America's Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for students in 3rd thru 12th grades. Students read books and come together in teams of four or five to demonstrate their abilities and to test their knowledge of the books they have read. The student competitions are usually similar to the TV series Family Feud or Whiz Kids styles of competitions. However, the structure, format, and rules of the competitions may vary depending on the educational goals, student needs, local resources, and personal preferences at various school sites, school districts, county libraries, or offices of education.
Students get a BRAG TAG for every book they have read on their grade level list.
