Donalyn Kent - Tales
Author Visits - Scheduling Information
I love sharing my story about honey bees with school kids and engaging their interest in these little creatures. Story-time takes about 20 minutes to read in its entirety. I incorporate & interact quite a bit of wildly entertaining honey bee fun-facts with my audience (before, during and at the end). Academically, my presentation includes a little science, health, environment, and believe it or not, math!
Additional handout sheets (beehive maze, cross-word puzzles, and an excerpt from the book "10-ways to help protect honey bees" in which students can take home to share with their families) and honey-straws are all available for teachers to distribute after the presentation. And of course, I wrap up the event with Q&A's (story-related, author or illustration topics, book publishing, etc.).
In order to process pre-ordered books with personalized names, set-up table display, and meet with necessary persons regarding any technical support (laptop/projector & screen) for pdf slideshow, if needed, I will arrive 20 minutes prior to the scheduled event time. It's also nice to allow 10 minutes after presentation to process any last minute orders.
Author Visits are suitable for grades K-8th and structured accordingly. If interested, please send me an email. Students, parents & teachers will certainly enjoy the show and definitely know more about honey bees!
