Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) Books
The Sunshine State Young Readers' Award program presents a group of 15 books chosen each year by a committee of Florida librarians. They are chosen for their quality and appeal, and represent some of the best in children's literature today.
Students in grades 3 through 8 are encouraged to read at least 3 of the books, so they can vote for their favorite. Every year, the author of the book with the most statewide votes is presented with the Sunshine State Young Readers' Award.
Students can Book Taco quizzes on the Sunshine State books to earn brag tags.
Middle school students may take the quizzes on at least 13 books to qualify for the Middle School SSYRA Book Bowl.
