I MET AN AUTHOR TODAY! (Preschool--Kindergarten)

Half-hour program that includes songs, hand-plays, reading of two or more books with coordinating activities.


A VISIT WITH THE AUTHOR (Grades 1-2)

This forty-five minutes program introduces kids to several aspects of the writing life.  They will learn what three things every story in the world needs. They will experience what a writer keeps in her invisible toolbox. And they will find out, through Lisa’s puppet friend Ol’ Bear, why she likes being an author. Program includes the reading of at least two books.


MAMMOTHS AND DINOS AND RESEARCH, OH MY! (Grades 2 and up)

In this one hour presentation, Lisa shares her passion for woolly mammoths and the research involved in writing her non-fiction title, Mammoths On The Move. This two-part program also shows how research can also be necessary when writing fiction, as Lisa shares her popular title, Dino Hockey.


IN THE MOO-D FOR BOOKS! (Grades 3-4)

Lisa loves animals. Especially those who walk, talk, and star in their very own books.  The author shares bits and pieces of funny facts she has picked up while researching the stars of her books. Includes a reading of at least one book and the story behind the story.


FACT OR FICTION: RESEARCH IS YOUR FUZZY FRIEND (Grade 3 to 6)

Using stories from her own experience and poems from her own books, children’s author, Lisa Wheeler, hopes to take the fear out of research. “It’s important for writing not just non-fiction but also fiction. Kids are surprised by that.” Just for fun, students get to play ‘Fact or Fiction’, where they’ll be introduced to strange (but true?) animal stories. This one hour program includes Q & A time at the end.


THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD (Grades 4-6)

Lisa loves being an author and enjoys sharing the ins and outs of how a book gets published, complete with show-and-tell of her books in different stages of completion. She gives kids information on the tools necessary to make a niche in the world of books. Question and answer period to follow.
