This reading program is for students in grades 3-6. A committee made up of school and public librarians select 20 books that have been published within the past 2 years for students to read from August to January. In mid-January, students in grades 3-6 across the state of Texas get a chance to vote for their favorite book that they have read. Once all of the tallies are in, one of the twenty nominated books will be the Texas Bluebonnet Award book for 2012-2013.
The requirements for students to vote for their favorite book are that students must read 5 of the twenty books and record it in the Bluebonnet binder in the library. I encourage students to read as many of these books as they can. Many students read all twenty!
This year's winner was The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger.
