ontinuing a winning tradi-
tion, students from Akiva
Hebrew Day School and
Yeshiva Beth Yehudah won top honors
in this year's Southfield Public Library
Battle of the Books March 19-20.
Competing among nearly 300 young
readers in the fourth- and fifth-grade
competition and more than 200 in
the middle school challenge, students
from both Southfield schools learned
the value of teamwork and the benefits
and enjoyment of books.
Akiva students on Word Girls,
managed by Renee Philips of West
Bloomfield and Susan Kresch of Oak
Park, took first place in the middle
school competition, with Rock 'N'
Read, managed by Deborah Kovsky-
Apap of Southfield, in second. Fourth-
and fifth-grade team, Cooler Than U,
comprised of Akiva students, along

with one Yeshiva friend, was second in
their grade category. All the teams are
repeat winners, having placed in previ-
ous years.
Akiva fourth-graders on the Book
Bandits team, managed by Ahuva
Rogers and Sarah Kornblum, both of
Southfield, came in on top in their very
first Battle of the Books competition.
"This was a team win," Kornblum
said. "The boys learned how to lis-
ten to one another, how to agree on
answers together, and how to share
and accept responsibility"
From the time the assigned book
lists were released in November,
members of teams have been reading,
re-reading, studying and memoriz-
ing details. During the competition,
at Southfield Pavilion, teams had 20
seconds to discuss and record answers
to dozens of questions. Those with the
most correct answers in each grade
category won prizes, including medals
and books.
