Texas 2x2 Reading Contest

Each year, a committee at the Texas Library Association reads over 700 books to find 20 picture books that will excite young readers by being visually appealing while also being appropriate in content.  These 20 books make up The Texas 2x2 list, which includes books with diverse outlooks, stories, genres, formats, genders, geographic environments, ages, and ethnicities.  Students can read the books independently, with someone else, or have the books read aloud to them. After a student finishes reading or listening to a 2x2 book, he or she can color in the corresponding space on the reading log.  All PreK3 - 2nd grade students who wish to participate in the Texas 2x2 Reading Contest need to read all 20 books and color the corresponding boot.
