If you are interested in a Tukor’s Journey classroom presentation, I would love to come visit your school!

During the visit, we’ll discuss how storytelling isn’t just for authors, it’s in every part of our life. We all tell stories. And we all write our own grand story—the story of our life, and a powerful one it is. And we’ll talk about the storytelling process and write a short story together that highlights the use of character descriptions and suspense. We’ll learn about some of the unique animals and places in the book. The kids walk away with a little inspiration—a seed that inspires them to understand that we all have a mission in life. A purpose. We all write a powerful story no matter who we are.
