MORE BANG FOR YOUR BOOK
A Storytime Bootcamp

- Essential features for an excellent storytime.
- Confidence-boosting crowd engagement tricks for school visits, bookstore readings, and even one-on-one with your own kids.
- How thinking of your book's ultimate performance can help even while drafting your works in progress.
- How to leverage the picture book form for storytelling and connecting with readers.
- And much more!
