Literature Live - Author Letter
My name is Chris Rumble. I am so looking forward to my Author Visit with the great kids at Brookstone School on November 6th and November 7th!
I believe I was put on this planet to encourage the next generation to realize their greatness. Reading is a big part of that equation.
During our event, I will give all that is in me to get the kids fired up about diving into great books in order to feed their minds and broaden their horizons!
You can help by getting your child excited about our event. Letting them know what a GREAT DAY it is going to be and that we are going to have a lot of fun with music and illustrating and audience participation!
Also, let me encourage you to use this event as a reason to experience great books together with your child. Please see my "Seven Great Reasons to Read to Your Child" included in the post-script.

The day of our event, they will be especially motivated to explore the books that I have written and illustrated: The Adventures of Uncle Stinky! (Random House). Kids love these highly illustrated chapter books.
At $6, my books are relatively inexpensive. If the school is doing a book sale, the books can be purchased there. I autograph every book and include a personal note of encouragement to each child. You may also pre-order them by Monday, November 5th.
Thanks for investing in your child by getting them excited about our event!
I can't wait to see the great kids at your school face-to-face!
We are going to have a BLAST...;and inspire your child at the same time!
For the kids,
P.S. Here are the basics of a talk I give entitled "Seven Great Reasons to Read to Your Child:"
WHEN YOU READ WITH YOUR CHILD, YOU WILL...;
1. OPEN THEIR MINDS.
Books are the best way to introduce new and valuable concepts and ideas to your child's rapidly developing mind.
2. BROADEN THEIR WORLD.
Books introduce our children to heroes and take our children to amazing places and cultures to which most of us do not have the time or resources to take them.
3. MODEL READING FOR THEM.
Children do what they SEE us doing. When they see you enjoying books, they will, too.
4. HELP THEM WIND DOWN.
One of my children was extremely high-energy! Reading together helped her slow down and fall asleep.
5. END THEIR DAY WITH HAPPINESS.
In all that our world offers, what they REALLY want is one-on-one time with YOU.
6. ENJOY A HEART CONNECTION WITH THEM.
No other activity creates a heart connection like reading a book together in a quiet room at the end of a day.
7. GAIN THEIR UNDIVIDED ATTENTION.
In those heart-connected moments, you have your child's full an undivided attention to say the things their hearts long to hear. Things like, "You are so precious and valuable to me. I am proud of you. I believe in you. I love you."
