Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

First, I’ll share some of my background on how I went from working in Silicon Valley to being a published children's book author. Then I’ll perform a storytime reading cover-to-cover of my award-winning children's book, Sunny Days, which placed in the top five for book of the year.

After the reading, I’ll deconstruct some of the book's illustrations to show how they were made, and share the creative process that took it from idea to product.

Finally, we’ll have an open discussion where you can ask questions about the creative or business aspects of creating children's books, my backstory, or advice about how to move forward with your awesome story idea.

P.S. This Experience is GREAT for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.

I’m an award-winning children's book author with six published works and a decade in the field. I was fortunate to read my stories to over 11,000 students in 2019 alone and am excited to now bring this experience to Airbnb. My current work includes creating children's books for ex-NBA athletes, non-profits, businesses, and individual commissions.

My niece absolutely loved storytelling with Jesse. He shared pictures with her that inspired his book, and she just loved being able to interact with him. This was an incredible experience, and I recommend booking Jesse if you have little ones or if you work in a school!

Our family really enjoyed our experience today with Jesse. Our daughters are 10 and 11 years old and we each enjoyed hearing about how Jesse evolved into a writer. We enjoyed learning about the overcoming of obstacles (like funding his first book) and the support that helped him along the way. We liked to learn about the methods or structure that goes into writing children’s books and also to learn how authors work with the illustrators to achieve a final product. It is a different process than any of us had imagined. Jesse was fun to interact with and his stories were great. We feel like we made a new friend. We highly recommend Jesse’s experience.

Experience this virtual storytelling with your kids, grandkids, or just the kid in you. Jesse Byrd has a definite point of view to share, found in the plot construction, characters, and color choices in his children's books. My Florida-bound self (as in "stuck" in my FL house) shared the experience with a London mother and her 2 children...clearly not a homogeneous group...yet Mr. Byrd included targeted comments and friendly quips, interspersed with readings from two of his books, as well as previews from his new series in development. Additionally, to demonstrate how story ideas develop, he took us on a photo trip to Dubai, Thailand and Africa, places meant to stimulate and inspire. (My particular favorite was the kissing the giraffe gambit, although the sky-high meal came in a close second.) Need to connect to your more-than-socially-distanced grandkids, nieces, nephews? "Zoom-up" and share this experience together/apart. As well, you will want to get his books for your own kid collection--I'm headed online now to search for some.

I signed up to this storytime for my 4 year old daughter for her bedtime treat as it caught my eye. I loved the authors passion and sharing screens to see the books. He was really great at communicating with children. He shared row of his own books and asked her questions linked to the books. He also shared insight into planning a children’s story book that I never have seen before and found interesting as a parent.

Jesse did just what he said he would: He read us two of his stories and described the process from idea to finished product. He was engaging and enthusiastic and open to all of our questions. Also did a great job connecting with the little kid who was participating in the experience -- both personally and through his books. I enjoyed meeting Jesse and learning about the process of bringing children's stories to life on the page.
