Kid's Book Lists & Reading

Award Winning Books

  • Red Clover
    • The Red Clover Award promotes the reading and discussion of the best of contemporary picture books in nearly all of Vermont's elementary schools.  Each year over 20,000 K-4 students read, or have read to them, the ten nominated books.  See this year's nominees.

  • Dorothy Canfield Fisher

    • Each year kids in Vermont in grades 4 to 8 are encouraged to read books from a list of thirty titles. In April, they vote on their favorite title, and the book that receives the most votes is the winner of the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award.  ** NEW this year, this Award will be renamed.  Students will have the chance to put forward suggestions for the New Award title! Check with the library about how to do this.  **
