Summer lectures are the best, especially when they are interactive.
A recent presentation on llamas in the Lee Library in Western Massachusetts included a visit from, well, Jack the llama, himself!
She always brings a llama with her.
The animals travel, one at a time, in the back of a van.
Here's a photo of a photo, showing the mode of transportation:
Jack appeared to be a gentle animal who chewed his cud, looked out at the audience, let the kids pet his neck, and plunked down on the carpeted floor when he got tired.
Mrs. Elias told all about llamas----how they come from South American and dislike hot weather; how they are sociable animals in their herds and how their fiber, or fur, is used to make sweaters, vests and all kinds of other objects.
The terrific program had the rapt attention of the entire audience, both kids and adults.
The presenter and her friend, Jack, did a great job!
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A LLAMA UP CLOSE?
