Franklin has had the fortunate experience of visiting day care centers, elementary schools, Jr. high schools and high schools for Meet the Author Visits.
Day care Centers – The young children thoroughly enjoy listening to Franklin read his books, and they ask many questions about the characters in the books. The most popular question is, "Why is Franklin the Helper bald?" The children are also intrigued by Billy The No Bullying Bear, the Franklin the Helper life-sized cut-out and are quick to line up to take pictures with Franklin, the life-sized cut-out and Billy!
Elementary schools – The students are always excited to have Franklin engage with them through an author visit at their school! They find it cool that an author is visit and read his books. Franklin spends time talking to the students about bullying and often gives goodie bags and special prizes to the students.
High schools – When Franklin does author visits at high schools as a guest speaker, his intention is to motivate the students. He speaks to the students about bullying, charting their path after graduation, attending college and being a young entrepreneur. High school students are attentive when Franklin is speaking. Many students have commented that he is relatable because he is close to their age and understands the younger generation. This makes him the perfect guest speaker.
Junior high schools – Franklin has author visit days scheduled through the end of 2022 at junior high schools. These engagements will focus mainly on speaking to the students about the topics of bullying, empathy and social awareness.
