  1. Mr. Schu,

    Great blog. I found your blog through a search I was doing about the “Show Your Shiny Side!” TV-Turnoff Week contest. Your posting about the contest was on November 22. We (Bubblegum Books) are partners with the Center for Screen-Time Awareness in the contest. Thanks for your help in promoting the contest. We had a similar contest last year with another one of our books and the response was great.

    Thought your readers might be interested to know they can purchase discounted copies of the book through the Center. Here’s a link to the discounted order form.


    If you can let other teachers at your school and in your area know about the contest, we’d really appreciate it. I can email you a copy of the entry form if you’d like.

    There’s also more information about the contest on our website at:

  2. Hi Mr. Schu!

    Thank you for posting the Harper Library Video Tour to your blog. The staff here at Harper is really excited that people other than our faculty have viewed it. We’ve all become (and not because of the video post) big fans of your site. Keep up the Great Work!!!

  3. I want to bring a new public artpiece about literature to your attention. I designed and built it along with several friends. We just installed it at the Wheeler Taft Abbett Sr. Branch Library in Marana, AZ. The sculpture includes hundreds of phrases from a wide range of literature, as well as oral histories of the settlement of the Marana area. The words are roughly 74% English, 24% Spanish, and 2% O’odham. See pictures at the following link:

  5. John and Donna,

    Looking forward to your upcoming trip. Check this site daily…..

    I still think you should write a book about your travel adventures. Olivia will love it when she gets older πŸ™‚

    Safe Travels!
