First, let’s reflect upon the first-annual Redbud Read-Aloud program….
“Excited for the new list to be announced. Ooooh, the cheering in my class as I announced each time a book won.. and when the final winner was announced my 2nd graders came out of their seats, cheering!!!!” Margo C – 2nd Grade Teacher
“The REDBUD READ ALOUDS were all the rage in Pre-K – 2nd grade last year! The students loved listening to the books read by myself or their teacher and casting their votes. Jackson Elementary is ready to participate in the 2019 contest!” Dana P – Teacher Librarian
“Our readers were so excited to visit the library each week during the campaign to see which books won each week. They cast their final votes the same week as their older friends voted for Sequoyah. And they all cheered as they watched the announcement of the final winner on the Facebook Live event. It made their reading and opinions important and validated. Thank you for the Redbud Read Alouds!” Janet B – Librarian
Here is a link to the Redbud Announcement, which was emailed out recently. If you don’t receive our newsletters, PLEASE contact us and we’ll try to help them get to you.
By Labor Day, we will be adding more 2019 Redbud info on this site, including a new Redbud manual, an “Almost Redbud” book list, a recommended bracket, and extension/activity guides to use Redbud books across the curriculum. We can even make a customized bracket for you with your own matchups – on request.

Thank you for participating in the Redbud Read-Aloud Award program – and for all you do for Oklahoma students!
Did you know about the Redbud Facebook discussion group?
It’s a great way to share ideas with your colleagues across the state. If your classroom teachers are participating – invite them to join too!
While one of the main goals of The Redbud Read-Aloud Award program is to help increase excitement and participation in The Oklahoma Sequoyah Book Award program, The Redbud Read-Aloud Award is not associated with The Oklahoma Library Association or the Oklahoma Sequoyah Book Award. Please direct all Redbud questions or concerns to us.
Stop by our booth at OTA/Encyclo-Media to pick up your 2018 Redbud Read-Aloud Poster – shown below.
