What is OBOB?

OBOB is a voluntary reading program for students in 3rd through 12th grades across the state of Oregon.  Participants form teams of 4-5 students, read books from the 22/23 official OBOB title list, and compete to prove their knowledge and comprehension of characters and events in the books.  Teams can compete at the school, regional and state level. OBOB is managed and supported by parent volunteers.  All Beverly Cleary 3rd-8th grade students are eligible to participate.
