Louisiana Young Readers' Choice
This year, students will be encouraged to read from a list of books called the Louisiana Young
Readers’ Choice (LYRC) nominees. These are books recommended by the Louisiana State Library.
Reading these books is OPTIONAL. Students who read and pass the test on these books should
add them to their 40 Book Challenge log and use them toward their AR goal.

Election Day: Students who read and pass the test on at least THREE of the titles by January 10th will be allowed to vote for their favorite book on a real voting machine in the spring and enjoy a voting celebration in the library.
Read 5 of the titles:
Battle of the Books: Students who read at least FIVE of the titles will be allowed to join a team for the Battle of the Books (BOB). Students will compete on teams against each other school-wide. The winning team from NCJH will compete against other area schools in a tournament.
