Our school enjoyed a wonderful visit from the author Suzanne Younan, who shared with us her book, The Green Dragon. It was a timely visit as we were just completing our unit on Sharing the Planet, which linked very nicely to the message of her story. The children were enthralled with the tale of Willy the Dragon and his friends.
Suzanne shared with us the inspiration behind her book, which the children found so interesting. The children were able to really relate to the story as it is set in Hong Kong and it’s so great to be able to make a connection to a book in this way!
If you have an opportunity to invite Suzanne to your school, her presentation has a very poignant message about single use plastic and how we can all do our part to take action. Following her visit, the children had discussions about how they could be Super heroes for the planet which shows the impact the story has made with them!
When Suzanne Younan visited our school we knew that she had passion and and a book that we related to, what we didn't realise was just how relevant and inspiring her visit would be.

This is an important story, with endearing characters and a powerful message. As the book was set in Hong Kong, my students were instantly engaged as they could relate to the story. This enjoyable book can also be used as a teaching resource. In our class, we were able to link this with our learning to the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development and to our wider concerns about the environment.
Suzanne also joined us on our school beach clean up, sharing her book and giving a very informative talk about alternatives to single use plastic. Thank you Suzanne for helping raise awareness of these problems and for encouraging future generations to take action.
