Note to Parents: The Oregon Battle of the Books is a voluntary program. OBOB welcomes students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. The titles are selected with the reading level and maturity of 4th and 5th graders in mind. You may feel that the content and/or theme of one or two of these titles are inappropriate for your child. We recommend that you read and discuss these books with your child. A book that stretches a child’s thinking is a great opportunity to discuss world events and your family’s values.
