Are your kids delirious about dinosaurs? Are they mad about meerkats or curious about cactuses? Then they will love learning about them from veteran children’s book author Rhonda Lucas Donald. Her presentation, designed to accompany Dino Treasures, Dino Tracks, and award-winning book, Deep in the Desert, is full of fun facts, activities, and singing! Please contact Rhonda if you are interested in having her read from her books or speak to your group.
The 30–50-minute presentation includes reading and singing from one or more books and learning more about the animals featured. Kids can walk in dinosaur footprints, learn how fossil footprints were made, and meet Spike, the baby Stegosaurus! They can also create a fun cactus craft, if desired. There will be plenty of time to answer children’s questions about the books or about writing in general. Presentations may be tailored to suit your needs. Due to the hands-on nature of the presentations, small groups of one to three classes are preferred.
Rates: $75 per presentation plus travel expenses. Special rates for multiple presentations may apply.
