Read full description of the books Onion John:And speaking of Newbery Award winners, here is 1960's. Being a compulsive list maker, I'm proud to report that I have now read 42 of the past 77 award winners, and despite some recent doubts in the press about the Newbery, I have found that this project an excellent avenue to get a feel for children's literature. 'Onion John' is an extraordinary book, ostensibly about twelve-year-old Andy Rusch's friendship with the town eccentric and how that helps Andy and his father to work out the problems fathers and sons have with expectations, but it's really about listening and looking--really listening and looking. Although we adults often criticize children for lacking focus, this is something they are often much better at than their elders. We can learn as much from their open eyes and ears, as they can from our experienced ones.
