Newbery Challenge Update: Onion John

Finally, summer’s here and I can get back to the Newbery Challenge.  I finished the 1960 winner recently (Onion John, by Joseph Krumgold) and here’s my rating:

3 of 5 stars for the writing

2 stars for relevance for today’s students and my ability to “sell” it to 3rd graders  (I’m in a K-3 school)

Up next:  Ginger Pye
