How long will you be at our school?
You will have me for the entire day! I am fine visiting class to class, or setting up in an art, music, gym/stage room, or library and letting groups of students come to me! My books content are geared towards PreK-2rd grade, however for 3rd+ grades, I will be able to talk more about being an author and illustrator, take part in activities and answer more in-depth questions about writing!
What do you cover in your visit?
1) I will first introduce myself to the class and explain that I am both the author and illustrator including what that means (5 mins)
2) I will read my book (15 mins)
3a) For the younger kids I will play a game in my book. Each book has a search and find, or activity within the book we do together. (15 mins)
3b) For the older kids, I can either:
1) Teach them how to draw one of the characters (15 mins) OR
2) Create a short story with one of the characters (15 mins) OR
3) Or both if in an assembly where time allows
4) I will go over any questions including how I create my illustrations, what subjects are important for authors and illustrators (hint, they all are!), how they can create their own stories, how I get my ideas, etc.
5) Give the students or teachers (based on your preference) signed copies of the book(s)
How much does a school visit cost?
It is FREE if your school orders 30 books or more.
Every student will get to bring home a coloring page.
Prior to my visit, I will send a .PDF copy of my order form that will need to be sent home with all students who will be at my presentation 1 month prior to my visit. Forms and payments are due 3 weeks before my visit so I have time to personalize and sign every book, have them organized by teacher and class so they are ready for the day of.
Paperback books will be available at a discounted price of $10 per book, and any orders count from students, staff, parents, and more.
If 0-9 books are ordered the cost for the visit is $100
If 10-19 book are ordered the cost for the visit is $75
If 20-29 books are ordered the cost is for the visit is $50
