I offer an entertaining and engaging experience for students, teachers and parents.

Michael Dotsikas regularly gives presentations to inspire children to DREAM BIG and to believe that they can accomplish great things if they set their minds to it. His visits typically consist of a book reading of his critically acclaimed, award-winning children’s picture book, Benjamin Birdie’s First Flight, and a lively, interactive author presentation, followed by a Q&A session.

Michael tailors his presentations for different age groups. His speaking style is friendly, inviting, and engaging, appealing equally to children and adults. Children are riveted with the presentations, while educators compliment the teaching aspect.

"The children love to listen to Michael read and are mesmerized by the illustrations. It is not always easy to find an author that can read to preschoolers and keep them engaged, but Michael has a special gift and listens to all of their questions and answers them
with a smile on his face!"
