IN-PERSON AND SKYPE VISITS FOR ALL AGES
My presentations are fun, content-rich, interactive—everyone gets to ask lots of questions—and highly engaging for both children and adults. I bring 3D-printed, life-size replicas of Beauty's prosthetic beak that everyone gets to touch and examine. I tailor every presentation to your school, grade/s or organization. My honorarium is based on audience size, presentation length and mode of presentation. Book purchases and discounts can be arranged. E-mail me via the contact form and let me know what kind of program you would like!
My books cover many topics, nonfiction and fiction. I can speak about:
—BEAUTY AND THE BEAK, about the bald eagle who received a 3D-printed prosthetic beak, and my other animal books like JIMMY THE JOEY about a baby koala's rescue, and OCEAN BABIES
—STEM, 3D printing, and the connection between science, technology, engineering and literacy (including NGSS)
—Environmental conservation/bald eagles/koalas/ocean science/wildlife rescue/animal adaptations
—From brainstorm to book: ideas/research/strong words/rhyme and rhythm/collaboration/the work of a writer/perspective
—My funny school stories like THE FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN and THE SPELLING BEE BEFORE RECESS
—CHARLOTTE'S WEB and the power of words
I have presented at conferences of the National Science Teachers Association, Association for Library Service to Children, New England Library Association, California School Library Association, California Reading Association and more.
