Battle of the Books Team

Chloe made the Battle of the Books team for k-3rd!! YooHoo! According to her teacher, she's the first kindergartener to ever even attempt the tryout test, much less make the team!! She had 15 books that she read and then they had a test with questions from the books.

The team is kind of like quiz bowl (I think)--all the questions will be about the books. Below is the list of books she had to read for it. She's quite the little reader!! (I did not read them to her, she read them all by herself--but I did discuss them with her and asked her some questions. I was quite impressed with her comprehension and retention of what she had read!!)
