on my desk monday

On my desk is a completely awesome dragon scarf hand knit by the equally awesome author/illustrator Mary Newall Depalma:

It is a gift for Rain Dragon (though I am tempted to "borrow" it once the weather gets cold) and she adores it. She runs back and forth wearing it, pretending she is a flying dragon:

If you aren't familiar with Mary's work, you should  be! She is the  incredible author illustrator of  many beautiful books like Two Little Birds:

A Grand Old Tree:

Rain Dragon likes to ad lib with this book and includes celebrities like Bill Cosby, Maisy and Spot in the tree 

And Rain Dragon's favorite,  The Strange Egg:

and it gets her to eat a lot of oranges, too
Thanks so much, Mary!!!!
