“Levi’s presentations at Parkside Elementary School were a huge success. The students loved interacting with a real author and meeting the main characters from his book; BARNEY & LEXI: LOST IN LAWRENCEVILLE. Silence came over the excited students as he read to the classes. He adjusted his presentations  for the different grade levels. Teaching students about his journey as an author inspired students and gave them confidence to write their own stories. He has personally autographed 74 copies of BARNEY & LEXI: LOST IN LAWRENCEVILLE for Parkside Elementary Students.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at cfelty@cusd20.net.

“Mr. Fox did a great job with his classroom presentation. He kept the students engaged and involved the entire time, which is no small feat! They thoroughly enjoyed it. He talked about what is involved in being a writer and about where he gets his ideas. He discussed the amount of work involved, but also how enjoyable it is for him. The students loved the stories about his family’s pets. Mr. Fox is a very good storyteller: down to earth and humorous, and he made the characters come alive for us as he spoke about his books. He also spent time talking to the children individually and posed for pictures with the class. It was exciting for my students to see that a real-live author can come from anywhere, even from a small town nearby.”

“Mr. Fox gave a wonderful presentation for our second grade studetns! He explained, in terms they all could understand, his job as an author. He talked about how he chose his characters, how writing a book takes lots of time, and how you make many changes and corrections. Mr. Fox kept the students engaged during his whole presentation. It was great, and we are looking forward to having him visit next year’s students!”

– Colleen Litherland, 2nd Grade, South Elementary School

“I ordered a copy of this book for my two kids and when it arrived my little guy saw it and asked if I would read it to him. He sat listening attentively as I read him the entire book. This is pretty cool for a 5 year old and is a tribute to the book! I thoroughly enjoyed the story-line and will definitely be reading it again to my kids!”

-Coyte Cooper, PhD., Bestselling Author, MAKE YOUR MARK

“My kids loved the book Barney & Lexi : Lost in Lawrenceville. My son said, “It was one of those books I could not put down”. Seeing them so excited to see what was next for Barney and Lexi was wonderful as a parent!”
