Battle of the Books

Point Vicente is one of the charter Palos Verdes schools fielding a team in the Battle of the Books! This program is a wonderful opportunity for book lovers - and an incentive for students needing a nudge - to read good books and share them with peers!


Battle of the Books is for- 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders who love to read, and for parents who want to see their children reading high quality books.


The next Battle of the Books Meetings will be

January 23, February 13, March 13, and April 10 at the Pt.Vicente Library. 


The Final Battle will be Saturday April 29th at Soleado.


BOB 2022-2023 List
Here is the list of books for Battle of the Books for next year. You can get started reading them now, and that way you will be able to read more of the books. This is not the order that we will be reading them, but you can start to read them in any order that you want.
*The list is subject to change before the fall. (it would only be one or two titles)
