School Library Journal's 'Battle of the kids' Books'
School Library Journal’s third annual “Battle of the Kids’ Books” begins on Monday, March 14, with a scorching competition that pits 16 of last year’s best books for young people against each other. A brilliant array of top-notch authors, like Richard Peck, Karen Hesse, and R.L. Stine, will bring their A-game expertise in children's and young adult literature—and over the next few weeks, they’ll read and eliminate books as they get closer to the grand prize. What makes this contest fun and unique is that you’ll hear directly from the 15 judges in their blog posts about why they decided to keep or get rid of certain books. The winner will be chosen by our final judge, Newbery medalist Richard Peck, and announced on Monday, April 4
For a complete list of judges and the books they’ve been assigned, and to follow the action of this winner-takes-all contest, visit www.sljbattleofthebooks.com.
SLJ's Battle of the Kids’ Books contest is the brainchild of three educators: Monica Edinger and Roxanne Feldman of the Dalton School in New York City and Jonathan Hunt, a school librarian in Modesto, CA. The competition was inspired by the Morning News’ Tournament of Books, an annual competition featuring the previous year’s best novels for adults.
This year’s contest is sponsored by HarperCollins Children's Books and Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

MOVE IT! MS Awareness Week March 14th -20 th Join the Movement to End MS
Delaware – Every hour, an American is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), a chronic disease of the central nervous system for which there is no cure. Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body and stops people from moving. For some, this means living with unpredictable symptoms that can come and go, such as numbness and blurred vision.
MS Awareness Week takes place March 14-20th, and the Delaware Chapter of the
National Multiple Sclerosis Society urges you to help raise awareness in support of the 1,500 Delawareans living with this unpredictable disease. Below is a list of planned events and other ways to get involved.
7am - 9 am: Movement event outside of Wilmington’s Central YMCA
