2023-2024 Book List

The Battle of the Books is a district wide program that gets students reading and competing with other 4th and 5th grade students from other schools. It begins with a committee of teachers and staff that select books appropriate for this age level. Students spend time reading 8 books and preparing for a variety of specifically detailed questions about each of the books. Students spend time meeting weekly or every other week with a selection of Vanderburg teachers to discuss the books. After the readings, the schools conduct their own competitions consisting of 2 initial rounds, a semi-finals round, followed by the finals to determine the one team of 4 to send to the district's regional competition. One team from each of the regions go on to compete at the district level.


Congratulations to The Chapter Champs for winning the school competition of Battle of the Books! We'd like to recognize Sophia, Charlie, and Joseph for making it as the winning team! Marshall will be joining their team as the 4th member that will go to Regionals. Good luck, team! 

We are proud of ALL of the Battle of the Books participants! Reading 8 books and competing takes dedication and a love of reading. We hope you had fun and Battle of the Books 4th graders, we hope to see you again, next year!

UPDATE: Congratulations to The Chapter Champs for winning 2nd place in our Battle of the Books Regionals! We are SO proud of them!
