The Geisel Challenge: Week 9

Dear Mr. Sharp,

I decided not to film a Geisel video this week. Instead, I am encouraging everyone to read the archive from Wednesday's Sharp-Schu Book Club meeting. I had a blast discussing the books with you and everyone who showed up for the meeting. 

I'm looking forward to announcing our next challenge. I better start reading for it. :) 

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Your friend,

Greg, thanks for creating awesome book trailers.

  1. John, thank you for archiving the chats :) I was able to go back and click on all the links you guys posted! Great stuff, just like these videos :) And it's been nice finding out what a really nice guy Greg Pizzoli is. He was in #kidlitart AND #sharpschu and was very generous and kind both times. SO much fun!!!
