Red Clover Award


There were so many books to choose from, but here are the Red Clover Award 2016-2017 nominees!

And this year’s winner is…Shh! We Have a Plan by Chris Haughton! Here’s the final Red Clover Award vote tally.

There is no educator resource guide this year. We have uploaded activities to the Educator Resources page and will continue to update them as they become available.

Be sure to visit the Red Clover Award website where you’ll find lots of great links, activities and resources for this year’s nominees, along with past nominees and award winners. Thanks to committee members (and school librarians) Carol Scrimgeour and Carrie Speranza for all your hard work!

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.

The Red Clover Award is co-sponsored by the Vermont Center for the Book / Mother Goose Programs and the Vermont Department of Libraries. The Fall 2016 conference was co-sponsored by the Vermont School Library Association.
