Award Winning Books
- Dorothy Canfield Fisher - Each year kids in Vermont, 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.
- 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.

I am a voracious reader. You have to read to survive. People who read for pleasure are wasting their time. Reading isn't fun; it's indispensable. Woody Allen
