School & Library Visits / Bookstore Events

I love meeting kids, making them laugh, and getting them revved up to read! Contact me and we’ll create a customized event that’s super fun for kids (and not stressful for you).

Prince and Pirate Party!

Reading & Listening: Experience the story—complete with princely and pirate-y voices

Moving & Grooving: Dance along to the Prince and Pirate theme song and other silly tunes

Playing: Participate in fun, fish-themed games

Making: Craft a crown, fashion a pirate hat, color and fold a fish, design a fishbowl

Speaking: Practice talking like a pirate (Yar!) and a prince (Egad!)

Costumes: Party-goers can be invited to dress like princes, princesses, or pirates  

Book Orders: Optional

For school visits, we talk about title, character, picture clues, author, illustrator and more,

and we make lots of predictions about what will happen next!

Halloween Hustle Dance Party!

Reading & Listening: Read along with the story—say or sing the refrain and predict end rhymes
