Oregon Battle of the Books, or OBOB in our neck of the woods

Published December 22, 2019 by neverwearmatchingsox

I’m sure that I have written about OBOB before.  A state wide voluntary reading competition that students in grades 3-12 can compete in.  I am a coach for both 3-5th grades and 6-8th grades.  It seems that I won’t have a 6-8 team so I have stopped reading those titles but I didn’t get through a few:


These are the three titles I read from the 6-8 list and I enjoyed them all.  I’ll write about Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus and it’s follow up Momentous Events in the Life of a Cactus.

The elementary (3-5) list this year is very engaging and also very different from one another.




These are just three of the books for the 3-5th grade list.  There is something for everyone.  If you have kids in school, I sure hope that your state/city/county has some version of Battle of the Books.
