    2018-2019 Battle of the Books List 

    The Battle of the Books is a fun way to get students to read a variety of books and

    learn to comprehend what they are reading. It is a great way to promote
    recreational reading. The program is a "quiz bowl" type of game in which teams
    try to identify titles and authors of the 15 Sunshine State Young Readers Award
    Books. Questions are based on plots, settings and characters. This program is
    introduced to teachers in grades 3 through 5 by the library information specialist.
    Participating students are given several months to read the 15 books and quiz
    each other on what they have read. Qualifying tests are given during the months
    of March and April. School battles and subsequent regional battles determine which
    schools will be represented at the district battle. The first-place team carries
    home a traveling trophy to be housed at its school until the next year’s battle.
