In the second last week of term we received another special package for our LRC in the mail. It was a copy of “This is the Mud” by Katherine Apel. Kathryn heard about our flood damage and wanted to send us one of her books for our library.
We had SO much fun sharing this story! Kathryn is also a fabulous poet and we really enjoyed her rhyming way with words. We had a great time predicting how to get the cow and then all of the farm machines out of the mud. Quite a few people suggested a crane and even a helicopter to do the job!
We know that Kathryn lives on a farm with her family and we were wondering if this story is actually based on a true story. We also wondered if the lady farm worker who came to the rescue might have been Kathryn herself!
Thank you for your thoughtfulness in sending us such a fun story for our library Kathryn…we are lucky to have such a talented author and poet as one of our “LRC Friends”.
