AUTHOR VISIT HIGHLIGHTS FOR YOUR SCHOLARS INCLUDE:

  • Because each event experience can be tailored to your school or event’s liking, it is important that I first meet with you to have a phone call discussion.  I have a lot to provide and like to know what you are focusing on?  Writing projects, literacy month, beyond the book writing contest, the importance of reading, journey of a story, journey of an author, imaginative play, singing, art, technology 3D printing capabilities (see 3D video), play, etc.)
  • My presentation includes a story time reading of one of my books, (based on grade level) a sing-a-long song that accompanies Unicorn Jazz, the importance of reading discussion, encouraging library skills, and a book signing afterwards.  Optional writing exercises or imaginative ideas.

Book Children's Author, Lisa Caprelli Today!

Engaging with your students and classrooms is one of the best parts of being an author. The children have so many take aways and are inspired to do more than they have imagined using their creativity, writing, language arts, music ability, social emotional learning, emotional intelligence and more!

Sometimes it takes just one person to show them they EACH have talent. I remind them that they have amazing people all around them to BELIEVE in them.
I encourage reading, writing, the power of their libraries, teachers and educators!
Through examples and stories and the use of STORY CHARACTERS, the experiences are educational, informative and most of all FUN!
