For Kids Red Clover Picture Book Award

The Red Clover Picture Book Award, started in 1997, is co-sponsored by Mother Goose Programs, Windham County Reads, the Vermont Department of Libraries and the Vermont Department of Education. Ten picture books are selected as candidates for the award, and students in Kindergarten to 4th Grade vote for their favorite in the spring.

Brownell Library has a three sets of the books for students to check out, thanks to funding from the Friends of Brownell Library. This year's books are on a special shelf in the Picture Book Room, along with Red Clover Books from previous years.

The library sponsors a monthly series of Red Clover Picture Book Programs for Homeschoolers, from November to March. (Find dates on our calendar.) Two books are presented each month, with related activities. Students vote for their favorite in March. Any student whose school does not participate in Red Clover may also vote at Brownell.
