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.
