 2016-2017 Tejas Star Reading List


The Tejas Star Reading List Committee of the Texas Library Association presents the 2016-2017 Tejas Star Reading List (TSRL). This annual list provides a recommended reading 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 Tejas Star Reading List is intended for recreational reading, not to support a specific curriculum.

TSRL site for lists from previous years and other Lariat materials.
