Bluebonnet Book Club is an after-school activity offered to 4th-6th graders. During the fall, we meet weekly and focus on reading a book that is on the 2016-2017 Bluebonnet Nominee reading list. This year we are reading Mike Jung's Unidentified Suburban Object. At our weekly club meetings, we gather in the library to read, discuss, and do fun activities that tie into the book we are reading.
For those parents who aren’t already familiar with the Texas Bluebonnet Award Reading Program, it is a voluntary reading program run by the Texas Library Association for 3rd- 6th graders across the state of Texas. Each year the Bluebonnet Award is given to the author of one of the books from the current year’s reading list. Students all over our state cast their vote in late January for the book that was their favorite. Eligibility to vote is granted when a student reads, or listens to, at least five of the twenty books from the list.
