(Kaza says, "Sharing the love of reading and writing is one
of my joys, so this means tons to me!")
I have been teaching for thirty years. Never have I seen such a wonderful, meaningful and motivating presentation for young children!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
AMAZING describes author Kaza Kingsley. Our school loved having her visit. Kaza's presentation captivated the students and inspired them to read and write. Her warmth and enthusiasm left a lasting impression on both the students and the teachers. She truly is AMAZING!

My 5th and 6th grade students were
captivated with Kaza Kingsley’s enthusiasm and friendliness.
Even my reluctant readers have been "gobbling up" her new
book. What's even more special about Kaza is her "kid
friendly" approach. She is the only author I know who will
respond to each student's email. At least twice a week, my
day begins with a comment from one of my students telling me
that he/she received an email from Kaza. It's been six weeks
since her visit, and the kids are still talking about it
like it was yesterday.
Here are a few comments from my students:
"This was the best experience I've ever had."
“This is the best book I've ever read."
"This book took me on an adventure."
"Once you start reading this book, you can't stop."
"She told us about what really happens when you're writing a
book, and I never knew any of that."
"This was a great opportunity that I'll never forget."
And last but not least, "When will she come back?"

What a treasure of a presentation!
Mrs. Kingsley has the ability to share her joy of writing on
that children can appreciate. She is an absolutely
presenter who magically promotes writing and reading. The
children were transfixed for an entire hour, listening to an
incredibly talented author. She also drew them into her
world of fantasy by having them create a story with her. Any
school would be fortunate to have her speak. Thank you,

Kaza Kingsley's visit to our school
was magical for the students. She
was extremely engaging and really connected with the kids.
Kingley's book talk, my 8th grade students voted to read her
Rex for our class book club. It's great too see our students
enthusiastic about reading.

What a wonderful gift we were
given! Ms. Kingsley so understands how students learn, how
to vary a presentation to keep their interest and how to
keep them spellbound. Her highly infectious personality,
bright smile and wonderful information about her life both
as an early writer and currently was so interesting to our
budding authors. Book her, you won't be disappointed!

We have authors come to our school every year, and Kaza’s
presentation was the most inspiring one I’ve seen. I loved
the way she gave students a visual comparison of the writing
process to that of fine art. It is exactly what we want to
demonstrate to kids in our school. And the students were
completely involved, engaged, and interested!

Kaza Kingsley's presentation was excellent! Kaza is a
vibrant, enthusiastic spreaker who knows how to make her
presentation perfect for elemetary age students. When she
read an excerpt from one of her books, our students were
spellbound. Kaza then took the students through the writing
process in a clear, step-by-step dynamic method. At Rod
Kelley school we were pleased to have such a creative person
as Kaza share her talents with us.

Kaza has appeared at our elementary school and inspired
our students to think about their writing. Kaza's engaging
personality and enthusiasm for the craft of writing are
truly infectious. She has become a favorite author of our
fourth and fifth grade readers.

What a great experience for students and staff alike to
hear and see
what goes into the creative process of writing a novel! The
imaginations were really flowing, and the staff were
inspired with ideas to bring back into the classroom.

We have many authors come to our school. But none that I can remember were women! So you inspired me to write. I used to come home, do my homework, and play video games. But since you came I started a story!
