    How can a school have Bess come to visit?

    • Hi Kathy,

      Sorry that it took so long to get back to you. All you have to do is ask! We are about 1/3rd of the way through our trip, but we are still locking down locations. Hopefully, we haven’t been through your state yet. You can send us a message on our website -

    I am a Kindergarten teacher in Baltimore Maryland. I teach in a small elementary school right off 695. I was wondering if your tour will take you near our school. Our population is 96% African American and low – middle socioeconomic bracket. We have many foster children and single parent families. Our children really need vocabulary and exposure to literature. I wondered if there is something we could do to encourage Bess to visit our school..
