About BOTB

Questions will be recall and recognition.
  • A complete set of rules can be found on the Battle of the Books Resources Page.
  • The questions for each grade level will be based on 10 books: five fiction and five non-fiction. The books have been carefully chosen by this, and previous, committees. We have chosen half non-fiction to support the emphasis of building knowledge and reading texts carefully for comprehension and factual learning.
  • There will be trophies and banners awarded to the winning schools for 1st and 2nd Place at each grade level. 3rd and 4th Place will receive banners.
  • Trophies and banners will be passed from one year to the next to the winning school.
