For the first time since 2008, the Battle of the Books commenced with a concentrated silence of fourth- and fifth-graders at the Suisun Elementary School multipurpose room Thursday.
The Battle of the Books is a competition that is concentrated on a pre-selected set of nine books. The goal is to answer questions that come from the books and earn points for your team. The winning team is the one that answers the most questions correctly in the competition.
