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 has a number of entertaining educational programs that we conduct. Our authors are constantly on tour giving book readings, book signings, and performing book-themed programs at schools, libraries and bookstores. Our premier event is The Library Skills-building MONSTER HUNT program, based upon the concepts and characters from the book, Will Allen and the Great Monster Detective. See below for more details.
We also cultivate the writer inside every child with our Destination: INSPIRATION! Story Crafting Program - school assemblies and writing workshops that educate, entertain, and inspire. For more information, click here.
.And, new for 2013, children explore the hidden wonders secreted within the books on your shelves in our Dig Into a Book Treasure Hunt! Kids search for buried treasures - the kind only found within the walls of the library!
Or have your young patrons discover marvels from across the globe in our You R Here library orienteering Scavenger Hunt - in which young adventurers EXPLORE THE WORLD...without ever leaving the library!And another great option: make a splash searching for adventure in our magical Seven Seas Treasure Hunt!

"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
The Monster Hunt, based on the characters and concepts developed in the book, Will Allen and the Great Monster Detective, is a combination spy decoding game / scavenger hunt that we conduct at schools, libraries, and bookstores. In the book, Will Allen learns that to overcome the monsters that haunt him, he must confront the fears that gave rise to them, and that is the pervasive theme of the hunt as well.
