Tournament of Books


Over the past few weeks, the kindergarten, first, and second grade classes have gotten to participate in a tournament of books, our library’s version of March Madness. They absolutely loved voting for each pair of books!

Each pair of books had a theme of sorts:

They All Saw a Cat and Big Cat, Little Cat are Caldecott Honor books.
We Dig Worms! and What Will Grow are non-fiction.
Chalk and The Lion and the Mouse are both wordless.
After the Fall and I Am Not A Chair! are librarian favorites. 🙂



And Chalk won! I was actually surprised, even though it’s a great book. I really thought After the Fall would win, but I think the humor went over the heads of some of the younger kids.

I’m looking forward to making this a yearly event!
