Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading competition designed for elementary school students. Student teams were given a list of 64 books to read. Each team needs to be familiar with events, characters, and the authors of the books to answer the questions. Students also give a three-minute Book Talk about one title from the list. Each team will draw a book title and will be given fifteen minutes to prepare their presentation about the book.
