• About Battle of the Books

    Battle of the Books, or BOB, is a district wide reading competition for Judson ISD fifth graders.  Students read 10 books from a preselected list. In March, students form teams of no more than four students, meet up at a high school, and “battle” groups from other Judson ISD elementary schools.

    There are several rounds where teams with the highest score advance until just one team remains.  The group that knows the most about the details of the books and answers the most questions correctly wins! 

    Judson ISD librarians believe healthy competition among our book lovers is a great way to show appreciation for literacy.
