School Visits

Arrange A Visit!

 

I love visiting elementary schools to share my passion for children's literature and illustration. My presentations are lively, interactive, educational, and fun!

 

In My Presentation I...

 

  • Encourage fun audience interaction and participation.

  • Talk about how I became an illustrator and author.  

  • Explain how a picture book is made from idea to publication.

  • Show step by step how I create an illustration. 

  • Discuss the connection between words and pictures in picture books.

  • Read my book and encourage audience participation.

  • Show kids some creativity exercises to help them come up with their own characters and settings and have the kids draw along with me.

  • Talk about what the children can do to make the world a better place by sharing their gifts with others.

  • All my presentations include an author packet with teaching ideas and fun activities for the kids!
