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 Council of the International Reading Association selects the book lists. In April, New Mexico youth who have read at least three books from one of these lists vote on their favorite.
There are four reading lists:
- Roadrunner Reading List for grades Kâ€“3
- Coyote Reading List for grades 3â€“5
- Lizard Reading List for grades 6â€“8
- Black Bear Reading List for grades 9â€“12
