Imagine a sports bracket: a visual that represents teams of different rankings and locations competing against each other, with the winners moving on to the next round. Now replace the sports teams with books, and you have the beginnings of a Battle of the Books!
A Battle of the Books takes a format that is already familiarto most students and puts a fun literary twist on it. It provides teachers and students with all kinds of opportunities; you can evaluate books you’ve already read, campaign for favorites with book talks and posters, and introduce kids to undiscovered
adventures. In short, a Battle of the Books is the engaging, fun-filled literacy initiative you’ve been waiting for!
