The Global Reading Challenge is a battle of the books program that encourages children to have fun and enjoy the sport of reading.

More than 2,500 fourth- and fifth-graders from more than 40 Seattle Public Schools studied ten books to prepare for the Global Reading Challenge.

The teams of children take part in a “Quiz Bowl” game to test their knowledge of the books.

Ten teams of fourth- and fifth-graders from Seattle Public Schools competed for the top spots in Seattle at the city final of the 2012 Global Reading Challenge on Tuesday, March 27 at the Central Library.
