The Naperville Public Library, Anderson’s Book Shop and District 203 teamed up to host their annual “Battle of the Books.”
The intense competition held at Nichols Library had teams of four answering a series of questions regarding the content in 20 different books chosen by the Steering Committee.
The matchup challenged the memories of the 4th and 5th graders, with the added bonus of improving their reading skills throughout the year.
Reading is important to read anything and especially at this age it takes them into different adventures, and different worlds, and learn about different cultures, countries and it’s there confidence level and their ability to deal with what they understand when they go out in the real world,” said Rashmi Mehrotra, Steering Committee member of Battle of the Books.
Participating Elementary Schools were Highlands, Beebe, Mill Street, Naper and Meadow Glens. And though everyone went home with a trophy, highlands took the honors of first place for both the 4th and 5th grade level.
This was the 28th year for battle of the books.
