Grades 3 – 5  ::  Battle of the Books  ::  2019 – 2020 School Year

These titles are selected with a wide range of reading levels and maturity in mind. You may feel that the content and/or theme of one or two of these titles is inappropriate for your child. We have a permission slip that lists the titles of the books and a short summary for each participant.  They will need to have a parent / guardian signature  before they will be allowed to participate. The OBOB committee recommends that you read and discuss these books with your child. A book that stretches a child’s thinking is a great opportunity to discuss world events and your family’s values.  Get Reading !!!
