Author School Visits

Invite Ken Baker to visit your school

Story Creation Fun: How to Write and Create Stories

When I come to your school I give an interactive presentation that explores the fun and exciting world of books, while teaching students how to write and create their own stories using plot, characters, and setting.  If there's time, I'll also read from a few of my books (Presentation time about 45-50 minutes).

If desired, my author school visit can be tailored to the specific needs and requirements of your school or event. Please contact me for more information.

Kindergarten class visits: Readings and Q&A

Since kindergarten age students sometimes have a hard time sitting through a 45-50 minute presentation, as part of my author school visit I sometimes offer the option of separately visiting with the kindergarten students. During the kindergarten visit I'll read from my books and answer the students and teachers questions. (1-2 visits for about 10-15 minutes each).
