Dear Educators: I love books! I love reading them, I love writing them, but more than anything I love sharing and talking about them with children! I am currently booking school visits for the 2020-2021 school calendar year.

Presentation details:

  • Pre-K - Read aloud and Q&A - 30 minutes.
  • K-6 - 45 minutes (see presentation topics below)
  • School must provide hosting platform for virtual visits (test call available upon request)
  • Recording is prohibited.
  • Book sales not required. Personalized books can be ordered from Children's Book World in Los Angeles (after March 1, 2021).
  • Presentation topics include:

    • Where do ideas come from? I will share the inspiration for my books and provide students with tools for generating their own ideas.
    • Introduction to writing your own how-to story - I will provide examples of how-to picture books and guide students through outlining their own stories.
    • Story structure - I will walk students through identifying the essential story elements and provide examples.
    • From idea to publication - an overview (and inside look) of how an idea becomes a picture book you can hold.
    • The revision process - writing is re-writing! I will share my own revision tools and help students apply them to their own writing.
    • Personalized programs for your school may be requested.
