Recommended Reading

We have three different recommended reading lists which include Southern Star, Texas Bluebonnet, and the Texas 2x2 books.  The Southern Star book list is a selection of books for pleasure reading that was curated by the librarians across the district.  The Texas Library Association carefully selects titles for the Bluebonnet list as well as the Texas 2x2 list.

Texas Bluebonnet Reading List!

Each year, 20 books are chosen for the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List. Schools and libraries around the state participate in the program, encouraging students to read a minimum of five books from the list. The author of the book receiving the most votes wins the Texas Bluebonnet Award (TBA) which is presented at the Texas Bluebonnet Award Luncheon held during the TLA Annual Conference in the spring.
