School visits that inspire!
A fun and lively presentation that teaches children about wildlife and gets them excited about books and art.
What schools are saying:
“Imogen’s visit was a delightful and educational experience for us all. The children sat spellbound as she read her story to them and they loved spotting the animals on the beautiful music video. As the children identified the different animals, they suddenly understood that they were watching wild animals in Africa, the REAL Africa! This was an exciting moment. After Imogen left, the children asked me to read the story again and sat just as attentively as they had the first time. Imogen delivers an important message in a meaningful and enjoyable way and I highly recommend having her visit your school or centre.”
Castlecrag Montessorir School, Sydney – Australia
“It’s amazing how they were able to follow your instructions even at 5 years old, as to how to draw expressions and what was interesting was to see their different interpretations of what you drew. It was very inspiring.”

“The children loved your visit. It was wonderful to see them sit so still as you read your book to them and to see their excitement as you played the video of the real life animals.”
Killarney School, Sydney – Australia
“Yesterday the children were very fortunate to have a visit from a children’s author and illustrator – Imogen Taylor. Imogen talked to the children about how she had the original ideas for her stories and the time it has taken for her book to be published. Imogen also read her story ‘The POWEs and The Disappearing Tusks’ to the children. The children were captivated by the story.”

Waverley Public School, Sydney – Australia
“Thanks again for the reading and workshop you did with us on Thursday. Following the exercises you did on illustrating, the children produced these lovely African illustration bubbles, followed by small stories about a chosen animal. They were really lovely – who knows maybe one day they will be authors too! Kind regards and good luck in the future.”
