During this segment we’ll read a short 1-2 paragraph story and ask questions about the story. If you believe you know the answer to the question, e-mail us at StoryBoardIPR@gmail.com. Those of you who submit correct answers will be entered in a drawing to win the Book of the Week. Have your answer in by Thursday.
