Every Tuesday and Friday morning, kids and kids at heart can tune in to Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s official Facebook page to watch notable Texans read children’s stories. The videos are part of Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott’s Stars of Texas Storytime series.
As a proud Texan, it was only a matter of time before George Strait contributed to the series. On Tuesday (May 5), folks finally got the chance to hear “The King of Country” read a children’s book when his storytime video debuted.
The book Strait read was Never Ask a Dinosaur to Dinner, which was authored by Gareth Edwards and published in 2014.
Other children’s books written by Edwards include The Big Animal Mix-Up, The Big Jungle Mix-Up, The Disgusting Sandwich, The Littlest Bird, and Fabulous Pie.
Never Ask a Dinosaur to Dinner was illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees. He has written and illustrated numerous children’s books, with his most notable work being Giraffes Can’t Dance.
Strait made sure to showcase Parker-Rees’ charming illustrations when he read Never Ask a Dinosaur to Dinner for the Stars of Texas Storytime series. Every time he finished a page, he turned the book toward the camera so the viewers could see the colorful pictures.
Wearing his signature cowboy hat and sporting a huge smile, Strait read through the entirety of Never Ask a Dinosaur to Dinner. Even adults remarked in the comments how entertaining it was to hear him read.
Who knew that Strait was such an engaging storyteller?
After he finished reading, Strait cracked a little joke with his audience, saying how they should never invite a dinosaur to join them for dinner. “I know I’m not going to,” he said. “Hope you don’t either.”
Tune in below to watch Strait read Never Ask a Dinosaur to Dinner. Listening to him will help you forget all of your worries for a few minutes!
