Jazlyn J School Presenation

Each reading or workshop event is tailored to the reading and program needs of the teacher and the students. The visits are meant to entertain, enlighten and educate kids in a variety of ways. Each story is meant to encourage kids to find the bright side of each and every day by sharing their favourite parts of the day. We believe that a positive mind will give back positively in every aspect of life and be better prepared to handle life’s challenges along the way.

The appearance includes a live and interactive projector-to-screen reading presentation (of a Jazlyn J story of choice), as well as an opportunity to ask questions and share thoughts. Very upbeat and motivational. Kids love it! The Jazlyn J series tackles topics such as bullying, recycling, jealousy, goal setting, computers, danger symbols, self expression, self-acceptance, sharing, telling time and more.
