Battle of the Books is a national reading motivation and comprehension program for all grade levels. The goal of this program, BOB, is to encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading, broaden reading interests, increase reading comprehension, and enjoy occasional book talks with their team over lunch. The teams consists of 3 or 4 students and a coach. Each member reads at least 6 of the 12 books that were chosen by the Alaska Association of School Librarians. The Brentwood library has a few copies of each title for the students. There are no fees involved in this program.
The local battle will be held after spring break and the winning teams will compete against Chappelow and University middle school students here at Brentwood in May.
