Do you have any other books?
Not yet! Please follow us on facebook hear about our upcoming projects.
Can parents come?
Sure! Our presentations are often praised for being as entertaining for parents as they are for kids.
We need a projector that we can plug our laptop into, such as an In-Focus. We need enough space for all the students, plus a little space “on stage” for us to move around. Please note that our presentations are LOUD and run the risk of disturbing neighboring classrooms. For the gameshow presentation, we’ll also need 3 chairs. We do not need audio equipment.
Do I have to send out order forms?
Giving students a chance to own a personalized copy of the book is one of the benefits having an author or illustrator visit your school. However we realize that the cost of our books is outside the budget of some families. We ultimately leave it up to you to decide the appropriateness of sending out order forms at your school. We will donate a copy of our book to your school library so that families who choose not to buy will still have access to the book.
What does your book cost?
The retail cost is currently $22. When you book a school visit, your students and teachers can purchase an autographed copy it for $17.
How many students can I have in one presentation?
Groups of three or four classes are ideal, but larger groups have also worked. Groups of over a hundred are generally too large for these WILD and INTERACTIVE presentations. If you budget does not allow for multiple presentations, please let us know. We will work with you to find the best option for your school.
I’m concerned about the game show. Will some students be losers?
We are extremely sensitive to the feelings of the brave students who answer trivia in front of their peers during our game show. Students who struggle to come up with an answer can get help from the audience. The game does have a “grand prize winner,” while the two other students “become judges.” All three contestants will win actual bananas, a prize we chose because it inspires more laughs than envy. The environment is extremely fun and lighthearted. That being said, we encourage you to chose confident students who understand that its just a game.
Are you available for other types of events such as a book signing at our book fair or speaking at a PTA meeting?
Absolutely! Let us know what you’re got in mind, and feel free to put us in contact with your book fair facilitator.
What do your visits cost?
We love what we do, and we want to share it with as many children as possible. If our fees are not in your budget, please contact us to discuss other options for having us visit. Please email Grace@TheSleepyAnimals.com for current pricing.
