Review quote

"Not only is this a book of alphabetically listed authors, illustrators, and storytellers willing to present to schools, it is a manual on how to host the actual visit. Selecting the presenter, arranging the transportation, food, and lodging, and how to advertise and prepare the audience is all discussed step by step, and included in a timeline. Each speaker listed has been carefully researched for availability and the grade-level appropriateness of the presentation. The presenters are first alphabetized by state and then by last name. Included in the listing is information on how to contact the presenter, what they charge, and a brief description of the presentation. This book is an excellent resource for finding authors, illustrators, or storytellers willing to come to schools, as well as an excellent resource for the nuts and bolts of hosting the visit. Librarians would find this an excellent addition to their own reference shelf. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
