In the spirit of this year’s March Madness basketball series, W.S. Mount Elementary School third grade students took part in a literary-themed book bracket.

Based on student suggestions and teacher nominations, a bracket of the top 16 books were displayed on a large board in the school’s main hallway. In class, the students voted each week on their favorite choice, which spanned categories such as picture, informational, mystery, historical fiction and graphic novels. This year’s book of the year was “I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic, 1912” by Lauren Tarshis.
