School and Library Activities For Kids
There is nothing we love better than being out there among our readers
Rogue Bear Press was created to do more than just tell great stories : We want to help kids learn and grow. In order to facilitate our goals, Rogue Bear Press produces a number of entertaining educational enrichment programs. Our authors are constantly performing book-themed programs at schools, libraries and bookstores, as well as conducting book talks, book readings, and book signings.
Our premier event is The Library Skills-building MONSTER HUNT program ( click here to go the the Monster Hunt website ), a grand adventure based upon the concepts and characters from the book, Will Allen and the Great Monster Detective, in which kids develop research skills as they track down and capture a lurking monster! See below for more details.
And we cultivate the writer inside every child with Destination: INSPIRATION! Story Crafting Program - school assemblies and writing workshops that educate, entertain, and inspire. For more information, click here.
. We also lead kids on an adventure exploring the hidden wonders secreted within the books on your shelves in our Library Treasure Hunt - where Kids search for hidden treasures - the kind only found within the walls of the library!
And another great option: history comes alive while searching for adventure in our magical History Mystery!

"Thank you for your wonderful program. It was captivating, slyly educational, and the children had lots of fun!"
Glen Ridge Public Library
"We recently hosted Jason Edwards' Monster Hunt at our library. The kids loved it, and developed library search skills without even noticing! Jason worked really well with both young and old searchers-he clearly loves what he does, has lots of experience and a great sense of humor. If you are looking for a clever, fun program, this is a great option." --Teresa Bueti, Children's Services, Chappaqua Public Library
In the MONSTER HUNT, kids develop vital academic skills - while having a grand adventure! Children build research and deduction skills as they learn to use library resources to find clues that will help them capture a lurking monster! All participants have their own sets of clues to find - there is never any competing over clues, and so every child proceeds at his or her own pace and everyone succeeds! In the end, everyone is called together to share their clues, which they use to track down and capture the monster. Then they all are rewarded with their own Monster Detective badges!
The Monster Hunt, which is conducted at schools, libraries, and bookstores, is based upon the characters and concepts developed in the book, Will Allen and the Great Monster Detective.
