    What is Battle of the Books?

     

    Battle of the books in a nation-wide competition where children read books and then test themselves on their knowledge about those books. These books are from a wide variety of authors and genres and are a great way to introduce your child to new types of books! In the virtual classrooms, you will find the books linked to videos or audio of at least the first chapter being read. Many of the books are available on tape at your local library online. Your child already has their library card simply by being a student! Their number is their student number and their pin in the last four digits of the phone number you have on file. If you have any questions for us, please let us know!
