A Tip of the Hat to Ellie McDoodle
A big old thank you to Ruth McNally Barshaw for being so sweet as to come in and speak to my children’s bookgroup about her books and drawing. Ms. Barshaw happened to be in town and offered to speak to a group of kids if I had some on hand. I most certainly did and she was fantastic. Plus, since her first Ellie McDoodle book is on our Summer Reading List, it made for a nice little tie-in. Boo-yah!
Thanks again, Ruth!
