Mr. Thrett came to our church, Bethel Baptist Church in Moody, Alabama to read and do a program for our children 1-6 grade. He came and shared his books, puppets and love for learning. Our children were so excited to hear him say the alaphabet backwards. He has a genuine love for kids and reading. He shows his books on powerpoint so everyone can see the pages!!! His interaction with the kids was contagious. We all had a wonderful time. The kids loved having a "real" author come and read and autograph their books. His book "Different, but the Same" was my faviorte. Please invite Mr. Threatt to come to your group, you'll be so glad you did!!!

Dear Mr. Threatt,
Thank you for sharing your writing experiences with the students at South Hampton. Your presentation inspired me to continue in my own personal writing. I emphasize daily to the students that they are authors and their words are powerful. I also emphasize that writing is a communication tool that they can use throughout their lives.

Your presentation was very exciting and interesting for the students and teachers at South Hampton. We are looking forward to you visiting our school and sharing your new book.

Cedric Threat's visit to our school was an exceptional experience for children and adults. He is able to hold the attention of the youngest child and oldest adult with his subject matter and use of visuals. Not to mention he is an excellent reader/storyteller. The children's exposure to him and his literature certainly helps to improve a child's self-concept. Our children love to be read to and now his books are some of the most requested. If you have not had Mr. Threat to your school, you are missing a wonderful opportunity for children and staff to actually meet an author and be entertained and educated at the same time. I highly recommend a visit to your school by Cedric,C-Smooth and Cheery (the puppets).

Dear Mr. Threatt,
Thank you for coming and sharing your wonderful books with our children. Even at this age they understand how to treat others and how they wish to be treated. Your book "Different, But the Same" will show children that we are of the human race and nothing else. "No Bully Zone" was easy for them to understand and, later, they could present examples of such behavior.
Your visit was most welcome.
C.L. Threatt did a great job with our students! We have had teachers and students from Kindergarten-fifth grade comment on how much they enjoyed his presentation. We especially liked how he emphasized the importance of reading - the more you read, the better writer you become! The younger students enjoyed the "BE CREATIVE" cheer (they came in singing it this morning!) and the older students enjoyed learning about how and why he wrote No Bully Zone. Teachers appreciated his emphasis on diversity through the book Different but the Same. He emphasized that you can do anything you set your mind to, no matter what problems you may have. Thanks, Mr. Threatt, and best of luck!

I absolutely loved the presentation! My 5th graders try to be "too cool" to participate, but Mr. Threatt had them singing and clapping to "Be Creative." I even heard it when we were going to the buses. He was energetic and all grade levels enjoyed his books and characters. A Journey Through the States with Harold and Nate is a fun way to tie social studies to creative writing. I can't wait to use it next year. Mr. Threatt's books are not only great for the students to read, but are also great tools for teachers in the classroom.
