Battle of the Books

Colton participated at school in something called "Battle of the Books".  Basically, kids form teams.  All the teams have to read a bunch of books (usually ones that have either won awards or are best sellers for their age group), then they get asked questions about the books at the Battle of the Books event.  I think there were 3 or 4 battles at different times during the school year.  Each battle, the questions were over 4 different books, so these kids ended up reading quite a lot of books!  Not a problem at our house.  These kids LOVE to read!

When the proctor asks the team a question, they have a certain time to answer. They are allowed to discuss the answer between themselves before answering...
