The Texas Bluebonnet Award (TBA) program was established in 1979 to encourage Texas children to read more books, explore a variety of current books, develop powers of discrimination, and to identify their favorite books.

The award further provides an opportunity to honor and encourage imaginative authors who create books with high appeal to children.

The Master List: The Texas Bluebonnet Award committee is responsible for selection of the books on each year's Master List.
Suggestions are solicited from librarians, teachers, parents, students and other interested persons. A new list of no more than twenty books is released each year by November. In selecting titles, the committee considers student interests, relevant content, reputable reviews, and literary quality. Both fiction and nonfiction books are represented.  The author must be a living U.S. citizen or an author who resides and publishes in the United States. Books considered for the master list must have been published in the United States. Only titles published within the three years prior to the master list release date are considered. Textbooks and new editions of existing titles are not eligible.
