Grades 6-8 Land of Enchantment Book Award Nominees 2020-2021

The Land of Enchantment Book Award is designed to encourage the youth of New Mexico to read outstanding books of literary quality. A committee sponsored by the New Mexico Library Association and the New Mexico Literacy Association selects four lists of books– Roadrunners (Grades K-3), Coyotes ( Grades 3-5), Lizards (Grades 6-8) and Black Bears (Grades 9-12). 

In April, New Mexico youth who have read at least three books from one of these lists vote on their favorite.
