Each year, the Wisconsin Educational Media & Technology Association (WEMTA) publishes a list of 20 books to be used in the statewide Battle of the Books. This list includes the titles for the Elementary Level Battle, grades 4-5, for the 2020-2021 school year that are available through the MORE system.
The statewide Battle of the Books program is designed to promote a love of reading among WI students. It encourages students to read a variety of books and remember information about the plots, characters, and settings of the books. Every question asked in a battle is answered by the title and author of the book and takes the form of: Name the book in which a horse and a boy are stranded on an island. It is a fun, academic-based competition that has been very successful in school districts throughout the state in encouraging students to read.
