A teacher said, “My students have been very interested in writing books lately. They choose it for break times and love to share their stories…. Thank you, Bruce Hale, for being so inspirational to my students!”

His personal story of transformation, from a TV-loving couch potato to an avid reader and successful writer, left us all inspired. His delivery, humor, and artistry will keep even the wiggliest kiddos engaged. We love Bruce Hale!!!

You clearly made such a positive impression on so many people, and we feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to welcome you to our school. We all learned a lot, laughed a lot, and felt so inspired.

Bruce is very easy to work with and has a wonderful personality for school visits. He is a great storyteller and easily holds the children’s attention. After the Author’s Faire, a special day student connected with him enough to go back to her room and reproduce all of his artwork, a gifted fifth grader spent the afternoon playing with language, and all over our neighborhood, children spent the weekend reading Bruce’s books.

As a coordinator for our author visits, I struggle to find authors that meet the needs of our primary and intermediate classes. Bruce has a variety of books that easily span our TK-6th grade students. He also met the demands of presenting to all grade levels by creating presentations that were unique to each group and incorporating teaching strategies to keep students engaged and entertained.

We second graders loved, loved, loved Bruce Hale’s presentation. From laughing at Chet Gecko’s punny adventures to being inspired by Bruce’s own stories, we left this presentation filled with the possibilities of the imagination!

Hi what is the meassege of the story
It’s more about the mystery than the message. And the mystery is, who’s trying to get Chet’s janitor pal, Maureen DeBree, fired?
