Most importantly, Bruce inspired our students. In almost every classroom, children are talking about writing and illustrating and we have seen an increase of children in the “Author’s Chair” reading their newest work.

Hearing from a published author about his own process validated the work students are doing. His visit brought together the key elements we hope to accentuate during Book Week — a love of reading, a love of writing, and a celebration of the stories that connect us.

The students can’t stop talking about you today! There isn’t ONE Bruce Hale book in my library right now. Thank you, again, for sharing your knowledge, motivation, encouragement, humor and enthusiasm with all our students.

Students were engaged and inspired. They continue to eagerly read his books, and some have stated that they want to follow in his footsteps and write. He is officially our school’s ‘favorite author.’

I highly encourage anyone who is considering inviting Bruce Hale as a visiting author to do so! He was able to engage our preschool students up to our high school students, and our parents — sometimes with only ten minutes to adapt his presentation. Hosting an author can be stressful, but he is so easy to work with. I cannot recommend Bruce Hale highly enough!

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.
