Teacher’s Comments

presenting“Jan Latta recently opened our Book Week with a series of highly engaging presentations to our students from aged 5 to 17 yrs. Our older students were captivated by Jan’s description of her life-changing experience with the mountain gorillas and her videos of endangered animals. We would be happy to welcome Jan back to our school in the future and would highly recommend her visit to other schools.” Fiona Collins, Teacher Librarian, WISS Shanghai.

She transported us to the bush of Africa, and in her soft voice told us one story after another, accompanied by wonderful photos and videos. Our students were very inspired by her talk and I would happily host Jan again on a next occasion.” Marion van Engelen, Director of Libraries, Dulwich College Shanghai.

Your presentaion of your life experience will stay in the minds of the children and perhaps inspire them to follow their passions in life. Your books give children the opportunities to read and value their world environment and our endangered animals.” Aniko Kora, Blue Mountains City Library.
