Carolyn Gillette, Librarian, Dubois Public Library, Dubois, WY
"We are thrilled to have your National Parks books in our library. They are part of who we are and why we live here. I have been in indoor and outdoor education for 25 years starting with NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) and then in the public schools. Currently I am the Dubois Children's Librarian. Your series is beautifully designed and engaging for all ages. The combination of illustrations, photographs threaded together with a great story line is perfect. It may well encourage young writers to create travel logs of their own! Can't wait to see the book on the Tetons! Thank you for the great addition to our library!"

Are you interested in having an author visit your school? My author visits offer a variety of small and large group programs including: writing workshops, weather, GATE instruction, national park stories, and literacy nights, among other topics.
"If you are interested in inviting an author to your school, you should invite Mike Graf! Lincoln Elementary School in Yuba City, CA has been hosting an Author Day for nearly two decades and the response to Mike Graf's visit was by far the most enthusiastic, well-received, and positive feedback we have had in all that time. Mike captivated our students and staff during his presentations with his own amazing experiences and how he incorporates those into his books. After the assemblies with Mike, I kid you not, our students were begging us to write." - Nancy Teague, Third Grade Teacher, Lincoln Elementary, Yuba City, CA
