The Last Shots and The Winners!

What an exciting March this has been! There were some incredibly major upsets in the NCAA tournament. My brackets are shot to pieces. Not ONE of the teams I predicted for the Final Four made it! Ah, well, that's what makes it so exciting.
The March Madness Free Throw Contest has also been exciting. Super Simran established an early lead and has kept it all month but there has been a lot of competition in the back court between Michael, Ryan, Davidson and Soccer Shawn. Here are the final free throws and the winners:

Super Simran

Junie B., First Grader (at last!) By:Barbara Park

Junie B Jones is finally in first grade. She is nervous because it is a new classroom and new people and she does not have any friends. The worst thing is that all the stuff on the blackboard is blurry. She might have too get glasses. Junie B does not want glasses. Her parents are going to make her get them. I really liked this book because it was also funny for me. Read this book because I know you will like it! :^)

Junie B. Jones Is a Graduation Girl By: Barbara Park

Junie B is graduating from kindergarten. Her teacher gives everyone a white Graduation dress. Her teacher tells everyone to wait till "The Big Day" to open the Graduation gown. You know Junie B so you might know that she opened her gown before "The Big Day". She ruins her gown before the big day too. Will Junie B's Graduation be a complete disaster? I loved this book because it was interesting. Read the book to find out more! :^)

WOW!!! SUPER SIMRAN is the undisputed winner!! YAAAAYYYY!!! Super Simran, you can come to the Myers Park library and claim your prize. Or, if you can't, I'll make sure you get it. Same for you, all you second placers. And you too, Sarah! You're our third-place winner.

Hey, wait a minute--we have FOUR boys in second place! That's Michael, Ryan, Soccer Shawn and Davidson. Congratulations, guys! This has never happened before. Well, this is great! It shows that lots of boys enjoy reading and that's what this blog is all about. We have lots of prizes in the box, so there will be plenty for all of you. As I said, come to the Myers Park library and get your prizes or I will find a way to get them to you.

Hey, wait another minute--Super Simran is the first-place winner and that means--

that means---

---a girl is the overall winner at the BOYS Read blog!! This has never happened before either. Fortunately, the Iron Guy is not made of inflexible metal (the iron is only for toughness!) and can enjoy any new situation. I think we can all be happy that kids, boys and girls, enjoy reading. In fact, this just goes to show that girls can enjoy good reads as much as boys. And--celebrating a girl winning the Boys Read contest shows just how good-natured boys really are, giving the world more proof of the awesome greatness of boys!!

Seriously, though, this has been a great contest and I thank all of you for writing in. Now don't think this means you have to stop!! We still want to hear about good reads! So keep sending in those reviews and I'll keep posting them.OK? OK!!
