The Texas Bluebonnet Award (TBA) 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.
The author of the book receiving the most votes statewide is declared the winner of the Texas Bluebonnet Award.
