TO COME AND GO LIKE MAGIC has been selected for Battle of the Books 2012 in Halifax, Nova Scotia! Woozles, Canada’s oldest children’s bookstore, has been running the Battle of the Books program since 1986. Books chosen for the competition include both current titles and classics, international titles and books published in Canada. Student teams from various schools read the selected titles and compete in games (similar to “It’s Academic”).
The “battle” is a year-long process with books chosen in early May and Round 1 of the competition beginning in January. The Final Game generally takes place in May.
Check out the short video clip about Battle of the Books that aired on CTV. For additional information about how the program works, please check out the FAQs for Battle of the Books. This sounds like a lot of fun and a great way to promote reading!
