Mr. Healy adapts his presentation to any grade level. All ages of students and their teachers were spell-bound and enjoyed his sense of humor as he read his books.

C.M Healy was an absolute delight to have in our school! His presentation captivated the students and encouraged them to participate, all the while, tantalizing their love of reading! Students are still asking for his return, as well as his books, months later!

The students thoroughly enjoyed his visit. His personality was engaging and he related well to the students; they ‘got’ him! They were highly interested in what he had to talk about, and I am so glad he took the time to come visit with us.

Mr. Healy recently visited my elementary school. He did a magnificent job here! We have kids from ages 3-12 and no matter what class he had, he kept them engaged the whole time! His books were amazing and full of life lessons! I loved how he involved the students by having them help act out what the character was doing. Also, who wouldn’t be having fun with his overall performance of his crazy socks, playing the banjo, and singing the booger song?! All our kids and teachers had a great time and loved having him!

We were so honored to have C.M. Healy visit us at Franklin Elementary School! He related well with all our students from Kindergarten to 5th grade. His humor, writing talents, and banjo skills entertained all! Even after his performance, students are still talking about his books, crazy socks, and him. Thank you for spending a day with us, Mr. Healy!

Mr. Healy came to our school and did a fun and educational review of his books. All of the children were very entertained and had a great time. Not an easy task, as our school has children 2 years through 8th grade. The children loved his humor and his fabulous socks!

C.M. Healy is an educator who has mastered the ability to write intriguing books for a wide range of readers. During a school presentation, I witnessed two things: the excitement he generates and his command of an audience through entertaining stories that students can relate to.
— (Pam Dixon, Library Media Specialist – Lucy Franklin Elementary) Blue Springs, MO
Mr. Healy has a presence that won’t be ignored. He captivates everyone in the room with his stories, socks, and songs. The entire school has been abuzz about his visit and how much they would love for him to return.

Reviews from Students

Mr. Healy, Thank you for visiting our school! You really were a wonderful treat to see and listen to. I didn’t have to tape my eyelids open to get to the end of your talk. I was laughing and truly enjoyed listening to you recite your poems.

Mr. Healy, Usually when authors come to schools to talk to kids, they are really boring. They just talk about themselves and their books with no enthusiasm. You were so fun with us and you thought us a lot of great things. Thank you for coming to our school and sharing about yourself and your book.
