Facebook “likes” garner free books

Justin Uting, a third grade teacher at Behlau ES, recently traveled to San Marcos to meet Jan Brett, one of his favorite authors and illustrators who was touring the U.S. promoting her new book Mossy. The author was holding a competition to see who could get the most “likes” for any picture of her tour bus posted on her Facebook page. With the help of many NISD teachers and friends, Uting’s photograph received more than 300 “likes,” placing him in first. His classroom will receive 10 books from Brett.
