About Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books 2024-2025

We are excited for another exciting year of Battle of the Books at Veterans Park!  If your child loves to read and enjoys friendly competition, this club is for you!  Each year, FCPS hosts a Battle of the Books competition among elementary schools in the district.  Participants compete in a “battle” in April over questions comprised from 12 different chapter books they have read throughout the year.  This is a voluntary reading incentive program open to students in grades 3-5.  Below are the books featured in this year’s competition:


Dogtown by Applegate

Heroes: A Novel of Pearl Harbor by Gratz

Wildoak by C.C. Harrington
