Author Visit: Interested in an author talk for your upper elementary or middle school students? Looking for a fun read-along book or book club selection to kick-off the school year? Consider Grounded for Good to battle the “4th grade slump.” Main character Derek Dawson hit that slump and stayed there all through middle school. A bright kid with creative energy means that school is “boring” and his misdirected energy often lands him in the principal’s office. One summer that changes. A juggling book and a desperate situation lead him to discover a new passion that brings him applause instead of punishment.
Dawn is available to visit your school or library to share her experience writing the Moonbeam Award winning book Grounded for Good with your students. Her talk can focus on the writing process, character education, or lessons learned by both the author and the main character.
*Hands-on workshops and staff training programs are also available. Visit FlowCircus.com for more information.
