2022-2023 Battle of the Books Committee

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. This year we will participating in the regional competition.  


Thank you to our family donors for funding the selection of this year's books for our library. We can't thank you enough for your support with literacy and the love and appreciation of books!

Congratulations to the Tigers for winning our school competition! We have one additional student who will be joining the team to make our team of 4 that represents our school in our upcoming Battle of the Books Regionals. The Regionals will take place on Thursday, March 23! Wish them good luck!


We are absolutely proud of ALL of our BOB members for reading, meeting, and/or competing since October! You are our shining stars! We hope everyone has enjoyed the books, the book talks, and the love of reading!
