2017-2018 Tejas Star Reading List

The Tejas Star Reading List Task Force annually selects a recommended reading list of bilingual English/Spanish books or books written in Spanish from books published in the three years prior to the list being published. The list is prepared for use by children ages 5-12.

The Tejas Star Reading List (TSRL) provides a recommended reading list developed by TLA member librarians from the Texas Association of School Librarians (TASL), the Children’s Round Table, Public Library Division (PLD), and the Latino Caucus. The purpose of the list is to encourage children ages 5-12 to explore multicultural books and to discover the cognitive and economic benefits of bilingualism and multilingualism.

The program began as the Tejas Star Book Award, created by the Region One ESC Library Advisory Committee. TLA’s Tejas Star Reading List Task Force assumed responsibility for the list in 2012.
