Mock Newbery 2018 Resources (audio excerpts, book trailers, slideshow, bookmark...)

 Here is a brief introductory slideshow about the 10 Berkeley Mock Newbery nominees for 2018 (remember to press "Present" for best viewing experience).

The Berkeley Mock Newbery Book Club program is supported with generous grants from Berkeley Rotary, Berkeley Schools Fund, various PTAs, and the BUSD Library Service Department.  
And the winner? Why, all of us, of course, for reading and discussing so many good books. For more specifics about these titles, please enjoy this write up about our launch in the A+ News, and this summary (including our Mock Newbery results) by Mary Ann Scheuer on GreatKidBooks.
