It’s a picture book party! Includes a storytime reading and a look at how picture books are made, with behind-the-scenes examples from Ella and Penguin. Presentation includes audience participation, and some movement to keep young minds engaged.
Crafts and activities like the Penguin Mask or Story Starter pair well with this format.
SCHOOL VISIT, FULL DAY
Up to four presentations, 40-60 min each, $600
Includes a dynamic presentation about how picture books are made, including a behind-the-scenes look at early drafts and sketches. We’ll discuss how art and text work together in a finished book, and draft a story together! For older elementary students, I’ll also discuss creative writing and revision (oh, revision!) and the value of resiliency when editing—and doing anything else.
Presentations are tailored for grade level.
