Friends:

Last Friday, I was at Lasalle Parish Library for my last summer reading program of the year. It was also my last summer reading program tour as I am no longer touring in the summer (more time for writing and spending time with my family). I love Andrea Book, the library director, and Donna Estis, the children’s librarian. They have been such great friends over the years. Thank you, ladies!!

My first show was in Jena, Louisiana. I began with my draw and tell story, The Emperor’s Dragon.

We then had fun with Medio Pollito, a story from Spain.

I had just as much fun in Olla, Louisiana at the Dixie Center. Though the crowd was small, the kids were great.

Kid Chef Eliana entertained the crowds in Jena and Olla. Too cute!

We loved eating and shopping at The Caboose, one of our favorite places in Louisiana. Lasalle Parish rocks!

Until next time…

Warmly, Dianne
