Author Visit

Floyd Stokes is the author of 13 books. He has been visiting schools, libraries, Head Start centers and other community locations to read to children for over ten years in all 50 states.

During the school visits, Mr. Stokes will read his books and sing songs. The length of the visit varies depending on the needs of the organization. The assemblies are good for students up to 5th grade. It is best but not necessary to split the students into two groups (Pre-K thru 2nd) and (3rd thru 5th). Not only is the smaller group more manageable but the reading materials and the presentation could be very different.

The visit provides an opportunity to encourage children to read and to discuss the process of writing and creating books. Order books by Floyd Stokes to introduce the students the books to help the visit go better.

Cost – The honorarium varies depending on the costs for travel, lodging, and related expenses.

What people are saying!

Thank you for visiting Little Lambs Preschool. It was an honor for you to be featured during our family night for the past 2 years now. Our families love hearing you read your books to them. The highlight this year was listening to your 2 daughters read and sing along to the books they helped create. The books are catchy, educational, and have beautiful illustrations as well. We read your books to our preschool children often and will continue to buy any new books you produce. We look forward to having you “Super Reader” and your family as part of our yearly Family Night programs for many years to come.

Thank you again,

Jennifer M.-Center Director

The students and staff at Tri-Community had a great time with Mr. Stokes! They loved interacting with the stories as he read them. The older students really enjoyed talking with him about being a writer and good writing practices. Thanks for a fun morning!

Angela Hocking-Reading Specialist

Each time I walk into a visiting author assembly, I think proactively, arranging my second grade students appropriately, so that each student can be a successful audience, in the event that the author visiting is only that, a wonderful author. Floyd Stokes is more than just a wonderful author. He is a motivator, an entertainer and a perfect role model with an excellent message…read! During his visiting author presentation at our school, I watched as he had every child engaged in his stories, had control of his audience, gave the students an opportunity to move and sing, and provided an important message, “Reading and writing stories is fun!” When Floyd visited my local library, I made sure my daughter and I did not miss it!

Thanks, Floyd! You’re so talented!

Dear Mr. Strokes,

Just wanted to say that I greatly enjoyed your talk as guest speaker during Luzerne County Head Start’s all staff meeting on Friday. I absolutely loved “My Glasses”, “Popcorn” and “I Can Do It All By Myself”, and I purchased all three. I am looking forward to using them in my classroom. Thanks for taking some time to share your insight with our team.


Kate B.-Luzerne County Head Start

It’s a great program for promoting reading for children of all ages.
The children look forward to Floyd’s visits.

We LOVED having you. You are so personable and dynamic the kids loved you. Their teachers told me they were talking all afternoon that they had never met a real author before. Thank you for giving them this opportunity.

Welcome to the American Literacy Corporation

A Brief Description of the Organization

The American Literacy Corporation (ALC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The purpose of the ALC is to design and implement supplemental literacy programs that will promote the importance of learning to elementary school students grades K-5. Since the inception of the SuperReader Program in January 2001, SuperReader has performed for over 85,000 children.

The mission of the ALC is to support new and on-going literacy efforts by working with head start programs, schools, daycare centers, libraries, churches, community-based organizations, and other institutions with programs targeting educational enhancement and development for elementary-age (K-5) students.

The need for the American Literacy Corporation according to the National Center for Education Statistics, nearly 4 in 10 American fourth graders are unable to read at the basic level needed for school success. Studies also show that one of the fastest growing industries in the United States is the prison system. Our youth are becoming a part of the Juvenile Delinquent system at alarming rates and younger ages. Since 1985, particularly in Dauphin County, juvenile crimes have more than doubled. The numbers are staggering and it appears that there is no immediate relief insight.

The ALC works with all children to include those living in communities that are ravaged by poverty, drugs and crime and those in overcrowded school districts. Still others, while not lacking financial resources, are in need of innovative educational tools.

Each year a growing number of children and adults suffer from illiteracy. The ALC has been established to combat illiteracy at an early age by working with elementary-aged students. It has been proven that with early intervention the rate of reading failure in the early grades can be reduced to less than 10% as stated by the National Institute of Child Health and Development.

Studies show that reading aloud to young children helps build language skills critical for later reading success (Preventing Reading Difficulties in Young Children, National Research Council, 1998). Children who are read to regularly for several months make great strides in reading comprehension and vocabulary skills (the Power of Reading: Insights from Research, Stephen Krahen, 1993).

“The Boy Who Cried Wolf!”

by Floyd Stokes and illustrated by Sheena Hisiro.

The book is about a boy who sits on the hillside reading books. After he finishes reading the books, he becomes bored and gets into trouble. He is about to learn a valuable lesson. This version is an interesting twist to an old classic
