A team of Lake Forest Park Elementary fourth- and fifth-graders won the Shoreline School District Global Reading Challenge. The "Home Run Readers" coached by librarian Merrilyn Tucker edged teams from six other Shoreline elementary schools.
Lake Forest Park advances to the regional challenge on March 10 at the Kingsgate Library in Kirkland.
The Global Reading Challenge is a cooperative effort between King County Library System and local public school districts. This is a Battle of the Books-style program that allows fourth- and fifth-graders across the county to work together as a team and challenge other schools to correctly answer questions about the selected books. Each year, King County Library System children's librarians select 10 titles in a wide range of reading levels especially suited to the interests of young readers.
