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. This program is unique in that students choose the winning book, NOT adults!

Guidelines for Texas Bluebonnet Program at Frank Library 2017-2018:
· Students who read (or have read to them) five (5) or more Bluebonnet books and completed a quiz by January 13, 2017 with a 70% or higher on the book will be able to vote for their favorite Bluebonnet book and receive a Bluebonnet pencil.

· Students who more than 5 books and completed a quiz on the book by January 13, 2018 will receive a certificate at the end of the program and be invited to the Bluebonnet Party in May.
