TBA-2012 Texas Bluebonnet Award

The Texas Bluebonnet Award reading program was created in 1979 to inspire Texas children to read, and explore a variety of books. Children across the state participate in Bluebonnet Reading through their registered schools or public libraries. Those who read, or listen to, at least five of the twenty books are eligible to vote for their favorite book. This vote helps select the winner of the Texas Bluebonnet Award. Voting takes place in January of each year.
