One of the RMECC 2011 highlights was attendance by Deborah Guarino, author of the children’s classic, Is Your Mama a Llama?
Most recently Deborah was honored by Denver’s Preschool Program in Colorado, which chose her book as its 2011 choice for the “One Book, One Denver” event, during which 1500 copies of Is Your Mama a Llama? were donated by corporate sponsors McDonald’s and Kaplan Early Learning Centers to preschool and Head Start programs throughout Denver. During this event Deborah did tandem readings of her book with Denver’s Mayor and Colorado’s state representative, who read the Spanish translation of the title while Deborah read the original version. During her public appearances at Denver’s famous Convention Hall and at its largest public library, Deborah was delighted to be accompanied by two live local llamas, both of whom seemed to enjoy all the activities as much as she did!
