No More Rules!

This interactive program for school and library visits gets students thinking about rules in an engaging way. The presentation lasts 45-60 minutes and is appropriate for grades 2-6.

No More Rules! includes:

  • A true/false quiz about 10 crazy laws called “You Can’t Do That!”
  • Examples of writers and books that break the rules
  • Reading from Trouble in the Trees where we act out the protest scene and make NOISE
  • Time for questions

“The students enjoyed your reading from chapter 9 of ‘Trouble in the Trees’ and they loved protesting along with the characters in your book.  We all enjoyed learning about your journey in getting your books published and we hope that there are many more.”

Laurie McDonald, Bertha Kennedy School

“Yolanda engaged the students immediately… by talking about rules.  Children always have something to say about rules so she had them hooked from the onset.  Yolanda’s enthusiasm and her presentation content were highly appealing.  We would highly recommend Yolanda for a reading to any elementary aged classes.”

Susan Rogers, Nakusp Library

“Your program… was fun and interactive and everyone who attended had a good time.  The ‘You Can’t Do That’ game really engaged the children and you held their attention while reading from your book.  This is not always easy when there are a wide variety of ages in the audience, so job well done!” 

Allison Knights, Burnaby Public Library
