Back to School Giveaway: THIS IS A SCHOOL by John Schu Illustrated by Veronica Miller Jamison

I am thrilled to celebrate a new school year with a special giveaway. I have a signed copy of THIS IS A SCHOOL by John Schu (AKA Mr. Schu) and illustrated by Veronica Miller Jamison). The giveaway includes a poster dust jacket and an additional poster perfect for classroom display.

Here are some reviews for this wonderful book that celebrates all the things that make a school a special place.

Schu’s debut picture book salutes the school community and the positive role it plays in kids’ lives. . . Jamison’s watercolor, acrylic, and digital-collage illustrations employ a sunny palette, well suited to the text’s upbeat tone. . . . Schu emphasizes the school as a community, where growth, celebrations, transformations, and work all occur, providing a reassuring introduction to this near-universal experience.
—Booklist (starred review)

Librarian and book advocate Schu invites readers into a school community in which all voices are heard, each person learns, and everyone—and everything, including the plants in the school garden—grows. . . . This introduction to school communities shows children what happens inside a classroom via a vision of school at its best—one that leaves readers with a sense of belonging and inclusion.
—Publishers Weekly

To be in the running for a copy, leave a comment telling readers what you love about your school. I will draw one entry at random and announce the winner in September.

  1. I just borrowed this book from the library! Perfect for this time of year. In one of the schools my grands go to (there are 4…), I love the small size because everyone knows everyone and there is plenty of caring and helping each other going on. 🙂

  2. I am a teacher at a small but diverse school. What I love about our school is that it is truly a family. Teachers and parents work together to give the best education to the students. As we like to say, though we are tiny, we are mighty.

  3. I love that our staff is collaborative and truly care about one another and the kids. We have a warm, caring, environment.
