School Visits and Conferences

I visit schools nationwide, speaking to about 15,000 students each year. Each talk is geared to the students’ grade level. I have versions for every grade level and I vary it every year with new video and anecdotes from my current books and adventures. Talks can be presented to pre-K through 8th grade.

What educators are saying…

“Thank you again for such a wonderful visit to Monroe Elementary. I’ve been having authors and illustrators in for a long time, and your visit really stands out. The teachers are still talking about how great your presentation was. You made me look really good, since I booked you!”
