Battle of the Books

The Battle of the Books is a district-wide reading challenge. Students (grades 4-6) who read at least 8 out of the 20 books and complete the online summary form will be able to participate in the school Battle of the Books competition in late winter 2021. Students will compete individually in a question and answer format about the 20 assigned books. The more books you read, the better you'll do! The top four school winners will represent Bonneville, competing as a team during the district Battle of the Books in 2021. The district battle is usually in March.

The Battle of the Books is a competition, but most importantly, it creates excitement about high quality children's literature. There are a variety of books, so everyone will find something that they like. The books can be found in the Elementary Battle of the Books collection on Sora. They are also available for checkout in our library. See the collection in Destiny Discover for easy access. Make sure to complete the online form when you finish a battle book!
