This is Kaylee. She’s holding her new writer’s notebook.
During all my school visit presentations, I always hold up my writer’s notebook. I tell kids I take it with me wherever I go because I never know when I’m going to be inspired.
I also share a picture of my writer’s notebook from when I was in second grade.
After seeing this at one of my school visits recently, Kaylee decided she wanted to start her own writer’s notebook. She writes in it every day. It’s always with her in her backpack wherever she goes. Kaylee loves being able to write and sketch and keep all of her ideas in one place. She now loves writing outside of class.
Yeah, author visits matter. They matter lots.

Book A Visit
Author visits absolutely make a difference! The effect isn’t quantifiable in the trendy current way that EVERYTHING needs a measurable result, but allowing students to speak with working professionals opens their eyes to all kinds of possibilities, and inspires. I’m an author-illustrator today because of an author visit when I was in 5th grade!
Absolutely, Brian. Their value is immeasurable.
Author visits matter! Books fly off the shelves after authors visit my school! All of your books from our library, Phil, are now in our students’ little hands and being shared in their classrooms and homes. They will carry your words about writing and creating books in their hearts and minds long after they leave my school. Priceless.
