Jim Aylesworth Author Visit Kit

Current home
Chicago, Illinois, United States of America


PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5, 6–8

Award-winning author and teacher Jim Aylesworth enjoys visiting schools and he has many valuable lessons for young and old alike about the importance of courage, dedication and perseverance. His stories are filled with generous doses of loud sounds, rhythms and rhymes, which his 25 years as a first grade teacher have taught are the elements children like in a story.

He can relate the experience of being an author as only a veteran teacher can, and he inspires groups large and small to include more reading and writing in their lives.
