This week the winners of The STEAM School’s Battle of the Books were announced to cheers from all! There were so many amazing titles to choose from and many of the races were really tight.
In the Picture Book category, the final two contestants were Pete the Cat vs The Pigeon Needs A Bath, and the winner is The Pigeon Needs A Bath!
In the Juvenile Fiction category, the choice came down to Wonder vs Percy Jackson. Percy Jackson in the semi finals had won against both Holes and The Harry Potter series after a tie the previous week against Harry Potter. The final winner is Percy Jackson! Possibly many new fans created after seeing the musical hosted at our local high school earlier this month!
In the Graphic Novel category, the final contest came down to the Wings of Fire graphic novel vs My Hero Academia. There was some minor grumbling when Wings of Fire appeared in two different categories but it is a wild favorite here at STEAM School and was declared the final winner in this category!
Finally, in our Young/Adult Fiction competition, the choice came down to Norse Mythology vs Mortal Engines but STEAM students were split evenly in their voting and we had a tie!
Here are the brand new books purchased for our school library.
Looking forward to next year and hearing about all the wonderful books the kids read between now and then!
