Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is a literacy program that encourages learners to enjoy reading, book discussions, and analyses.  4th and 5th graders are invited to participate in our club and try out for our competitive teams. Our season ends in a competition against 4th and 5th graders from local schools and is hosted by St. Margaret’s Episcopal School.  The questions for the tournament are details from one of the 20-book reading list.  The answers consist of both the correct title and the correct author.  Books for BOB are chosen by librarians, teachers, and parents from all participating schools.  We strongly encourage parents to read these books with their children, as only you know what is appropriate for your family.

2024-25 Key Information:

The Battle of the Books Tournament will be March 25, 2025 at St. Margaret's Episcopal School in San Juan Capistrano. More details and sign-up sheet available in the fall.
