|Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program designed to encourage students to read quality literature.
The Battle of the Books program is suitable for individual schools as well as school districts. Purchase of the program grants schools a limited license to make copies of the materials for use within one school district for one school year.
How it all began
In the 1930's Battle of the Books was a Chicago radio program. Today it is a reading incentive program in elementary, middle and high schools across the country. All of the questions in the competition begin with the words "In which book" and the correct answer is always the title and author of the book. This program works at the individual school level as well as at the interscholastic and district wide levels. Classroom teachers, reading specialists and library media specialists spend many hours choosing books and writing questions for each year's battles. We are a team of library media specialists with many years experience in running district wide battles. We have chosen the books and written the questions for you.
