Bellview Elementary School library ‘Top 10’

It came as no surprise to me that Oregon Battle of the Books featured titles occupy all 10 places this month on the Bellview library Top 10. Students have formed teams and are assigning responsibilities to read each title on the list. And in Bellview library, I am continually asked if I have this-or-that book.

On the Bellview Top 10 this month:
  1. Rules by Cynthia Lord (FIC LOR)
  2. Sasquatch by Roland Smith (FIC SMI)
  3. The Trouble with Chickens by Doreen Cronin (FIC CRO)
  4. Tales from the Odyssey by Mary Pope Osborne (FIC OSB)
  5. A Nest for Celeste by Henry Cole (FIC COL)
  6. The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate, Katherine. (FIC APP)
  7. 7. Tales of a fourth grade nothing Blume, Judy. FIC BLU
  8. Gaby, Lost and Found Angela Cervantes, January 2013. FIC CER
  9. Kizzy Ann Stamps by Jen Watts (FIC WAT)
  10. Swindle by Gordon Korman (FIC KOR)
OBOB is run by volunteers through the Oregon Association of School Libraries. Administrators select titles in three divisions each year, for students in third through 12th grades.

Bellview school receives strong support from parent-volunteers, who purchase books and laminate them before bringing them to the school library. Parent-volunteers also coordinate team practices and the school competition.

The Bellview Elementary School library Top 10 represent the most often-checked-out books during the previous 30 days, as tracked by the Follett-Destiny online public access catalog.
