Field Underground Readers

Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books

5th Grade Reading Program

The Field Battle of the Books program is designed to encourage recreational reading, goal setting, working on comprehension skills, and the satisfaction and fun that comes from practicing and working together on a task.  The various battles will be based on the books in the 2019 Caudill  Young Readers Program. The teams will earn points during the battle by responding to a question with the correct title of the book and the author.  The Field Champion Team will represent Field School at the Crosstown Battle of the Books.

The 2019 Battle will be based on selected titles from the 2019 Caudill List.

The Battle of the Books program has a long history dating back to a radio program sponsored by the Chicago Public Library in the early 1940’s.
