Note to Parents: The Oregon Battle of the Books is a voluntary program. These titles are selected with a wide range of reading levels and maturity in mind. You may feel that the content and/or theme of one or two of these titles are inappropriate for your child. We recommend that you read and discuss these books with your child. A book that stretches a child’s thinking is a great opportunity to discuss world events and your family’s values.
