In Which Many Hands Make Light Work
by Matthew
May 16, 2022

Last week, the kids made a great start on the mural coloring.

Yesterday, we recruited a spirited corps of semi-professional painters to continue the work.

We divided and conquered, expanding the sky, filling the fields, and mixing a new shade of green to round out the palette.

Not sure where this mural would be without the many hearts and hands that have stepped up to help out.

Glad we don’t have to find out.

Recently:

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.

Good night from Lake Compounce Campground, where the heat is lifted, the moon is up, and the dogs are wanting for us to come to bed, already.

We had a wonderful day with the students and teachers of Highland Elementary. Usually school visits are single-day affairs, but we get to go back to Highland tomorrow for another day of fun.

Sweet dreams, friends.
