ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Robin N. Barone is the author of the new children's book series Where Is Robin? She is an avid traveler has lived in New York, Washington D.C., Buenos Aires, Paris, and Singapore in addition to visiting over 50 countries and 5 continents. 

ABOUT THE BOOKWhere Is Robin? Los Angeles
Readers will fall in love with the "City of Angels" as Robin guides them on a tour of Los Angeles. From the Marina del Rey and beautiful Venice Beach, travel to the heart of downtown to visit astonishing landmarks such as the Hollywood sign, the Walk of Fame, Sunset Boulevard, Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, Century City, and so much more. Through all of her adventures, Robin connects with local people and places to discover their culture, history, and why they are unique.

LENGTH & TOPIC OF PRESENTATION
45 minutes.

For students younger than grades 2/3, the presentation is a story time.

For older students, the presentation is an interactive workshop called “Dream, plan, go.” where Robin uses book writing and traveling experiences to teach resiliency. Each student develops an idea over the course of 45 minutes into actionable steps. My presentation also includes fabulous pictures from my adventures abroad. For the interactive presentations students need to bring a pen. I provide the handout. I provide direction during the lesson and I ask teachers to help me guide their students particularly to provide attention to students that need greater attention.
