    Louisiana Young Readers Choice Award

    Every year students can participate in the Louisiana Young Readers Choice program. Students who read at least three books from the 3-5 grade list are eligible to vote for their favorite book. The author whose book receives the most student votes will receive the Louisiana Young Readers Choice Award (LYRCA) next fall at the Louisiana Book Festival in Baton Rouge.

    LYRCA book lists are available on the library website, under my booklist, and on bookmarks in the LWE Library. For more information about this program, visit the Louisiana State Library Center for the Book website via the link above.

    The 2020 winner was Imagine That!: How Dr. Seuss Wrote the Cat in the Hat  by Judy Sierra, illustrated by Kevin Hawkes
