School Visits

Half Day or Full Day

(Contact Kris for pricing)

I love School Visits! I have a super interactive high-energy presentation tailored for each age group. For the younger groups, I incorporate my book – Be My ValenSLIME (WaterBrook/Penguin Random House), illustrated by NYT best-selling Cori Doerrfeld. For the older groups, I focus on storytelling and character creation through an interactive Writer’s Workshop loaded with tons of FUN!

Sample age breakdown:

  • PK: 20-min. Intro, read book, sing a song.
  • K/1: 30-min. Intro, read book, behind scenes of – How a Book is Made.
  • 2/3: 45-min. Writing Workshop, character creation.
  • 4/5: 50-min. Writing Workshop, story techniques.

Examples of what students can expect:

Audience participation. Education. Entertainment.

PLUS Gargantuan FUN!

Kris Tarantino’s author visit at our school was full of energy! Our kids loved the fun interactive presentation which was perfectly tailored for each age group. We also had a blast downloading the free Activity Kit. The kids made Snoodle hats and I created heart shaped slime gifts for each student with the adorable Snoodle logo on them. The students decorated our library with pictures of Snoodle that they colored! They absolutely love SNOODLE! Engaging author visit and so much fun! We can’t wait to have her come back!”

“Our author visit with Kris Tarantino was one of the highlights of our school year. She naturally engaged all of our kiddos with Be My ValenSlime, and her interactive presentation about the publication process was a huge hit! We Can’t wait to host her again!”
