Our kids go to State : Battle of the Books

Both Amelia and Samuel’s teams won their schools Battle of the Books and represented their town for the state competition. If you don’t know what it is, basically you have a team of four that needs to read and comprehend 20 books. You then get quizzed on those books as a team.

They ask questions like “In what book did the grandma make apple pie?” or “Charlie was the main character in what book?” or “This book has a school named View Ridge Heights in it?”  I of course just made those questions up, but you get the point.

They then need to give the title and author (spelled correctly) for each answer.  There is serious training involved with weekly practice and lots of stretching.
