During the recording of our For the Love of Books and More episode, Lauren ran into some technical difficulties. Her computer crashed several times. Even though Lauren was gone for a few minutes, Leah and Mandy kept talking. This bonus episode is their conversation in Lauren’s absence. Enjoy!

In this episode of Reading the Newberys, we discuss the winner of the 1981 Newbery Medal Jacob Have I Loved by Katherine Paterson. Our discussion does get into some slightly mature themes (coming of age/sexual awakening), so use your own judgement if you are listening while little ears are present. We hope you enjoy this discussion of Katherine Paterson’s second Newbery Medal winning book! (Age recommendation for this book: 13 and up)
In this episode of Reading the Newberys, we discuss the winner of the 1995 Newbery Medal, Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech. If you haven’t read this book and want to avoid spoilers, we suggest you read the book before listening to this episode. There are several plot twists in the story and we were here for it! We hope you will take us along with you as you run errands, fold laundry, or go for a walk! (Age recommendation for this book: 12 and up)
