March Book Madness

March Book Madness
Posted on 02/15/2017

During library time, the fifth grade will be participating in MARCH BOOK MADNESS during the Month of March? How does it work?

The program was started by two fifth grade teachers in Ohio. Here's what they say: "Sixteen titles were selected as "The New Classics" through work done at NerdCamp Michigan and online voting. The bracket was announced on Wednesday, February 8, 2017. Voting will begin on Wednesday, March 1, 2017."

A lot of kids have read a few of these books already. To vote, you have to read two books that are facing off against each other. Stay Tuned!
