The Texas Star Reading List is a reading incentive program for middle school students in Birdville ISD. The list is selected by BISD middle school librarians from the Lone Star reading list for students in grades 6-8, and recently published award-winning and highly reviewed titles. We encourage self-selection, allowing students to choose books on the list which align with their tastes and interests.

Texas Star Celebration!
Guest Author for 2017
Students who read and review 12 or more titles from the selected list are eligible to  attend the BISD Texas Star Reading Celebration in May.
Students will hear a presentation from a guest author who wrote one of the Texas Star books, receive a book autographed by the author, and enjoy a delicious catered luncheon.  They will receive a certificate and medal to commemorate their accomplishment and the event.
Students who read and review 20 or more Texas Star books will get to meet the author in person and will receive a hardcover book personalized by the author!
