Vote for Mr. Schu's Road Trip Buddy



A dear friend and I started the best tradition: SUMMER ROAD TRIPS! Our students vote for a character they think deserves a vacation. Previous winners include Knuffle Bunny, Pigeon, and Scaredy Squirrel. The winning character gets the chance to leave the pages of their books and go on the trip of a lifetime. They find themselves photographed at tourist destinations across the country.

Knuffle Bunny dropped by the laundromat where his troubles began.

Pigeon did not get to drive the bus but drove a racecar at Disneyland.

And last year Scaredy got over many of his fears.

Please take a look at this year's candidates and then vote for the one you would like to see out on the open road. Voting ends on April 29, 2011.

  12. Wilbur! Though, where will you put all his clothes? You know he's got to have an outfit for every occasion.

  15. My vote is for Pete the Cat! He was, by far, the newest star in my library this year with PreK. They begged for Pete's story every week! Can you imagine all the fantastically colorful things he could step in this summer?
