My author visits begin with Power Point presentations of my children’s picture books, Me, the Tree, Just Be You and I Cannot Sleep, set to music (great for large groups), followed with demonstrations of how I created the illustrations for my books in Photoshop.
An added delight for the kids is that Honey, my Cocker Spaniel and the star of Just Be You and I Cannot Sleep, accompanies me to school and library visits. Honey models her duck robe worn in Just Be You and steals the show every time!
Talks are modified accordingly for K-6th grades.
Presentations take about 45-50 minutes for 3-6 grades and 20-25 minutes for K-2 grades. This includes Q & A and time to pet Honey.
These author visits are available with no impact to the school’s budget.
If your school is interested in a visit from Ann and Honey, please contact Ann for more information.
