Llama Llama I Love You

BRATTLEBORO — On Saturday, Feb. 10, Brooks Memorial Library hosted a special Valentine's Day story time with a very special guest — Llama Llama in his (or her) red pajamas.

"The Llama Llama I Love You" event was in honor of the late Anna Dewdney, who created the Llama Llama series of children's books, which won numerous awards and are beloved worldwide. Dewdney lived in Putney and died of brain cancer two years ago at age 50.

Dewdney believed that parents can "jump start" empathy by reading to their kids in intimate settings, snuggled up tight with reading with animation and a great deal of funny voices. She thought that this was key to children developing an outside point of view, and hence empathy.
