Texas Bluebonnet Award

 

Every year, the Texas Library Association selects 20 books (published in the previous year) that represent the best in children’s literature. Students in 3rd-5th grade who have read five of these books are given the opportunity to vote for their favorite title. The results are collected throughout the state and a state winner is named. At Heather Glen, rewards are given for every five books read. The Texas Bluebonnet Award website has more information:
