OBOB - Oregon Battle of the Books

Oregon Battle of the Books

Students and Families,

Welcome to OBOB! This is going to be a fun year of reading new books with friends and then participating in a fun competition. By now, students have formed a team of 4-5 members as well as started reading some of the OBOB book selections. Below we have listed a few things to think about as students continue to read.


  • Read, Read, Read!
  • Meet with your teams at recess, discuss at lunch, or work together during library check-out to ensure that your team is on track!
  • We will meet twice more as a whole OBOB group before the tournament begins.


  • Encourage your child to read!
  • Support your child by discussing what they are reading with them.
  • This year, teams are run by the students. Ask your child what you can do to help them.

Upcoming Dates:

  • January: Mock battles then the tournament begins! More details will be sent home as it gets closer.
  • March: Winning team will represent Pleasant Hill Elementary at Regionals.
