What you need to do to schedule and prepare for me to visit your school
Scheduling me to visit your school
To schedule me to visit your school, simply contact me by e-mail at [ken at kenbakerbooks dot com], letting me know the desired visit date, time, presentation topics, school location, contact information, and any other applicable information.
Preparing for my school visit
Get the students excited
To help the students get the most out of my school visit, introduce students to my recent books during class time a few days or weeks before the visit. Also, ensure that you have plenty of copies of OLD MACDONALD HAD A DRAGON and COW CAN’T SLEEP in your school library.
Please have the following available and set up on the day of my visit, prior to my arrival:
- LCD computer projector
- White projection screen
- A small table
- Microphone (Only needed for large assemblies)
School visit fees
- $375-$950 (Actual cost depends on number of presentations and travel time)
- $950 plus transportation, room, and meal expenses
If you would like me to do a book
signing, be sure to order copies of my books in advance for your
students and teachers that want my books.
You can order both OLD MACDONALD HAD A DRAGON and COW CAN'T SLEEP either from the book wholesaler used by your school (i.e., Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Follett) or from Brilliance (Direct distributor for Marshall Cavendish Children's Books/Amazon Children's Publishing).
Note: To place orders through Brilliance you can call 1-800-648-2312, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.brillianceaudio.com/amazonchildrenspublishing.
BRAVE LITTLE MONSTER is only available from Scholastic Book Club on a periodic basis. You will need to check with Scholastic Book Club for its current availability.
