Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books logo from another programWhile working on a logic models assignment I came across a great program outline at Burlington Public Library.

Battle of the Books is a trivia  competition  for kids, where the librarian or volunteer asks questions about literature or authors. Children compete in teams of six and there is a trophy for the winning team. In the program I read about several schools in three cities compete.

This is a fun way to promote reading, team spirit and allow bookworms to develop the competitive edge that their extrovert classmates may have in other programs like sports.
