The Texas Bluebonnet
Award (TBA) reading program was established in 1979 to encourage Texas children
to read more books, explore a variety of current books, develop powers of
discrimination, and identify their favorite books. Two committees within the
Texas Library Association (TLA) have the responsibility for selecting and
publicizing the books eligible for this annual award. All school libraries,
public libraries, and home school associations are encouraged to participate
in Texas Bluebonnet Award. The program is aimed at students in grades 3-6.
Participating students must read a minimum of five books from the current
master list before they may vote for their favorite title. Teachers and parents
are encouraged to read some of the books aloud. The author of the book receiving
the most votes statewide is declared the winner of the Texas Bluebonnet Award.

The 2009-2010 Texas
Lone Star Reading List is a recommended reading list developed by public and
school librarians from the Young Adult Round Table. The purpose of the list
is to encourage students in grades 6, 7, or 8 to explore a variety of current
books. The Lone Star List is intended for recreational reading, not to support
specific curriculum. Each book on the list has been favorably reviewed for
grades 6, 7, or 8 in a professional review source.
