March is a time for sunshine, flower blossoms, and Madness—March Madness that is!  Here at KidsQuest, we won’t be following college basketball.  Instead, we are participating in March Book Madness (MBM), a bracket-style competition between picture books!

MBM was created to combine the love of competition and passion for reading.  Much like regular March Madness brackets, we will start with the “sweet” 16 books, all falling into this year’s theme of “Compelling Characters.”  Each week, the books will compete in one-on-one matches, with winners competing again until only one book is left standing.

You can read a selection of MBM books at the top of the climber in our Cloud Basket.  Climb all the way up to read with a staff member and vote on your favorites!  You can also vote on our Instagram stories and keep up with the national MBM winners on our Bracket Wall.

Tell us what book you think should win!  Use the hashtags #2018 MBM and #kidsquestmuseum to let us know which book compels you most.
