CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — "Hi, I'm George Strait, and today I'm going to read you a book," the county music legend said as he was the special guest for Tuesday's Stars of Texas Storytime.

At 10 a.m. Tuesday, Strait read Gareth Edwards’ “Never Ask a Dinosaur to Dinner.”

The video was live via Governor Greg Abbott’s page.

In early April, the First Lady announced Stars of Texas Storytime, a virtual story time program for children and families during the COVID-19 response.

Special guests have included Kendra Scott, Charlotte Jones Anderson, Colt McCoy, as well as Audrey Abbott and the First Lady.
