Evelyn Wood's nature talks to schools and library audiences are based on his Too Woo books using cartoons and drawings from them to illustrate the talk. Like his books, Evelyn's talks are praised for their informative content, clarity and fun.
The talks are suitable for children in the age groups seven to eleven. Evelyn encourages questions and is keen to inspire children to take an interest in the natural world.
Evelyn is thrilled to have been invited to talk to children of Hampstead Hill School at Keats Library Hampstead. The invitation follows his successful 2017 talk to the same school.
Teddington's Stanley school assistant head teacher Sue Leney commented: "Evelyn Wood's illustrated talk, to year two, about bees was based on his book, 'The busy world of bees'. Evelyn presented information clearly and established a good rapport with his audience. The talk was both informative and fun, telling the bees' complicated story in an easy to understand way. The children were enthusiastic and positive about the visit and the new facts they'd learned. Teachers who attended the talk enjoyed it and learned some new facts too. The talk was followed by a lively question and answer session.
Evelyn particularly enjoys this interaction with children and hopes to inspire a lifelong interest in the natural world with his books and talks. Based on our experience, I'm happy to recommend him as a speaker."
