The Battle of the Books is a reading competition open to 4th and 5th graders attending Avondale schools, Oakland Christian School, and Will Rogers Elementary. Students form teams of 4-6 members and read from their grade's selected list of titles. Teams will then compete against each other by answering questions designed to determine who remembers the most from what they read. This program is designed to strengthen literacy and promotes healthy attitudes towards teamwork and competition.
