School Visits

Penguin and Tiny Shrimp want to visit your school or library!

I am booking for the 2018-19 school year now. I have two fun presentations incorporating my book, Penguin and Tiny Shrimp Don’t Do Bedtime! (Balzer+Bray/Harper Collins), illustrated by Charles Santoso. Here are some options for potential visits: 

1.  Readers Theater School Presentation

  • Interactive read aloud “play” of the book for student participation
  • I use a script! And assign parts! The whole student body participates as the chorus!
  • We become Verb Detectives, learn how funny stories work and introduce kids to the arc of a story
  • 45-50 minutes long
  • All my presentations come with an educational guide that you can use and re-use in the classroom

2.  Reading, Writing and Humor!

(uses Common Core and state requirements)

  • Action! Become a Verb Detective
  • Learn how funny stories work and some super sneaky Cate Berry tips to help you write your own funny story
  • Find the “rainbow” or story arc of the story

3. Tell Me Your Dream Presentation!

  • I love making something special for your school or classroom based on what you are studying.
  • Let’s brainstorm!
