Tommy Greenwald Author Visit Kit

Grades

3–5, 6–8

Tommy Greenwald loves visiting schools even more than he loves writing books. He makes the kids laugh, but in between jokes he sneaks in some important lessons about reading, writing, storytelling, and having fun doing all three. His Crimebiters and Charlie Joe Jackson series are both based on his real life, and by sharing his personal story he inspires children to realize that their own stories are worth sharing too.
