Kalli Dakos has been celebrating the school world since the release of her best-selling book, If You’re Not Here, Please Raise Your Hand. She has written many collections of school poems that include five ILA-CBC Children’s Choice Selections – A Funeral in the Bathroom, Our Principal Promised to Kiss a Pig, If You’re Not Here, Please Raise Your Hand, Don’t Read This Book Whatever You Do!, The Goof Who Invented Homework and The Bug in Teacher’s Coffee. As a former teacher and reading specialist, she uses her educational background to design school visits that provide sound reinforcement for standards of learning disguised as high-energy fun and filled with audience participation.
