Sharon Creech’s Favorite Newbery

naylor shiloh Sharon Creechs Favorite NewberyIt is difficult to choose one favorite among so many favorites, but on this day at this hour, if my back were against the wall, I’d choose Shiloh (1992) by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. I admire its purity and poignancy and Naylor’s skill in rendering complexity
with seeming simplicity…and the dog lives. No small feat, that.

—Sharon Creech,
winner of the 1995 Newbery Medal for Walk Two Moons
