Walter took Touch the Earth to his preschool. He’s 4 years old and has been receiving monthly books from Imagination Library for a year now.
“It’s like a snowball effect. First, we read “Touch the Earth”, then we went to the dam to learn more. Walter took some colouring pages of some animals that live around the dam that we got at the visitor centre. His teacher, Miss Lauren, read the book to his class, he then showed some photos of Warragamba dam and taught his friends everything he knows.
Great influences from the environmental learnings from Touch the Earth.” – Walter’s Mum.
