
