May - A Book From Each Decade

Here are Krystal’s picks:

1950's- Charlotte's Web, by E.B. White

1960’s- The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norton Juster

1970's- Are you There God? It's Me Margaret, by Judy Blume

1980's- Dicey's Song, by Cynthia Voigt

1990's- The Year of Impossible Good-byes, by Sook-Nyul Choi

If you have read any of these before or have time to read others, try Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry, by Mildred D. Taylor (1970's) or Dear Mr. Henshaw, by Beverly Cleary (1980's). Also, please spend a little time thinking about books you loved when you were in elementary and junior high school. We'll talk a little bit about how the books we grew up compare with books being published today.

I think Cleary’s books have been published in 20 different languages and have earned many awards. A few examples of awards she has won include a Newbery Medal for Dear Mr. Henshaw
