The Mensa Foundation’s Excellence in Reading program has helped to encourage a love of reading among thousands of children in homes, schools, and libraries across the globe. For that reason, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to use the long-loved Excellence in Reading book lists as the basis for our 2024 Mensa For Kids Battle of the Books. To kick off the new year, visitors to MensaForKids.org have the chance to vote in a bracket-style tournament to determine the ultimate literary champion.
Which book will have what it takes to win this literary challenge? Vote every week to help your favorites go through. The challenge is open to Mensa members and non-members, so share with a friend and start debating now. May the best book win!
There are two concurrent tournaments – an Excellence in Reading Bracket Tournament made up of books from the Excellence in Reading grades 4-12 list and a Junior Excellence in Reading Bracket Tournament made up of books from the K-3 list. Voting is currently underway with your votes deciding which books advance in each round.
Winners will be announced on World Book Day, March 2!
