Battle of the Books


Battle of the Books is a free annual book tournament between our local elementary schools that promotes literacy and a life-long love of reading. Students in grades 3-6 compete in teams to read as many books from our booklist and test their knowledge.


Battle of the Books will take place in April 2020. More information will be shared as it becomes available.


Forest of Reading has created a new Non-Fiction category known as Yellow Cedar. This is the consolidation of the previous categories, Silver Birch Non-Fiction (grades 3-6) and the Red Maple Non-fiction (grades 7-8). The Yellow Cedar now encompasses Non-fiction titles for grades 4-8. Please check off the categories in which your school would like to participate.  Minimum of two categories must be selected.
