Description of the Author’s Presentation

Secrets of Bearhaven

Grades 3-5
45 minutes

With a world as rich as Bearhaven, there’s plenty of fun for kids to engage in. K.E. Rocha’s presentation takes children deeper into the series’ most exciting elements, teaches students to speak bear language, includes a game for learning bear facts, and provides a behind-the-scenes look at the book writing process. The presentation ends with a Q&A session, and always leaves students inspired to read and write stories of their own.
