Great Children's Novel Challenge

Pick up your reading list of classic/contemporary literature at the Children's Service Desk or print it from the link above. Review eight books in this 17 week window and receive an assortment of small incentive prizes, as well as a drawing entry for a special completion prize.

Four novels must be from the library's list. You may listen to audiobooks. You must be registered in order to earn any prizes/incentives. If you have participated in the past you may participate again, but you must read and review different books.

Reviews must answer the following three questions, and do not need to be on library supplied paper:

1. What was your favorite/least favorite part of this book?
2. What was the conflict in the book?
3. How was the conflict resolved?

Reviews should be at least eight full length sentences long. Please be sure to include your full name and phone number on every review you submit. Reviews may be turned in one at a time or all at once. Every review will be read by the children's librarian. All books reviewed must be novels and must be at the participant's reading level.

If you have questions, call Ellen, the school-age librarian, at 920-832-6020 or email
