PhD cell biologist, Jewel Daniel and 11 year old science enthusiast, Lynelle Martin make a great team for author visits. Their presentations involve a mixture of reading, discussions, craft, and audience participation that harness the attention of the children in their audience.
These students come away with:
- an increased interest in reading,
- new knowledge about the biology of the cell, and
- inspiration at seeing someone in their age range speaking to them as an author.
The presentations can be tailored to younger children but are most suitable for US grades four to six depending on your school’s curriculum.
If you are the parent of elementary school aged children or you are a teacher or principal in the United States and you would like to find out about having Jewel and Lynelle visit your school, contact us by email at

Do they ever escape?
