What is Battle of the Books?

Elementary Battle of the Books is a program that challenges students to read a selection of novels and compete as a team in answering various questions.  The purpose of Elementary Battle of the Books is to motivate students to read, monitor their own comprehension, and become active participants in book discussions.  Battle of the Books encourages students to read quality literature on a variety of topics and themes,  The books are written at different levels that will both challenge and entertain students.  Through Elementary Battle of the Books, we strive to promote a love for literature and the important character education goals of teamwork, respect, and good sportsmanship.

Have a good attitude, excellent behavior, consider teammates’ suggestions, and follow directions.

*Team members are expected to meet personal and classroom reading goals in order to continue with the EBOB team.  


We can only take 12 students to the competition, so students should try their hardest to meet the guidelines. Students who read the most books and demonstrate knowledge of the books will compete at the district level. Only 6 team members will play in each competition round.  Team members who have the most books read and the most questions answered correctly during practice will be part of the top 12 team.
