Doug is an award winning children’s book author. His books are excellent for improving reading skills with a high degree of interactivity for children, teachers and parents.
Doug’s storytelling is based on the idea that children and adults should be at play as much as possible.
He believes play includes two intertwined qualities: awe and concentration. Awe is the ability to see the beauty and wonder of life in anything and everything; concentration is a focus on the joy of experiencing simple, everyday activities.
Doug is available for readings and signings at your school, organization, or special event. He reads Who’s Got the Face? and The Fable of the Snake Named Slim at libraries, bookstores, primary and elementary grades K–3, book fairs, nonprofit children’s programs, and fundraising events. He also teaches parents how to optimize the experience of reading to a child.
He holds a BS in Communications from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Communications and an MA in Communications from William Paterson University.
