Battle of the Books


Welcome to America's Battle of the Books!

Walpole middle schools participate in America's Battle of the Books (ABB), a voluntary reading incentive program for students in grades 6-8. Students read books and come together to demonstrate their abilities and test their knowledge of the books they have read. The competitions are similar in style to the TV series Family Feud, but the structure and format of the competitions may vary depending on the needs, resources and personal preferences at various school sites or at the regional/state competition levels.
