Option 1. $1,000 for the Ultimate Author Experience
You get 1-2 Group Inspiration Presentations (50-60 minutes each)
After the presentations the kids are now fired up and familiar with the author. Kevin then spends the rest of the day visiting classrooms and working with the kids on personal narrative stories that they would have completed before the visit. Each willing student will read their story and as a group we will discuss how we could be more descriptive. This is a magical learning experience that leverages the excitement of having an established author working with the students on their own work.
Option 2. $500 for The Group Inspiration Presentation
You get up to 3 inspirational presentations at your school. (50-60 minutes each) No group to large.
Option 3. $300 for the School Sharing Program (3 schools in your area, each pays only $300)
You get one Group Inspiration Presentation at your school and team up with two other schools within thirty minutes of each other. The author will visit all three schools in one day. This is perfect for a school that is on a tight budget and a fun way to get a whole community fired up for an author visit. No group to large.

Bringing a Book to Life (Most Popular Option)
Kevin Lovegreen takes students on an educational and entertaining journey into the world of writing and illustrating children’s books-from early “sloppy copies” through hard work-intense revisions, and finally to a finished book. Emphasis is placed on the team of uniquely skilled individuals that work together to create a book. (Author, Editor, Illustrator, Designer)
The next part is having fun explaining where the story ideas come from. Each book is based on true encounters and the kids love to hear the author describe some of the adventures.
The grand finale is the “World Famous” Animal call challenge. Kevin performs different animal calls hunters use and have the kids guess which animal makes the sound; if it’s a male or female and why a hunter would use the call. Then they get to watch video of the real animals making the sounds. The kids and staff love this.
Have a long lasting impact, add new dimension to the books on the library shelves, and fire students up about reading, writing and the outdoors.
