JANE WOOD BOOKS | Mystery and Adventure Make Reading Fun for Kids
My standard school presentation lasts 60 minutes. I spend 30 minutes talking about how and why I write my books; how I do the research; and then I focus on the writing process, with special emphasis on editing and re-writing. I also share photographs and anecdotes about the people, places, and animals featured in my books. I take questions for about 15 minutes, and leave 15 minutes at the end to autograph and personalize books for students who want to purchase their own copies.
My school visit is much more meaningful for the students if they have read one of my books before I present. Schools may purchase my books at a discount price when ordered directly from me using the Discount Order Form for Schools. A copy of the school's Tax Exempt Certificate should accompany the order. Often students want to purchase their own copies, as well. These books may be pre-ordered and I will autograph and personalize them for each student. I have a form that can be sent home to parents in advance of my visit.
I have developed numerous teacher resources, including Vocabulary Words, Discussion Questions, Correlations to Standards, Links to websites relevant to each book, as well as some student activities like Word Scrambles and Electronic Scavenger Hunts. All of these can be found on the Resources page.
Half-day: Two one-hour sessions for $350.
All day: Four one-hour sessions for $600.
