My life's goal is to read all the Newbery Medal Winners and Newbery Honor books, but sometimes my writing gets in the way.

We Need More "Rules"

Cynthia Lord's Newbery Honor Book "Rules" is outstanding. It brings to life the feelings of Catherine when relating to her autistic brother, David. What great writing! In reverse, Gennifer Choldenko's acclaimed "Al Capone Does My Shirts" portrays a brother with a special needs sister. Books that help siblings cope deserve all the awards they can get.
