Landybooks in Schools

Veronica Lamond (4)A croppedVeronica is available for reading  her Landybooks and speaking about how she goes about writing, illustrating & publishing her books, to schools in Devon and Cornwall.

After Veronica has visited, children are often inspired to write their adventure stories for Landy and Fender… or even stories of  other Land Rovers in different countries.

Veronica can be booked for individual morning sessions and block bookings.
For further details and rates, please message Veronica on the home page.

Elisabeth Carney-Haworth
Head Teacher of Torpoint Infant School comments:

“Our Year 1 classes began to think about Land Rovers following the arrival of the first Landy book as a “Wow” moment.

The four classes then studied Land Rovers around the world and the various roles that they undertake: medical, engineering, rescue, police, fire fighters, aid workers, environmental…
As we are a naval town, they also looked at how Land Rovers are used in the Armed Forces.

The children loved the book about the farm and we brought in an old Land Rover for the children to sit in and see.
They wrote three songs about Land Rovers and took an assembly for their parents.  

 All in all the children studied the Land Rovers for over half a term and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The theme particularly excited the boys who were keen to read and write about Land Rovers.

These are great books that excite all our children and led to some
fantastic learning!”
