In the 1930's Battle of the Books (B.O.B) was a Chicago radio program. Today it is a reading incentive program in elementary, middle and high schools across the USA.
The Librarian here at Faith has been running the Battle for the past few years for the 3rd - 7th graders. Its a voluntary program.
Miss Van explaining the rules of the competition.
Kirsten chose to be in it this year and she had to read many books.
She enjoyed reading the various selections.
Today the Battle played out!
All of the questions in the competition begin with the words "In which book" and the correct answer is always the title and author of the book.
Kirsten's team won the 6th and 7th grade competition.
It was enjoyable to watch the battle! Thankfully, no blood was spilled!!!!

Each of the overall winners received a bag of candy and a
gift certificate to a local bookstore here!
Ecc. 12:12...Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh. 13The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.
