Today marks the end of the first month of the Old School Kidlit Reading Challenge. January's focus was on award winners. If you reviewed or otherwise posted about an "Old School" award winner (or multiple winners) this month, please leave a comment below with a link so other participants can see what you read.
I read four books for the challenge this month:
- The Family from One End Street by Eve Garnett (1938 Carnegie Medal winner)
- The Windy Hill by Cornelia Meigs (1922 Newbery Honor)
- The House of Dies Drear by Virginia Hamilton (1969 Edgar Award Winner for Best Juvenile Mystery)
- The Night Swimmers by Betsy Byars (1981 National Book Award)
Tomorrow, I'll be introducing the February theme, Books You Loved in Childhood.
