  1. Wonder by R. J. Palacio. Yep, less than a second, but Ivan is a close second. The Fault in our Stars is up there, too. This Is Not My Hat because my students love Jon Klassen & he makes us laugh. I could go on & on, so many books! Happy Thanksgiving, John, I am thankful for you!

  2. So lovely to connect with you, Mr. Schu! Your post on Tara's PiBoIdMo was awesome...I LOVED your video clip.
    My love affair with picture books began over 60 years ago...I'm thrilled to have discovered you and your blog...and will be following to enjoy your book news and travels. :)
