Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is a district program that encourages 5th grade students to read by offering them exciting, friendly competition based on their knowledge of a group of books. The goal of the program is to encourage interactive reading of excellent and varied children's fiction and discussion of these books by teams of four to six children. It is also hoped that the book list will encourage students to read books/genres they might not have read, to consider diverse points of view, to think critically, and to broaden their horizons.
