Barbara Bush and J.J. Watt are at it again — joining forces for literacy. This time, the action takes place in the Tanglewood area home that she shares with former President George H.W. Bush.

You might recall the duo's previous adventure for literacy with a Christmas read-in at the Hobby Center. And who can forget the former First Lady's hilarious literacy foray on the basketball court with Dwight Howard.

The J.J. Watt PSA, filmed on Tuesday, focuses on the literacy cause by "calling upon parents to be a game-changer for Houston and read with their children every day for at least 15 minutes."

When the defensive end arrived at the Bush home and saw Barbara Bush wearing an apron he commented admiringly on it. She quipped back, "I had to have them explain to me what it was."

The PSA includes a moment with Neil Bush, who co-chairs the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation, working a puzzle with his mom. The puzzle thing is a Bush family tradition.

Former President George H.W. Bush joined the party, but not the filming, as he welcomed the NFL star's parents, Connie and John Watt, to the house.
