Bus Mural Sketches!
by Matthew
March 21, 2022

Spring is almost here and so it is time to dive back into bus conversion and beautification.

As such, Robbi has been sketching the mural, as shown. We are deep in conversations about paint and methodology. Apparently, there is muraling software one can use to make the painting simpler (stay tuned). But for today, have a first peek at how our rolling billboard for books and reading and adventure might look not so long from now.

I can’t wait to see this sucker in its technicolor glory.

The Busload of Books Tour is a year-long project to promote literacy and raise awareness of the challenges facing our nation’s public schools.

Author/illustrator duo Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr (that’s us) and our four kids will spend the 2022-2023 school year traveling the country in a school bus/tiny home, visiting Title I schools in all 50 states (plus DC), and giving away 25,000 hardcover books to students and teachers from underserved communities.

As we travel, we will be blogging, vlogging and posting frequently to social media. All of our content will be appropriate for bringing families and students along on our ultimate road trip.
