Dear Mary Brooke Casad,
I enjoyed you coming for Armadillo Day. I learned about some facts about armadillos, like they don’t like the sunlight in their eyes. Le m tell you what we did..
- We made armadillo hats
- We ate things like Road Kill, which is really macaroni with some cheese Ants on a Log, which is really Celery sticks with peanut butter
- Maggots, which is really white rice
- My favorite one was Dirt Cups, chocolate fudge with oreo crust with 2 gummi worms
- We did armadillo races, which is fake plastic drawing of an armadillo on a stand and we race with them. We used dice to say what number gets to move.
- Mo most favorite thing was you, telling us about Bluebonnet’s adventures and that Bluebonnet puppet was cute.
Thank you for coming

Dear Ms Casad,
I am so glad you could come to our school. Bluebonnet was so cute in person. I did not even know about her until you came. You taught us so much. This is what I learned.
- armadillos jump 3-5 fee
- armadillos can play dea
- armadillos take a deep breath and inflate its stomach twice the size and walks across the bottom and it takes 2 hours for its stomach to get back to normal size.
I wish I could be with you when the armadillo wen rolling down the stairs. It must have been awesome. I saw a armadillo before I was 4 or 5. I forgot where I was. My Mom and dad wanted me to go up so they could take a picture but I did not want to go up to it.
My favorite Bluebonnet book must be the book with Spike. I also like when she was at the fair and the football players chased here she must have had a fright.

Dear Ms. Casad,
Remember Armadillo Day? Well I don’t know about you, but Armadillo day was one of my coolest school days ever.
I loved it when you came and talked about your books. I really got interested in those books and I’ll read them after I finish The Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo. In case you didn’t know, (witch you don’t)I’m the kid that was sitting up front with the video camera.
Well I’m pretty sure thet you loved Armadillo day too!
Your #1 fan,

Dear Ms. Mar Brooke Casad,
Thank you so much for coming to our school. It was very nice to meet you and hear your wonderful stories. Your books are interesting and funny. I like how Bluebonnet has different adventures in different ways in all your books. When Bluebonnet goes to the fair, camp, or even the Texas State Capital book was interesting like when Bluebonnet met Mac the Mockingbird, or when the school children convinced the Texas House and the Senate to make the Longhorn the official Large State Mammal and the armadillo the Small State Mammal. That was a fun thing to read and it was real interesting to. Well, I wanted to say that I love your books and I hope to be as good as an author as you when I grow up.
p.s. I liked Bluebonnet, your puppet to, it really heps bring your books to life.

Dear Ms. Mary Casad,
I am new at our school and I really didn’t know much about the Bluebonnet books. So when I read one I loved it. Then my teacher read another one to the class I loved that one too. After that I read one from my science teacher’s class and you guessed I loved that one too! Then I heard about Armadillo day, and that you were coming. I was so excited and I wanted to get my work done as soon as possible. Then Armadillo day finally came, we drew an armadillo, we plaed games, we had cookies that were shaped like armadillos, and we also had an awesome lunch! But the best of all was listening to you and hear you talk all about your stories. The part that I didn’t believe is that you went to all those places. I thought that when you saw an armadillo roll off the stairs was funny I think I would of laughed too. I love all your books and I hope to be like you someday and I think that it would be cool to go to all the places I write about. I have a couple of questions: What will your next series be about if you do another series? Would it be cool to do it about yourself and the placed you have gone? And are you going to write more Bluebonnet books?

Dear Ms Casad,
Thank you for coming to our school on Armadillo Day. I loved hearing your stories about Bluebonnet. It was salso so neat to get your autograph in my books, Bluebonnet at the State Fair and Bluebonnet at the State Capitol. I have enjoyed reading these two books.
I love all of the places that Bluebonnet goes, ald all of the animals she meets along the way. I hope that you write aother book about Bluebonnet very soon.
I went to the State Fair of Texas yesterday, and I thought about Bluebonnet. I had a great time there. I saw all sorts of animals, including some dancing dogs. I did not, however, see an armadillo, even though I wanted to!
Thank you again for coming to visit our school last month.

Thank you for coming to our school on Armadillo day. I really enjoyed it when you told us about some of Bluebonnet’s adventures. It taught me so many things I didn’t even know about! The adventures really inspired me! Now I want to go to some of those places. I hope you come back next year and share some of your books to the newer 4th graders. If you were able, I hope you loved the food that the parents made, it was delicious! If you didn’t I’m very sorry, though if your lucky next year you can try it! Thank you for making the Bluebonnet series.
Some parts are funny, some parts are sad, others help me learn more. I love how you go to the area, actually write the things you learned or experienced and shared that to many children. Even my older sister loves your books! Once again, thank you for everything.
