Battle of the Books 2019-2020

Salt Lake City School District will be holding their third annual Battle of the Books in March 2020 for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students!  Books can be found at the public library or purchased from a local bookstore.

FYI: Battle of the Books is "a voluntary reading incentive program for students grades 4-6. The purpose is simply to encourage students to read good books as a community." A "Battle" is like a College Bowl or Geography Bee and is scheduled in March 2020 after school hours; the exact time is still to be determined. Teams of four students (and one alternative) will answer questions based on the school year's books. The school team with the most correct answers wins the Battle for the school year. More details to come at the beginning of 2019-2020 School Year!

Below is the list of books included in next year’s Battle of the Books competition. You do not need to participate in the battle to read the books. They are great recommendations for reading.  HAPPY READING!
