Battle of the Books Update

By: Dr. Zeina Ghannem 

After Ramadan, 3 teams of each age group will lock in a battle of knowledge over Islamic books.  The teams will be carefully selected, through an examination on the assigned books, and come out ready to win.  The age groups consist of 5-7 years old, 8-10 years, and 11-14 years old.  The team members, after studying the books and being selected, will have their hand on the buzzer during the competition with 2 other teams, itching to press the button first and answer the question in order to receive points.
