Sunshine State Young Readers Award

Sunshine State Young Readers Award

Each year the state of Florida selects fifteen books for K-2nd students and fifteen books for 3rd-5th grade.  It is sponsored by the Florida Department of Education and Florida Association for Media in Education (FAME).  The main purpose is to motivate students to read a variety of books and encourage the love of reading.
