What does “March Madness” mean to you? If you’d rather read than watch the latest basketball game, this blog post is for you! School Library Journal is hosting its annual Battle of the Kids’ Books, a month of “matches” between recent kids’ chapter books. Each match is judged by a children’s book author. 16 books, 1 winner! Just like in basketball, a roster is available for you to download and make your predictions!
Round 1/Match 1, was between Bomb and Wonder. The judge, Kenneth Oppel, is the author of a number of books including the picture book The King’s Taster and the Airborn series. Click here to find out who he chose as the winner!
If you’d like to play along download the bracket here. Round 1 lasts until March 21. Once those battles are decided, the victors begin round 2. We’ll make a few posts with our predictions as the battles continue.
