Alison Jackson is always pleased to make author visits.
For live on-line chats with the author, please contact: www.balkinbuddies.com.
Arrangements for personal visits should be made directly with the author. Since it is important that the students be familiar with her books before she arrives, please try to give the children time to read them - or have the teacher read the book aloud. Copies may be obtained from local libraries, or you may order books directly from the publisher or from the author herself. A link to an order form is at the bottom of this page.
Mrs. Jackson prefers two or three group presentations, each lasting 30-50 minutes. Elementary school is preferable, since this is the group at which her books are aimed. The presentation does include puppets and a slide show, so a large screen will be necessary. The author will provide books to sell to the children and teachers, so please send printed order forms home with students, in order that they may come to school with a check made out to Alison Jackson, should they wish to purchase a book:
