PortPrep is thrilled to inspire students with the experience of an award winning illustrator and author, H Werner Zimmermann as our anatomy instructor. Werner Zimmermann is the illustrator of Canada's favourite illustrated story books like Porcupine in a Pine Tree and Dashing Through the Snow by Helaine Becker and Guelph's beloved author Jean Little's Pippin the Christmas Pig. Zimmermann is famous for his book Snow Day
We are proud to announce that Werner was a finalist for the Governor General's Award for Children's Illustrated Literature in 2018! Catch a glimpse into the magic the book has to offer:
"Spend a lazy summer day exploring a tiny, perfect slice of nature! Count goldfish as they swim about the tranquil pond. Watch as sunlight moves across the water. Spot a water lily blossoming, frogs and water striders hopping through, a heron flying by. With a simple text and rich, lifelike paintings, Werner Zimmermann has created a peaceful meditation on nature and a unique and beautiful world for readers of all ages to enjoy.
Continue the learning journey at the end of the book, where you'll find more information on all the animals that call the pond home. (From Scholastic Canada)
At the Pond is on the 2018 Governor General's Literary Award shortlist for young people's literature — illustrated books."
