Balderdash!: John Newbery and the Boisterous Birth of Children's BooksBalderdash!: John Newbery and the Boisterous Birth of Children’s Books by Michelle Markel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was great to read about the person who inspired one of the most prestigious awards in children’s literature.

As a publisher, a bookseller, an author, and a clever marketer, John Newbery became an early pioneer in making children’s books things that kids would actually want to read.

A fascinating story paired with lively illustrations and packed with lots of back matter information. Book lovers- particularly those in the kidlit community- will enjoy this and want to add this to their collection.
