Indian Paintbrush Book Award Book Lists

Sponsored by the Wyoming Library Association and the Wyoming State Reading Council, the Indian Paintbrush Book Award provides the opportunity for Wyoming youth in grades 4-6 to select a favorite book and honor its author. Its purpose is to help Wyoming students in grades 4-6:
  • Become acquainted with the best contemporary authors
  • Become aware of the qualities that make a good book
  • Set a goal to read at least three good books
  • To honor an author whose books Wyoming students have enjoyed.

For more information contact the Wyoming Indian Paintbrush Book Award Committee.
