A School Visit Like No Other!
Thank you for your interest in bringing me out to visit your school! It would be an honor to share my story and my message with your students. One of my goals for my visit is to inspire your students to live a life that makes the most important people(parents, teachers, coaches, etc) in their lives proud and give them my simple three-step blueprint to achieve that. Also, I hope to encourage them to one day write their own books. Please reach out to some of my references and inquire why a day with me is worth the investment. Thank you in advance for your consideration! -Stan Tucker

I wholeheartedly endorse Stan the Man as a visiting author for any school library. His genuine connection with our students and school community to share his message of kindness continues to benefit our students, well beyond the day that he spent with us!
In addition to his impressive credentials, Stan has a unique talent for connecting with young minds and hearts. His engaging approach to our assemblies, classroom visits and book fair visit fostered curiosity and encouraged active participation for our students. Stan’s presence at our school not only enhanced students' understanding of kindness and empathy, but also motivated them to explore writing their own story and pursuing a journey as a published author. He has also provided rich resources to support our students in the library and classrooms.
Stan left a positive and lasting impression on both students, faculty and parents alike. His commitment to literacy and enthusiasm for sharing his story align perfectly with our school's mission to cultivate a love for learning and kindness. We can’t wait to have him back on campus with us!

Stan's inspiring author visits teach(inspire) students about the joys of reading, writing and the power of kindness.

If you represent one of these schools, please reach out to us to inquire about a speaking engagement and we can figure out how to make it happen!
''Stan's visit was absolutely AMAZING! I can't say enough good things about the way Stan engaged and interacted with our students. He led three assemblies for our very large school, visited classrooms and met with students in a small group. He encouraged kids in their writing and inspired them to be the best that they can be in all areas of their lives! During his visit we could see his desire to truly make every child feel important and to make life-changing connections. His positivity and energy have made a huge impact on our entire school community. He is without a doubt one of the most kind and genuine people I have ever met, and we cannot wait to have him visit our school again! ''
