Tejas Star Book List

The Tejas Star Book List is now one of the  Texas Library Association’s reading lists. Here is the announcement:

A new star has taken its place among the TLA reading lists: the Tejas Star. The voluntary reading program is for ages 5-12 and focuses on bilingual (English/Spanish) and Spanish language titles. TLA's Tejas Star Reading List Task Force has recently assumed sponsorship of the list, which originated as the Tejas Star Book Award under the auspices of the Region I ESC.

The titles are listed at http://www.txla.org/tejas-star .

Chair of the Tejas Star Committee is  María Elena Ovalle.

Update 5/30/2013: We will be ordering one copy of each title on this list for all elementary libraries.


  1. Thank you for posting this. I had been checking the last few weeks and just gave up until next year. Good thing I didn't finish my book order yet.

    Thanks for watching out for us!

  2. I've ordered one set but we are adding two more bilingual units so extra copies will be great!
