Junior Battle of the Books! Team: Nancy Kay Holmes Branch Library!
2013 Junior Battle of the Books titles are:
• Wonder by R.J. Palacio,
• Touch Blue by Cynthia Lord,
• Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
• The Puzzling World of Winston Breen by Eric Berlin
• The Shadows: (The Book of Elsewhere, vol. 1) by Jacqueline West
Through the fun and excitement of weekly team meetings and the final competition, kids improve their reading skills, mature in their choice of reading materials, and acquire a broader knowledge base of classic and contemporary literature. Even during the height of competition, kids will be encouraged to remember that our shared goals are to READ and HAVE FUN, not necessarily to win!
