Posted 05/23/2019 11:30PM
For those rising third through sixth graders who are looking for summer reading ideas, we are happy to report that the book lists for next year's Battle of the Books contest are now posted. There are separate lists for grades 3-4 and grades 5-6. Each list consists of 20 excellent titles, a mix of classic and new, selected by the America's Battle of the Books organization.
Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for students in grades 3-6. The first Silver Oak Battle of the Books was held in 2012. The format is a game show venue where two teams of students compete to answer questions related to books read over the summer. This year's Battle of the Books took place in March. Next year, the tentative timing for the Battle is late January. Of course it can't hurt to start reading the books over the summer!
