• What is Battle of the Books?

    Elementary Battle of the Books (EBoB) is sponsored by the North Carolina Association of School Librarians.  It is a program designed to encourage reading and expose students to quality literature by prominent authors.  In a game show format, team members answer questions from selected books in a competition against teams from other Pitt County elementary schools. 

    Who is the coach for the WHR team?

    Who can participate in EBoB?

    Any student in 4th or 5th grade can try out for the WHR BoB team.

    *Meet deadlines for reading and testing on all the books on the book list.
