School Visits

Bring Us to Your School

We would love to bring nature programs to your school. Statistics show that the average school-aged child spends almost 8 hours a day indoors in front of media! It’s time to reverse this, so there’s never been a better time to encourage some of the simple and oh-so-important things in life like reading and going outside.

Stacy and her team have developed a program help kids understand the natural world around them, both through reading and exploring their own backyard.

THE PROGRAM

The #1 goal for our program is to get kids to gain a great appreciation for the natural world around them. Most kids don’t realize there’s a whole world out there of birds, butterflies, raccoons, frogs and more. And it’s probably a lot closer than they might think! We want them to explore this world both through great books and getting outside on their own. We offer both half day and full day programs. We also offer a virtual experience for individual classrooms.

THE PRICE 

The half day program starts at $500 and the full day starts at $1,000. We also offer a virtual experience for an individual classroom, starting at $100. All of our programs will be customized—we can include an author signing, lunch with the students, some individual classroom visits, a writing contest, etc. (If you’re outside of Southeastern Wisconsin, there might be additional fees for travel. Contact us for more info.)

THE PROCESS

So you’d like to have us come to your school, but you don’t know how? Start with your principal, school PTA or librarian to see if they can get the funds to spend on an author visit. You could also have a fund-raiser (see information below about selling our book). Another option is to get a local business or bookstore to sponsor our visit. Many groups and organizations believe in promoting reading and outdoor activity with today’s youth, so it might be easier than you think!

We’re sure you have additional questions, and we’re sure we can answer them! Now that we’ve given you an overview, we’d love to talk to you about a visit to your school. Please contact us for more information.
