Mama Llama

Llama Llama Red PajamaAnna Dewdney, author of the Llama Llama children's series, passed yesterday of brain cancer. She was 50. 

“When we read with a child, we are doing so much more than teaching him to read or instilling in her a love of language. We are doing something that I believe is just as powerful, and it is something that we are losing as a culture: by reading with a child, we are teaching that child to be human.”

Dewdney requested that in lieu of a funeral service, people read to a child instead.
