Texas Bluebonnet Award update

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Texas Bluebonnet Award program this year. We had 3,592 students who read at least 5 books and were eligible to vote.

That's 17, 960 books read by students in grades 3-6. Fantastic!

The top five vote getters in MISD were:

1st -  The Case of Origami Yoda
2nd - Goal!
3rd - The Buddy Files: the Case of the Lost Boy
4th - Mirror Mirror: A Book of Reversible Verse
5th - Out of My Mind

The official winner was announced on the TLA website this morning. MISD students were right in line with all of the other kids who voted for The Case of Origami Yoda, the Texas Bluebonnet Award winner for 2012.

Here's a video from Tom Angleberger, the winning author. Should be a fun time at the Bluebonnet luncheon this year!


  1. He is very entertaining. I can't wait to share this with the students.

  2. I would have definitely put Out of My Mind as #1, but I liked Origami Yoda too :)
