Last night was my first time to attend the Battle of the Bluebonnets! (As the illustrator of the 2020-2021 Bluebonnet Award Master List book, From an Idea to Disney, by Lowey Bundy Sichol)
34 RRISD schools, grades 3-5, competing in teams of four, answering questions about the 2019-2020 books.
The gym was PACKED! This was so, so cool! The kids were amazing and did an awesome job!
They answered by holding up Plicker QR codes. They rotated the sheet of paper the code is on to represent A,B,C, or D which was then scanned and showed up on the computer. Apparently this is pretty normal in schools, but I’d never seen it before. (The future is now!)
A huge honor to be invited along with Chris Barton, Donna Janell Bowman, and Meredith Davis.
Thanks to Round Rock ISD, Kristen Fournier, and all of the other librarians. You’re my heroes!
