Texas Bluebonnet Award Program

Texas Bluebonnet Award Program

The Texas Bluebonnet Award reading program was established in 1979 to motivate students in grades 3 through 6 to read outstanding new children’s literature. A committee of teachers and librarians choose the 20 books to be included on the Bluebonnet list each year. Students all across Texas who read five or more books on the list have the privilege of voting for their favorite book. This program is unique in that students choose the winning book, NOT adults!
