 An organization dedicated to promoting early literacy and future school success.

 They are a sponsor of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a program that sends a book each month to the home of each registered child (birth through five years of age) at no cost to the family. Children of different ages receive different titles; the books are carefully selected and are for the children to keep.



The Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award was created to honor excellence in children’s literature. Each year since 1957, Vermont students in grades four through eight have selected their favorite book from a list of 30 nominees. It is recommended that students read at least five of the year’s nominated titles before voting.


Here is a checklist to keep track of the ones that you have read.
