Bellview Elementary School library ‘Top 10’

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. Roughly once per month, I like to create flyers that showcase these often-used resources.

Featured titles in this year’s Oregon Battle of the Books captured all 10 slots on the October “Top 10” list. The books are:
  1. The Sasquatch Escape by Suzanne Selfors (FIC SEL)
  2. A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park (FIC PAR)
  3. Mountain Dog by Margarita Engle (FIC ENG)
  4. Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein (FIC GRA)
  5. Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor (FIC NAY)
  6. The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan (FIC RIO)
  7. No Talking by Andrew Clements (FIC CLE)
  8. How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell (FIC COW)
  9. Mission Unstoppable by Dan Gutman (FIC GUT)
  10. Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell (FIC RUN)
Oregon Battle of the Books is a statewide voluntary reading motivation and comprehension program sponsored by the Oregon Association of School Libraries in conjunction with a grant from the Library Services and Technology Act. Students form teams and compete to correctly answer questions about the books.

OBOB has strong support from the Bellview PTO, which purchased the books for our school library. The books’ “Top 10” prominence coincides with a strong interest among students in reading titles, forming teams and getting ready for practices.
