“It was a pleasure to have Chris Everheart present a program at our library. He not only brought his reading robot, Crank, but also gave the children an informational history of robots using graphics. He captivated the children with his appropriate age level presentation. When he finished reading from one of his new books, the children had their hands up anxious to answer recap questions that Chris posed. I would definitely ask Chris to come again to offer another STEM program at the library.”

A passion for connecting kids with books
As a childhood reluctant reader turned award-winning author of books for young readers, I’m passionate about connecting children and teens with books.
I understand from the inside the challenges teachers, librarians, and parents face motivating their kids to enjoy reading and learning. I experienced firsthand the childhood frustration and low self-esteem that result from reading and learning deficiencies.
A visit with an enthusiastic author who’s overcome learning difficulties helps make reading relevant and achievable to even the most reluctant of readers.
