#KidsLitChallenge Day 21: In Time Gone Past. Set in the fourteenth century, THE MIDWIFE'S APPRENTICE by Karen Cushman is the story of a girl first called Brat, then Beetle, who is hauled out of a dung heap by the fierce midwife Jane Sharpe and then becomes her apprentice. Beetle comes to learn she's more than just a brat from the dung heap and perhaps she's even...clever. #kidlit #karencushman #newberymedalwinner

Who knew renowned children's author Kate DiCamillo was so darn FUNNY?? The woman could do stand-up comedy. The crowd here at the Salon@615 event at @nowatnpl is absolutely enthralled. #katedicamillo #raymienightingale #newberymedalwinner #parnassusevents #nashville

Today we celebrate the birthday of children's novelist, #ELKonigsburg, author of || From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler || (1967) about young Claudia and Jamie from Connecticut who run away from home and live at the #MetropolitanMuseumOfArt for three days. A beloved book that's still read today (in fact I just gave a tour to 4th graders who were reading the book!). Fun Facts: The book was written in 1967 when the museum was much smaller. It's quoted in the book that the collection included about 365,000 objects. Today, the #MetMuseum collection is 2 million objects. And the building is much bigger, featuring additional wings for the American collection, the home to the Temple of Dendur, as well as the wing that houses Arts of the Africa, Oceania, and the Americas.
The period bed that Claudia and Jamie slept in is no longer on display, and the fountain within the restaurant where the children bathed in and then collected the "wishing" coins is no longer there. But you can still see the impressive Roman columns surrounding the Roman Sculpture Court that are illustrated by Konigsburg in the book. And on the cover, shown here? The Grand Staircase does not have a red carpet.
#Konigsburg won the #NewberyMedal for the book, a major motion picture with Ingrid Bergman was made in 1973, and a TV adaptation with Lauren Bacall was made in 1995.

I've always adored Children's Literature. Just finished this little #newberymedal winner. The review is up on the blog (link in bio)! #childrensbooks #childrensliterature #bookblogger

On the hunt for third grade read aloud books for the upcoming year! Loving this #newberymedalwinner we started in summer school! #summerschool #readalouds #newtothird

I can't believe it took me until adulthood to read this book. This book has everything: odd millionaires, strangers, mansions, murder, bombs, fake identities, precocious children, horrible parents, and one giant, twisty, mystery. Dark without being morbid, exciting without being scary, edgy without losing heart. Read it in one sitting. #bookstagram #newberymedalwinner #books #bookworm #newberybooks #readthisdangbook

Love coming across foreign editions of TBG classics on IG. Here's the Brazilian edition of When You Reach Me by @rebstead. What a cool jacket. Also: It's thrilling to think of all the young readers who are about to experience this amazing book for the first time this summer! #summereading #whenyoureachme #newberymedalwinner

7/10. June 2017.
This book surprised me. I thought I wouldn't like it because I'm never drawn to YA novels, however this book swept me off my feet and I couldn't put it down. Cracking characters and a really good hooking storyline with twists and turns. Elements of hope, timetravel, racism and class.

'Fuzzy Mud'  is one of our middle fiction picks from our current guide.
Tamaya and Marshall are unlikely friends at a school in Pennsylvania. One day, to avoid the school bully Chad, they set off into the forest, only to find something much more sinister than a bully – fuzzy mud. Tamaya must choose between breaking the rules and doing the right thing. It's a gripping story with strong messages about caring for the environment and the importance of friendship.

Library sale strikes again. These are "mostly" for the kids, I mean, I already own The Graveyard Book, I don't need two editions, right? Ok, Fahrenheit 451 is totally not for the kids, I Heard The Owl Call My Name is me being nostalgic for when I read it as a kid, and Acka Backa Boo is more nostalgia because holy crap, someone wrote a kids book about that silly song from when we were kids! Oh whatever, books are great no matter who they're for.

I chose to read this book to complete a reading challenge at my local library. The prompt was "published the decade you were born". I remember a teacher reading #bridgetoterabithia to the class and I remember loving it. #Katherinepaterson has wrote a timeless story that I enjoyed reading again.

So I finished A Wrinkle in Time this morning. It was very good, but I think my favorite part was reading Madeleine L'Engle's Newbery Medal acceptance speech at the end of the book. She said some very true, inspiring things. This part is especially relatable for me. I don't know why I feel so compelled to write my novel, (The Enchanted Tapestry). I really have no idea what it might mean to its readers, or if there will exist any deeper meanings at all; I only know that I MUST write it! #writersofinstagram #awrinkleintime #madeleinelengle #newberymedal #newberymedalwinner #fantasy #cempelledtowrite #evelynmercyprice #thepriceiswrite #theenchantedtapestry #acceptancespeech #bookstagram #booklover #booklovers #bookloversunite #booklove #yafantasybooks #yafantasy #kidlit #writer #aspiringnovelist
