World Class Presentations
Recommended for Grades K-6
Option 1. The Ultimate Author Experience
You get 1-2 Reading Frenzy Assemblies (50-60 minutes each)
You get the Author for up to 6 hours for the day.
Plus, one full set of the Author’s books ($360 Value)
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 they will explore how to add more color to the stories. "Painting picture with Words" is the goal. 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. The Reading Frenzy Assembly
You get up to 3 Reading Frenzy Assemblies at your school. (50-60 minutes each) No group to large. The topic, goals and benefits are described below.
Option 3. The Shared Reading Frenzy Assembly
You get one Reading Frenzy Assembly at your school and team up with two other schools in your area. 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 too large.

Bringing a Book to Life
The Author takes students on an educational and entertaining journey into the world of writing and illustrating children’s books. Emphasis is placed on picking stories that we each like to write about and how important editing is. Kevin highlights 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. He leaves each story at a cliffhanger and that helps create the Reading Frenzy!
The grand finale is the “World Famous” Animal call challenge. Kevin performs different animal calls hunters’ use and has 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 videos of the real animals making the sounds. The kids and staff love this.
