Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is open to all students in Grades 4-6 and Grade 3 with a teacher recommendation. Students in the BOB program are required to individually read a total of ten books through the course of six months and become “experts” on each of them. 

The students meet on a weekly basis to discuss details of the books and are also required to complete a Scholastic Reading Counts quiz for each book they complete and pass with an 80%. This ensures the students are not only reading the books, but comprehending them as well. On the day of the big battle, students work in teams to answer over 200 different questions about the books. Each answer must be given by reciting both the title and author of the book. The 2016-17 book list is below:


  • Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
  • Ralph S. Mouse by Beverly Cleary
  • Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney
  • The Million Dollar Shot by Dan Gutman
  • Worth by A. LaFaye
