Authors Who Do School Visits
Booking an author is a big decision and I want to make sure that if you book my programs that your students get the
most out the day.  I have created programs that will not only get the kids excited about reading but will also help to
reaffirm your school's writing curriculum. For some of your students it is going to be the first time they get to meet a real
live author and even if it's not, this is a connection that can make a difference in a child's educational development. My
goal is to get them excited, to inspire them and to see that they walk away from the day with a new or renewed
appreciation for reading and writing.  I've visited hundreds of schools and have experienced the energy and excitement
that is created by this type of event. I have had lots of wonderful days doing author visits but the best visits always have  
one thing in common and the common denominator is always preparation.

Get the best author visit you've every had!
What you should do ahead of time
whether you bring in my program or another author's.

•  Create excitement for the day:  This simply comes down to how much preparation the librarian, teachers,
home associations, and principal are willing to put into the visit prior to my arrival.

•  
Tell the students that you have an author coming. It sounds obvious, but every year I walk into a
few schools and find that the students don't know who I am or why I am there. I am always surprised when this
happens. I am not expecting anyone to break out the marching band for me, but you should make the students aware of
the upcoming author appearance starting four or five weeks in advance. Put my books on display in the school library.
Put a display of book covers up in the hallway and use my website as part of your preparation.  On my website you will
find video clips, book readings and audio clips from my music CDs and from my shows.  My publisher even offers
every school discounted preparation book sets that include all 14 of my books so, if you don't have my work in your
school, look for the book set on my website under Daryl's Books.

Other suggestions:

•  Have classes read my books and have the kids write down questions they might want to ask the author.
•  Have a contest and the winners get to have lunch with the author.
•  Have an art class make posters, banners welcoming the author.
•  I love when the kids write reviews of my books or write me letters.
•  Let the local newspapers know you're hosting an author.
and take pictures of the day, lots of pictures.
Video taping the event may be allowed, but ask the author if it is okay.

•  Create a theme at your school for the day. Kids love pirates and I have several pirate books
including my pirate novel for advanced younger readers or ages 10 and up ("Pirates: The Ring of Hope") as well as
several picture books ("Do Pirates Go To School?"), so have a pirate day or choose a different topic, the kids will
enjoy whatever you come up with.

•  
Create a BUZZ and get the kids excited! Kids learn from example and if they see the staff getting excited about
the author visit then the chances are they will too.  And when the kids are excited, any message the author gives them
will be that much more powerful.
________________________________________


There are a few other things you should do for the author in advance of the visit.

•  Directions: Make sure I know how to get to your school!
.
•  Itinerary for the day:  The author and the school should always know what the day is going to entail. What
time will each program start, what grades will attend each program, where will the programs be held, how many
assemblies are contracted for, how long will each one be and does the school have any timing conflicts and that usually
means looking closely at your lunch schedules.  I do both large and small group assemblies but some authors might want
to know how many kids will be in each show. Understand what you have contracted the author to do and don't
schedule more programs than are contracted for.  

•  Grade Range:  I present successfully to students at every age level but that is not the case with most authors.
Some authors will give the same presentation to each grade level and you will find that it will either sail over the heads of
the younger ones or will bore the older audiences.  What your looking for is an author that can connect with the kids at
each level.  So for me it is important to know before hand which grades are attending each assembly so I can make the
proper adjustment to each assembly program.

•  Equipment:  I come with all of my own equipment because there is music involved, so for me a movie screen or
a white wall is all that I require but find out exactly what the author will need in terms of equipment-a slide projector,
screen, chalkboard, extension cord, microphone, etc.  As a singer and speaker I know my throat gets dry so having
bottled water on hand is appreciated . Get everything ready in advance so nobody has to scramble around looking for
things as the kids are filing into the room.

•  Confirmation:   Make sure I have a school phone number, a secondary contact phone number in case of an
emergency, the date of the visit, all equipment needed and the balance of the program fee and it's availability the day of
the performance.


ON THE DAY OF THE VISIT

•        Lunch. I like to do lunch with the kids (pick a group of students, have a contest and the winners get to have
lunch with the author) but whether you choose this option or not, it's nice to give the author lunch and I am not picky the
cafeteria lunch is fine.  Lunch with the students is always fun and a special time for this group of kids so set us up in a
room with some pizza or sandwiches and we'll have a great time. If you prefer the author make his own lunch plans, let
him know in advance and don't leave them in the dark. It should be part of your itinerary.  

•        Multiple Presentations:  If the author will be giving multiple presentations and in my case that is nearly
100% of the time, try to do them at one location. It's very difficult an author to move equipment from room to room
quickly and get it all set back up before the next program.  Please keep it in one location!

•       
 Disciplining Students:  I would love to say that this never has to happen but it does, it's normal and it is
part of doing programs for kids.  It shouldn't be the authors job to discipline disruptive students and it can be lessened
by seating kids appropriately. If a student is disruptive, have someone step in and take care of the situation. Have the
teachers present during the program.  The teachers know their students and know where problems might come from so
have them place those students near them or another teacher.

•        
Final Payment:  No author wants to have to track down their fee or hear "Whoops We Forgot! But
we'll put it in the mail."  Pay the author on or before the day of the visit. Don't make the author have to track somebody
down at the end of the day and ask for a check.

•  Autographs:  I love signing autographs for kids but I have learned over the years that once I start, it can take on
a life of its own and what starts as a simple request will turn into bedlam. Kids will start scrambling for paper and then
every child in the area will be crowded around with notebooks, caps, shirts, shoes and even bared flesh all waiting to be
signed.  Discuss this with the author in advance. I think every kid who wants an autograph should get one, whether they
buy a book or not but this is hard to do in a school with hundreds of students so timing is important. It can be done if
the author signs a few autographs and someone runs a bunch off on a copier. Autographs NEVER work when you have
one group of kids leaving the room while the next transitions in. I know that I usually need time to catch my breath and
get the next program ready to go and most authors will also need this time. Try not to put your author in a position
where he has to disappoint the students by telling them no. Make your teachers aware that it can't be done at this time
and have them do it.

AFTER THE VISIT

•        I love to hear from the students so feel free to have them write me and let me know how they like the day.  If they
are reading my books have them write some reviews and send it to me. This is a great writing project.

A note to all Assembly Coordinators

I do my best to make each and every author visit an experience that everyone will remember, keeping this in mind if the
experience was good please fill out the evaluation form that I send out.  A rule of thumb for any author program, if the
author visit was good, e-mail him or her a short note saying so. It can be used to get future bookings. I hate to say this
but there are not a lot of great author programs on the market but if you get one tell other principals, librarians, and
teachers about it because that is how we get more work.  I work hard in and out of your schools to make each program
worthy of your teacher's and student's time so I deeply appreciate it when I have another school book because they
heard how good it was from you.


TO SELL BOOKS OR NOT TO SELL

I will honestly respect your decision no matter which way you decide to go but if the point of bringing in my program or
any other author is to promote literacy then you will understand that I am always a bit baffled when a school opts out of
books sales which would actually be the act of promoting literacy.  Book sales for most authors are not highly profitable
and doing a book sale in conjunction with a school program comes with a great deal of work by the author. I prepare
an order form just for your school and when the books come in I personalize and tag each book before I come to your
school to make it easy for your coordinator to hand them out. I also don't want book sales taking up any of my time
while I am at your school.  This process on my end can take as long as one hour per 25 to 30 books so I may spend 2
to 4 hours signing and tagging books for your kids.  It assure you it is not a profitable way to spend my time but I do it
anyway because that is part of promoting literacy.   

That said, most schools include book sales with the author visit but be sure to make it clear when you are arranging the
school visit because if you don't want them the author should be aware of this in advance.  Some author's fee structure
may also change based on your decision or they my not want to do the program so be clear.  For me I want you to do
the book sales but the program is my top priority.

There are several reasons that book sales are frowned upon and though I understand them I
honestly don't think that they are reasons not to do them.  The first is that they are considered a hassle but let's examine
what really has to be done and again understand we are doing this to promote literacy.  I e-mail you a copy of the order
form, you copy it and distribute it to the teachers who in turn send it home in back pack mail, you send a reminder note
home the week before they are due back letting parents know that they are due back, you then have the teachers
collect the order forms as they come in and then give them to the coordinator by the return date.  The coordinator can
either send me the forms with checks attached made payable to the publisher or they can write one check for the total
cost of the books from the school or home association and send that check a long with the forms back to me so I can
sign the books.  The book will arrive with me the day of our visit tagged and will take no more than a few minutes to
hand out.

Reason number two is that the Home Association doesn't want to do it because it will get in the way of their
Scholastic Book sale.  The author visit sale can be easily worked around this conflict so it doesn't affect the out come of
either one. I do it each and every year with great success.

Reason number three is that our school is Title One and poor and our parents can't afford to buy books
anyway.  I really don't think that the school should make that decision for the parents, they should be allowed to make it
individually.  I have sold many books to poor families because those parents just like wealthier parents felt that getting
their children to read was worth a few dollars.

The reason every school should do the author book sale!

If you sell just one book from your author visit sale that means you have one child who will be reading and maybe he or
she is one of the kids that you've been trying to motivate to read all year or for years.  
Now what if they want a book, they have the money for it (Rich or Poor) and you tell them no.  What kind of message
are we now sending?  Yes, they could buy it on Amazon or go to a book store but the fact is they won't, they won't
because they want it on this day because this day means something to them.  It's the day they meet the author and he or
she signed a book to them, just for them.  This could be the moment that gets to that struggling student because
inspiration can spark a desire; I know this to be true because I once was that struggling student and I found this type of
inspiration. I discovered at an early age that in one defining moment lives can be changed.

I feel in love with the arts on a class trip to New York City;
as I sat watching my first stage play ( "Grease" ) the path my life would take
had changed by the finial curtain call.  That play got me excited about something
like I had never experienced before and that was my moment.  I was fourteen
at the time and at 50 I get the same feeling I did that day every time I
go on stage and perform for the students. Each time I go into a school
I am hoping that my talents will give students that same kind of moment.

Again, I want you to do the book sale because I believe that it sends the right message to the kids but the programs are
always my top priority but keep your eye on the big picture.

For me, visiting schools has been the most successful and rewarding thing I've done in my life.  With each visit I get to
personally experience your young people on their level; I get to see the excitement in their faces and I get the
opportunity to influence young lives in a positive way.

Writing & reading are about to get a lot more exciting!
"Baseball, Bullies & Angels"
[T]he sentiment is sweet and Van Wagoner’s
illustrations are eye catching, though it’s the little
girl’s expression that shines through on every page.
The verse Cobb has penned is appealing and...[t]he
idea behind the story of the little girl and her doting
father is charming[.] ”      
-- Kirkus Reviews
--Kirkus Reviews calls
"
Bill the Bat Babysits Bella",
"A sweet book celebrating brother-sister bonds."
-- Kirkus Reviews calls
"Bill the Bat Loves Halloween",
"[A] fast- moving, fun rhyming picture book"!
--Kirkus Reviews calls"Daniel Dinosaur",
"A sweet story told in simple rhymes that young
children will likely enjoy. The light, whimsical
drawings maintain a sense of fun."
For advanced young readers or ages 10 to 14
--Kirkus Reviews says that "Pirates: The Ring of
Hope, is [a] spirited swashbuckling tale of mystery
and magic. The characters are rich and beautifully
rendered, and the story is sprinkled with humor... .  
Much of the dialogue is delightfully silly."
"Greta's Magical Mistake"  
"With simple rhymes and a gentle spirit, veteran children's
author Cobb offers an enjoyable story of a witch-in-
training whose good intentions go awry. This pleasant,
engaging story provides valuable messages about
friendship and the importance of good listening. Artist
Pentangelo’s colorful, playfully skewed images underscore
the text’s comical tone and contain numerous small details
that attentive readers will enjoy.  A sweet but never
cloying tale of a student witch, playfully illustrated."    
   
                                                 --

--Kirkus Reviews calls "Henry Hare" A fun
romp with uniquely illustrated characters and a
simple solution to an amusingly silly dilemma.”

-- Mrs Goodnow, 3rd grade teacher

with students and made them feel such a part of your
program.  These were definitely some of the best
programs we have ever had!  It was great having you visit
our school!!!"    

--Janet.Pagoni Teacher, Assembly Coordinator
Dorothy C. Goodwin ES
Storrs, Connecticut


"The assemblies were so much more than I expected, even
the teachers were engaged; it was informative, fun and
entertaining. You are a
great performer and your ability to
use every student at the assembly and not just the few
chosen to work or sing with you was exciting; even the
teachers were singing along.  The Elmwood PTA was very
pleased and the feedback from the teachers and staff has
been excellent.”

-- Amy Palmer, 1st Vice President PTA

"I've been arranging author visits for 25 years and have
met many, many authors, so trust me when I say that you
are way up there -- among my five favorites! Each of
those favorites presented a top-notch show with a super
visual presentation, they're lively, enthusiastic, and they
inspire children to write.  AND, each has a "special" aspect
to their show.  You, my friend, have all of that -- a
fantastic power point, you engaged the children through
song, you are one of the most enthusiastic presenters,
your message of looking for inspiration in their everyday
world was super! -- AND your "special" feature is your
top-notch musical component!

-- Mrs. Linda M. Kolb, Supervisor of Instruction
Silver Bay Elementary School,
Toms River, New Jersey
                           


I loved how you engaged the students and got them to
participate.  It was nice to see you go into the audience to
teach and perform, getting down among them at their
level, even when singing. I have been having author
assemblies for the past 6 years and I have had teachers ask
me how I am going to be able to “top this one” next year!

-- Pat Parker Reading Specialist
Kingsville Elementary School
Kingsville, Maryland
 


It was great~we are so happy! The teachers were
impressed with the way you could communicate
appropriately and effectively with each group in a different
way.  The interactive elements of your program really kept
the students involved.  Thank you for a wonderful visit!

-- Kristin Swanson Librarian
Cumru Elementary School Library
Shillington, Pennsylvania
                          


I thought your program was off the charts, and so did my
staff. Everyone was buzzing about it after school on
Friday and the students are still talking about the assembly
today, even after a weekend.

Students were engaged and very entertained during the
whole presentation.  Your presentation is way beyond the
typical “author visit presentation”.  It’s so much more!”

-- Carol Rice, Librarian
Plainfield Elementary
Nazareth, Pennsylvania
          


"Students need to see that reading, literacy and lyrics can
be fun; you did that in a big way!  It was not the traditional

the stories and the show to life!  Absolutely!  The best
author day I have seen and one of the best assemblies I
have been a part of!"

“I had the honor of viewing your presentations at Solvay
Elementary School the other day and I can’t even express
half of what your visit has meant to so many.  What an
inspiration to the youngsters and even the adult staff. The
flexibility for each grade level was absolutely wonderful.  
The comments from our students and teachers were so
complimentary to you (I wish you could have heard them)
that I am sure you would have found them very
rewarding.  For many of our students outside life is not
always easy; you have helped some of these children to
find a spark of confidence in themselves as well as given
them hope that one day their talents can be put to use.    I
thank you sincerely and with great appreciation.”

-- Verna Jean White, Special Education
Solvay Elementary School,
Solvay, New York


"Wow, amazing assemblies is all I can say!  The writing
workshops were also a big hit. My eldest son came home
talking about the fantastic time he had making the story in
Mrs Casserly's class and Nate has been listening to your
CD non stop. Thank you so much for the wonderful visit
to CVE. The students and teachers had a wonderful time."  

-- Angela Jones Middleton, Assembly Coordinator,    
Cromwell Valley Elementary
Towson, Maryland
        


“Your presentation was both motivating and captivating.  
Teachers sought me out to tell how fantastic it was and to
rave about your workshops.  They were very pleased.   
Elementary aged children are like sponges and you gave
them so much to hold onto!!

-- Dawn Martin Assembly Coordinator

Thank you so much for the assembly.  You did a truly
fabulous job and the teachers have been saying how
phenomenal it was.  Then students were very captivated
and inspired and everyone is very excited to begin our
book writing project.  We really appreciate how well you
tied our project into the assembly and it created such an
exciting buzz about book writing from teachers, students
and parents!  Thank you again for a wonderful assembly.

"I have seen many educational shows come into this
school and I just had to tell you that I thought yours was
simply outstanding."

--Loretta Ziegler, Librarian
Lester D. Wilson School
Alexandria, New Jersey


"Thank YOU for coming to WBS!!!  The day was a huge
success and your understanding of the concept of
"conflict" and how to add details to their writing to make it
come alive. It was wonderful to see how you catered each
presentation to the grades who participated.  I loved the
interactive nature of it, I loved the fact that you sang to
and with the children and I loved the way you incorporated
several different modes of entertainment (story elements,
writing, music). They were so engaged and truly excited!  
That kept the children hooked throughout!  As an adult, I
was truly motivated, so I'm sure they were too!"

--Elisabeth Babich,Communication Arts Resource
Specialist, West Broad Street Elementary School
Souderton, Pennsylvania

"Your program was so much fun!  The children loved the
interaction and it was great that they all had a chance to
participate. Your assembly was so well done that the
children were interested, involved and excited throughout.
The children loved the music and singing and the teachers
loved how you mixed in the educational elements. I have
receive lots of compliments on your assembly from
students and teachers."

--Tracy Koponosh, PTA
University Heights School
Hamilton, New Jersey

"Your program was very well suited for a variety of grade
levels and the students loved it.  My favorite part, as well
as the students, was the story creating activity. Any time
the students can directly interact with the author, they all
become fully engaged. What a wonderful way to have the
students’ full attention. I also enjoyed the music
throughout the program.  I think the students took away
so much that will help them in their future career as
student writers."

--Elena Bermudez, Media Specialist,
Mennies Elementary School
Vineland, New Jersey

"It was an amazing and unique presentation.  I'd
recommend your program to other schools and I'd feel as
if I were suggesting a 'gift' that could only give pleasure
and joy.  You deserve a resounding round of applause!"

--Tom Newhard, 2nd Grade Educator
Liberty Bell School
Coopersburg, Pennsylvania


"The best educational assembly we have ever had!"

-- Mercedes Berrios, Principal,
Elizabeth Moore School, Seabrook, New Jersey

eyes to your exciting presentation!  You got down close to
our little people and looked into their eyes with music,
rhythm, poetry and bold graphics...!  I was awed by your
program!"

-- Phil Markley, Teacher
Liberty Bell School
Coopersburg, Pennsylvania


"You were amazing!  This was by far the best author visit
we have ever had at this school!"

Pre-Visit Materials
Assembly coordinators, as you look at the information on my website, including all posted video
segments, keep in mind that I adjust my shows based on the grade levels that are attending each program
and the time in which I have to present it.  Your Pre-K classes, kindergarteners and first graders (Music
& Storytime) will be treated to a program that is designed for their age level, and that is different than
programs performed for older grades.  Each assembly of A Writer's Journey (2nd-8th grades) will be
tailored to be age appropriate for the group in attendance, with material varying based on grade.

If you have never experienced one of my programs in person then you are in for an exciting ride, one that
your staff and students will talk about long after the show is over!  

During my 50-60 minute interactive programs I will not only entertain, but will cover many important
topics including:
