John Schumacher (aka Mr. Schu) is a blogger, a part-time lecturer at Rutgers University, and the Ambassador of School Libraries for Scholastic Book Fairs©.
You could say every day is a giant book party for this teacher-librarian! In fact, Library Journal named him "The Xtreme Librarian" for the high level of exertion – along with some gears and stunts – he uses to get kids reading, and Instructor Magazine named him a Cool Teacher for redefining what it means to be a teacher-librarian.
John served on the 2014 Newbery committee, which named the title Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures "the most distinguished contribution to children's literature." He blogs daily at MrSchuReads.com.
