"Teachers and librarians take note: this is a guy you want talking to kids about history. Book him if you can!"
- Elizabeth Bluemle PW ShelfTalker

"Steve Sheinkin has proven several times to be a great boon to our students. His presentations on both his subject (history) and the details and nuances of writing a book are always smart, age-appropriate, education-savvy and loads of fun. I have had students comment to me how much they enjoyed Steve's visits and teachers tell me how rich his discussions and interactions are."
- Jesse Karp, Librarian, Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School, New York, NY

"Thanks to Steve, Westward Expansion was brought to life in my classroom. They debated Manifest Destiny, created a 3-D homage to the Sager family's journey, and honestly shared how Social Studies was boring before this book. Thanks for all of the great stories and the excitement they bring to our classroom!"
- Julia Hainer-Violand, Teacher, Oyster-Adams Bilingual School, Washington, D.C.

"Steve was totally relaxed and spoke directly to our students, encouraging their questions and comments. Steve spoke about how he made the transition from writing for textbooks to writing his own books. He also described the research involved in writing nonfiction. Our students enjoyed the interesting stories about historical figures. Several told me they found Steve interesting and enjoyable. My principal and teachers also enjoyed his visit."
- Pauline Herr, Librarian, LaGrange Middle School, Lagrangeville, NY
I'm always happy to visit schools, libraries, book fairs: pretty much any place that'll let me swap stories and talk history.
