This Is a School

author: John Schu
illustrator: Veronica Miller Jamison

A school isnít just a building; it is all the people who work and learn together. It is a place for discovery and asking questions. A place for sharing, for helping, and for community. It is a place of hope and healing, even when that community canít be together in the same room. John Schu, a librarian and former ambassador of school libraries for Scholastic, crafts a loving letter to schools and the people that make up the communities within in a picture book debut beautifully illustrated by Veronica Miller Jamison.

A moving celebration of school and all it may signify: work and play, creativity and trust, and a supportive community that extends beyond walls
