      Glen Rose Intermediate students recently participated in the Texas Bluebonnet Award Voting for the 2015-2016 Bluebonnet books. The Texas Library Association announces the Bluebonnet Reading list, which consists of twenty books chosen by a panel of Texas Librarians. Students in grades 3rd-6th are challenged to "Read 5, Then Decide". Students that read five of the books from the list are invited to vote for their favorite book. On January 28, 2016, 82 students from Glen Rose Intermediate voted and chose their winner. The favorite among the GRIS students was The Misadventures of Salem Hyde: Spelling Trouble, a graphic novel by Frank Cammuso, with 14 votes. A close second, with 13 votes, was Quinny & Hopper by Adriana Brad Schanen. The Texas Library Association will tally results from across the state and should announce the Bluebonnet Award winner in early February. Students can get a jumpstart on next year's list. Many titles are already in library available for check-out or will be at the book fair in February. http://txla.org/TBA
