The Texas Bluebonnet Award is a statewide reading program designed for students in grades 3-6. The program promotes the reading of a variety of books in fiction and nonfiction selected with student’s interest and relevant content in mind. Students participating in the program are required to read a minimum of five books from the current master list to vote for their favorite title. This unique reading program has proved popular with Texas children, with nearly 188,000 votes cast in the 2011 program.
The 2012-2013 Bluebonnet list contains twenty books selected by the Texas Bluebonnet Award committee.

Parents, if your child missed the voting deadline for the Texas Bluebonnet Award, please encourage him or her to continue reading the selected books for their value as personal enrichment.
