Alastair Heim writes children’s picture books. He lives in Kansas City with his awesomely awesome family who inspire him every day. Laughter is his favorite sound, purple is his favorite color, and other-people-cooking-for-me is his favorite food. Alastair is a huge fan of music and has been known to play the guitar with impeccable mediocrity. After experiencing the joy, laughter, and wondrous awe picture books brought his kids (and still continue to), he thought that there would be nothing cooler than to see that same reaction come from one of Daddy’s stories. He hopes his books put a smile on other kids’ faces, too.
Alastair has presented to thousands of Pre-K through 5th grade students over the years and loves to visit schools! He offers fun, interactive and inspiring full and half-day story time sessions for kids. “My students loved when Alastair Heim visited our school. Alastair shared his love of writing and creating books through a wonderful presentation. He connected with students through his stories and inspired many students to want to be an author too! It was so awesome to hear how he came up with his ideas for his books and the process it takes to be an author. His reading of “Hello Door,” in a British accent was a hit. Thank you, Alastair!” — Amy Peters (Kindergarten Teacher)
