The lovely Jan Brett appeared tonight at our local bookseller, Willow Books. She was sweet, engaging, and sincere. My little one and a friend sat in the front row riveted to every word. Jan's new picture book, The Three Little Dassies, was inspired by a trip to Namibia.
There were Dassies being drawn in my house tonight. My little artist was inspired, and so was I. Thank you, Jan, for being wonderful.
