The Suffern Free Library

A few days ago I took a Short Line bus to Suffern, NY. There is a wonderful library there, the Suffern Free Library.

There, I spent a very nice afternoon reading Hey, Rabbit! and Amandina to a group of young library-goers and their parents.

All the kids were very well-behaved, especially this one, who sat completely still for the whole reading.

Thank you so much to Barb Farrell and the other librarians who organized this extremely pleasant evening.

Two more drawings

I just received two more drawings from visitors of my website.

This first one is by Frankie from Montebello, NY.

And this by Erica, who lives in New York City.

Thank you!
