Our School Program
- 680+ Schools
- The Best Author/student program in America
- A partnership between schools and Martin & Delia Wach, popular authors and illustrator of 9 published childrens books.
- Their traditional program is story telling about the creatures of the rainforest and why you should never, never, never sit on a tarantula!
- Their new program is about their adventures in building urban gardens (guerrilla garden).
- "Adventures in Writing" Martin and Delia's 5th book is a 32 page book on how to write a 32 page Childrens Picture Book.

Cost to the school?
Cheap but Trendy, which is very important in today's economy. Martin and Delia share the income from the sales of the books with either the PTA or school. Martin's assistant will explain all the details and the benefits to the school.
