Tejas Star Book Awards - Youngsters, Bilingual


Region 1 of the Education Service Centers has done it again?

Tejas Star Book Award

Top award to the 2007 Tejas Star Book Award Winner:

Juan and the Chupacabras/Juan y el Chupacabras by Xavier Garza

"The Tejas Star Book Award was created by the Region One ESC Library Advisory Committee to promote reading in general and for readers to discover the cognitive and economic benefits of bilingualism and multilingualism. All the children of Texas have the opportunity to select their favorite book from the Tejas Star list during the 2008-2009 school year. "

See the fuller list at the link.

The titles do not superficially suggest a particular Texas connection, but its likely that some are.
