I would love to visit your school or preschool. It is a thrill for me to see the children engaged in discussions about my books.
I make every effort to get the children involved in my stories. I love to share my stories and to talk about my work as a writer. I always strive to engage students in my presentations and get them excited about reading and the writing process.
I present to age four through eight years old. I prefer to share my stories with intimate groups such as 1-2 classrooms. However, I will tailor my visit to meet your needs.
Materials Needed by the School
1. Speaker with lapel microphone (if venue is large)
- Provide a mailing package before my visit with suggestions to prepare the children.
- Include a flyer with information about ordering my books that can be sent home with the children.
- Be happy to sign and dedicate my book for any purchased copies. (This helps me to know how many books to bring with me).
Fees and information:
$1000/ flat fee. This does not include travel expenses. I will come for half days if the school is an easy drive.
Ages and types of presentations:
Preschool/Kindergarten: I make every effort to design my presentations to meet the needs of this population. I try to have an energetic presentation and I encourage their involvement.
1st/2nd Grades: In addition to the stories, I add some information about the writing and publishing process. As I go through the story, I am hoping that they can experience themselves as writers.
