Busload of Books!
To whom it may concern,
I’m excited to let you know that Deer Isle Stonington Elem. School is one of just 52 schools nationwide selected for the Busload of Books Tour, a major literacy project by author/illustrator duo Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr. Robbi and Matthew and their four kids are spending the 2022-2023 school year living in a school bus/tiny home, visiting Title I schools in all 50 states (plus DC), doing presentations on creativity and collaboration, and giving away 25,000 free hardcover books to students and educators in low-income communities.
Robbi and Matthew will be visiting Deer Isle Stonington Elem. School on Friday, September 16th, 2022. Our school community is so excited for the visit, and we wanted to let you know in case you’re able to help spread the word. Here are some resources to learn more about the Tour:
