Karen Bell-Brege on the mic at a family night presentation.  School visit performances


You’ve come to the right place if you want a great presentation for a school visits, organization or conference that is unlike any other, then Karen & Darrin authors of children's books are for you.

As a husband and wife, author and illustrator, comedy team...when they present, their goal is to inspire, educate and entertain. All of their presentations are high-energy and interactive. Well, okay, yes, there was a time when a kindergartener thought that rolling around floor during their presentation was more fun. In fact, I know Karen and Darrin thought about joining him, but instead they made him laugh and he started to pay attention again. So, what they do when they present is really very different – no slideshow here.

Also, they think that if their audience is laughing, then they’re learning. Below you can see some of their awesome references. Please click here to see photos from some past presentations. And, it you are interested in having them present or would just like to chat, please email .

Family Fun Nights for EVERYONE!

If you want something different, something that involves students, teachers, staff and parents, alike, then you want our incredibly fun, high-energy, educational family night.

This engaging event will get families more connected with their student’s school, while promoting literacy through an engaging event. From such a positive experience, we believe you’ll find increased parent participation, stronger bonds with your students, and more focused learning in the classroom.

Our presentation is a mix of reading, writing and art, our books, and our school visits, while including comedy improv and voice impersonations to guarantee that everyone is laughing, learning, and having a wonderful time.

It’s also perfect for connecting your school with your community and local businesses. Whether you utilize it as a school fun-draiser, a young authors event, a reading awards night, or simply an enjoyable evening – this ‘screen free’ occasion is beneficial to all.

Ideas for funding a family night:

  • A grant
  • local business sponsors
  • funds for after school programs
  • Sell snacks or food
  • Have a raffle

You gave me a gift today. One of my students has such anxiety…but during your talk she laughed and smiled like never before! Thank you!

Several schools in the Blue Water area had the Brege’s present for their school visits. The principals of every school they visited called to say what a wonderful job the Brege’s did. I also hired the Brege’s to present at the Council’s Young Author Conference. Over 200 parents and young authors attended. The evaluations completed were superior, and everyone loved their books and comedy presentations.

Thank you for such a wonderful, energetic, audience inspiring performance at Angus Elementary. The students are still talking about your books and I can’t keep them on the library shelves.
