Here’s the Daily Minute for April 29, 2022

Today we spent the day at Garnet Elementary School, where Robbi spent her elementary years, Alden and Kato are recent graduates, and Augie is currently a fourth grader,

We had breakfast with the pre-K kids, talked about observation, storytelling, and Everywhere, Wonder with the kindergarten and first graders, and talked about metaphor, creative process, and The Cookie Chronicles with the 2nd-5th grade kids.

We had lunch with a small group of budding writers and artists, and after we’d talked shop for a while, they decided to teach me how to do cheerleader high kicks.

Check out the video for all the evidence you need that I chose the correct career path.

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.
