We had the opportunity to listen to John R. Erickson, creator of the Hank the Cowdog series, read from his latest book at the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature. (Yep, that’s in Abilene. Hard to believe, I know.) He’s a delightful reader and kept the audience quite entertained.
It was an exclusive event. Tickets required.
And the girls wore their cowgirl best.
And there were cookies.
But best of all, we got to meet Mr. Erickson himself!
