Battle of the Kids' Books

For some its the Super Bowl or for others its the Final Four or perhaps the World Series or maybe the Masters Tournament but this librarian will take  Battle of the Kids' Books  anytime, anyday.  School Library Journal's Battle of the Kids' Books is a competition between 16 of the very best books for young people of the year, judged by some of the biggest names in children's books.

Be prepared and ready; the Battle is about to begin for 2011.  The Undead Poll will close March 6, 2011 with opening ceremonies beginning on March 8, 2011.  In the three weeks following those ceremonies each of the three rounds will take place until on April 4, 2011, when the Big Kahuna casts the final vote. 

Given the titles and judges selected for this year it is going to be exciting to say the least.  Observe or participate as a student, classroom teacher or parent.  Read along with the judges.  See if you can pick a winner for each round.  Can you pick the final winner?
