Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading program for 4th and 5th grade students across the state. The purpose is to encourage students to read good books and have fun while doing it. Students will read from a pre-selected list of books . 

Students who have read a sufficient number of books are eligible to take a 2 part quiz to try and earn a spot on the Ogden Stingray Battle of the Books team. The team will consist of 6 members. These students will also have the opportunity to practice for the "Battle", discuss authors, share favorite passages, work on vocabulary and other book related events. This team will represent Ogden at the NHCS Battle of the Books competition in May.
