Sherri's recent tour for her latest book Tiny and the Big Dig!


School Visits and Presentations

This is the best part of my job! I make my school visits what I would have enjoyed as a young child: fun, fast- paced and visual! Using an audio/visual presentation with lots of opportunity for interaction, we learn how an idea becomes a book. But, more importantly, we learn about the MAGIC power of books, how important reading is and how life-changing books are. (I promise, I convey the message in a super-fun, kid-friendly way!) I aim to leave kids feeling energized and excited about reading!

 Thanks for having me, too, Aiden!

Grades K-4: The length of my presentations varies from 45 minutes to an hour, depending on your schedule needs, the time allotted for interaction and Q&A, and on the attention span (i.e. age) and size of the group.

Grades 5-8:  I have a specific a/v presentation geared to this audience.

Preschools: I modify my presentations for preschools, and typically don’t utilize the a/v presentation. I do a short introduction, talk a little about how I became an author, do a reading with a little help from my audience and try a little Q&A. These are short, lively presentations, and I’ve done as many as 11 in a day (!), working my way through the classrooms. I really enjoy this age group, their unpredictable questions and comments and our occasional need to work out our wiggles!

Adult Audiences:  I often present to groups of teachers, librarians and literary enthusiasts.

Some things to Consider and some Requests:

To economize, I'm happy to be "shared" with a nearby school, whereby you can split the cost of my day rate and, if applicable, travel expenses.

I don't require a pre-sale of my book, but I'd be thrilled if you offer one!

It's nice if students are familiar with my book prior to my arrival. I think it makes it more fun for them.

 When the artwork they did to welcome you totally melts your heart...THANK YOU Prairie School in Orland Park, IL for a wonderful day!

Skype Appearances:  If you are unable to have a school visit with me, you can arrange for a Skype visit with me. I usually do the sessions in the morning and I can do a maximum of 4 sessions a day (45 minutes maximum in length.) I do require a technical check, the day before to make sure everything is working properly.

Please contact my booking agent Janit Ramos at janit@sherririnker.com for availability and pricing.
