Today, I arrived in style at the Fort Dodge Public Library by riding in a bulldozer.

My story time was going on at the same time as swimming lessons. Guess which event most of the kids in town attended!

And, speaking of swimming lessons, I wish lifeguards would spend more time teaching kids about the dangers of diving off cliffs into unknown waters. I’d hate for any kid to dive into a pond and encounter a giant squid.

During my afternoon, I ditched the bulldozer and hopped aboard a tractor to drive to the Auburn Public Library!

I’m not completely sure, but I think everyone enjoyed my story!

Even the cows and horses were all smiles after my visit.
