Andrea Antico, the author and a former school librarian, will donate an autographed copy of BUSTER THE BULLY or the SUGARPLUM TREE to elementary schools in the Denver metropolitan area. Upon request from the principal or librarian/media specialist, she will read the story or present it digitally to a classroom or a grade level. If desired, Andrea will discuss ways and means of preventing bullying and increasing kindness after the book presentation.
If you have students’ artwork or original pieces about bullying or kindness, they can be posted anonymously or under a first name on kindereads.com. If you wish, we will publish the name of the school, grade level and teacher. Please send them digitally to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Andrea is also available for Book Fairs or Literacy Nights at local elementary schools. A percentage of the sales will be given to the school library. Discounts will be given for the purchase of multiple copies by schools, libraries, parent-teacher and non-profit organizations. She is a storyteller in the Denver group, Spellbinders and is the YAL (Young Authors League) Chair of ELF, the Educational Literacy Foundation of C.I.P.A. (Colorado Independent Publisihers’ Association). Email her with questions about the above.
