Presentation Description:

I have several presentations I do depending on the age of the children. They include one titled "Everyone and Everything Has a Story" (focusing on how the children can find their own stories to tell), one about revision (where I show the process from idea to publication of one of my books, highlighting the many rounds of revision required), and others. All my presentations include a powerpoint, reading of one or more of my books, audience participation, and songs with crazy hats!
