Bring the Land of… Children’s Books to your school!
Katie Mullaly, author and publisher would love to come to your school to share these fun, important and unique books with your students and teachers.Thanks to Katie’s years of working with kids of all ages – from teaching skiing and karate to sharing her love of geology – she brings her energy and love of interacting with her youngest fans!
During the visit:
Books She Will Read: Depending on the age of the group and the length of time, Katie can read one or all three books, Land of OR, Land of AND, and Land of I AM. For the younger grades (kindergarten and first), Land of AND is recommended as the only read. The older grades will enjoy all three books.
Discussion and Questions: For Land of OR, Katie has questions for the kids relating to good choice making and the Options found in the book. Land of AND has questions around acceptance, uniqueness and inclusion. With Land of I AM, the discussion will revolve around everyone’s best “I AMs.” In addition, Katie is also the publisher of these books and many kids like to ask questions about the writing and publishing world. We can’t forget, the topic of the Yabbut will certainly be included in all readings. If you would like a preview of the questions before the presentation, Katie will happily send them to you. Feel free to add additional questions if you like.
Grade Levels: Although the books are categorized for ages 5 to 10, the topics they cover are important to all ages. No matter your age group, audience members will certainly gain something from the readings. In addition, if you have a class that is discussing publishing, writing, poetry or another topic that is in alignment with the books, bring Katie in to present. Your students could gain a lot.
Recording: If you would like to record the presentations, please do. We just ask that you share the recording and any other images with us to use for our marketing.

Equipment: If the group is large, more than 20 kids, I recommend projecting the books on to a screen so that all of the beautiful detail of the illustrations can be seen. I will bring a computer (PC) with the presentation on it. For larger groups and auditoriums, please provide a microphone so that I may reach the entire audience.
