This post covers the Newbery titles I’ve read from 1960 to 1990.
1960: Onion John by Joseph Krumgold – Don’t try changing weird neighbor
1961: Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell – Worth reading again as adult
1963: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle – Great book in every way
1969: The High King by Lloyd Alexander – Why was book 5 chosen?
1972: Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien – Big 80’s kid nostalgia factor
1978: Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson – Bittersweet YA story about friendship
1986: Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan – Can read in an hour
1987: The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman – Probably scar you for life
