Newbury Challenge - 2007

May 15 - December 31, 2007

Nattie over at Nattie Writes began the Newbury Challenge - perfect for those who love to read award winning children's books! Here's the rules:

1. Pick 6 books from the Newberry list.
2. Comment on Natties blog that you are in the challenge and link to your blog.
3. Post your picks on your blog.
4. You have from May 15, 2007 to Dec 31, 2007 to read and review the 6 books you choose.

Nattie's friend, Dana, will continue to host this challenge in Nattie's memory and has started a blog for this challenge here. If you want to post to the blog, leave her a comment and she will invite you.

May 25, 2007 UPDATE: Some of you may know that Nattie, who is hosting this challenge, has been recently diagnosed with stomach cancer. A group of her on-line friends are asking for prayers for Nattie. Thank you for your support, prayers, good thoughts, meditations - whatever it is you do to send strength Nattie's way.

June 7, 2007 UPDATE: Sadly, Nattie has lost her brief battle with stomach cancer. She will be terribly missed... You may visit this site to leave remembrances.

A precious gift from God,
