Newbery Honor

From Academic Kids

The Newbery Honor is a citation given by the American Library Association (ALA) to select American children's books. The Newbery Honor is given to worthy runner ups for the Newbery Medal, a higher honor. Though the Newbery Honor was initiated in 1971, specially cited runners-up for the Newbery Medal from previous years were retroactively named Newbery Honor books.

The following is a list of Newbery Honor books, in reverse chronological order:
