presents our FOURTH annual Battle of the Books

“America’s Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program for students…The purpose is simply to encourage students to read good books and have fun while competing with peers.”

Interested students will be part of a teams of 3rd & 4th grade students, or 5th & 6th grade students.  Each team will read from the book list of 20 total books.  In March, teams will come together for a gameshow- style competition tournament where they will work as team to answer questions about the books from the list.
