Battle of the Books 2019-2020 SSYRA List
Battle of the Books is for students in grades 3-5. The list of books comes from the Sunshine State Young Reader's Award titles. The books change every year. Students are expected to read and take the Reading Counts Quizzes on a minimum of 8 of the 15 chosen books in order to take the qualifying test. Students will need to know titles and authors of the books as well as content questions from the books. Taking the qualifying test does not guarantee making a team however. Those who score well enough will be placed on teams to compete in our school Battle of the Books competition. The winning team at the school level will go on to compete at the Regional Competition.
