Since Heidi and Reed are a certified therapy dog team, they are able to make school and library visits together. During the Rescuing Reed programs, Heidi and Reed usually spend about 30 minutes with each group (sometimes doing as many as 4 groups per visit).
The program generally follows the following outline:
- Heidi reads Rescuing Reed: The Little Dog Who Could to the group
- Heidi discusses the importance of “being someone who makes a difference in other people’s lives”
- Question & Answer time
- Visiting time with Reed (for those who want to pet him)
- Book signings (when applicable)
Heidi often sends black & white illustrations from the book with the children to color when they get home. She can tailor her programs upon request and depending upon the age group of the audience.
At this time, Heidi does not charge for author visits but is compensated for travel (when traveling outside of Chester County, PA). When she is offered a stipend during a visit, she happily donates those monies to animal rescues who support the Rescuing Reed project.
