What a wonderful Battle of the Books we had last night! I was so proud of all of our participants. Many of our students started reading Maine Student Book Awards long ago in September in preparation for this event. Their ability to recall information from the books was amazing - they answered questions that ranged from "Who is the author of The Popularity Papers?" to "In Cloud Tea Monkeys, what color is the pouch that Tashi is given every year in exchange for the cloud tea?"
The 2012-13 Maine Student Book Award titles are out, so it's not too soon to start preparing for next year's Battle!
