LH Tournament of Books

If you think March Madness is only for basketball, think again! Ms. O’Donnell decided to apply that excitement by challenging her students to make brackets for a “Tournament of Books!” She selected 16 titles that she knew many kids had read. Then, volunteers made book trailers to "advertise" the books. The entire grade had the opportunity to view the trailers before filling out their brackets. The voting began in order to determine the winners for each round. Kids could only vote if they had read both books that were "competing." The champion book winner was Katherine Applegate's The One and Only Ivan. The winner, Ruby Spielberger, had an almost-perfect bracket, with 14 out of a possible 15 points! The prize was a gift certificate to Book Revue. Great job, Ruby!
