 A sustainability warrior has provided tots at Casey Childcare and Kindergarten with some food for thought.

Local author and environmental activist Sara Saunders visited the centre last week to read her book, ‘There once was an orangutan’.

Ms Saunders invited the children to ask questions and take note of the ways they can make a difference to the world.

Ollie, her plush orangutan, proved a treat with the pupils.

Centre manager Deborah-Anne Porter said Ms Saunder’s talk was well received among the pupils.

“The children loved this visit and were engaged throughout the visit, which provided a catalyst for many conversations with the children and staff long after Sara’s visit,” she said.

The read-along was one of many initiates put together by Casey Childcare.
