Buckaroo Book Award Book Lists
Sponsored by the Wyoming Library Association and the Wyoming State Reading Council, the Buckaroo Book Award will provide the opportunity for Wyoming children in grades Kindergarten through third to select favorite books they have read or have listened to and to honor the authors of these books.
Its purpose is to help Wyoming students in grades K-3:
- Become acquainted with the best contemporary authors.
- Become aware of the qualities of good books.
- Accustom younger children to concepts of choice, critical reading, and voting procedures which will help them participate in choosing other book awards.
- To honor an author whose book has been enjoyed by Wyoming children.
For more information contact the Wyoming Buckaroo Book Award Committee.
