All 16 titles in the third- to fifth-grade division, Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB), are available for check-out from the Bellview Elementary School library.

OBOB volunteer Suzanne Zapf brought copies of the final three books — The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo (2004), Who was Neil Armstrong? by Roberta Edwards (2008) and Birchbark House by Louise Erdrich (1999) — to the library on Friday.

Through Zapf’s efforts, the books were barcoded, labeled and covered with protective laminate — just in time to be checked out and read during Thanksgiving weekend.

Third- to fifth-grade division titles also include:

  • Abraham Lincoln by Mary Pope Osborne, 2011.
  • Clementine by Sara Pennypacker, 2008.
  • Dear Mr. Henshaw by Beverly Cleary, 1983.
  • Eleven by Patricia Reilly Giff, 2008.
  • Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins, 2003.
  • Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai, 2011.
  • Into the Firestorm by Deborah Hopkinson, 2006.
