WOKQ Listener Saves the Day for Roy’s Son, Theo
Last week during The Morning Waking Crew, we found out Roy Sullivan's little boy, really enjoys the 'Llama, Llama' books, but was missing one very popular book in the series. Thanks to one of listeners, Theo is now a very happy little tyke!
Monday morning, 'Llama Llama Red Pajama' magically showed up at the radio station. We have no idea who the kind person is because there was no note attached. So, if you're reading this, Roy and his son, Theo would like to say, 'Thank You!' As you can see from the picture, the book has made Theo a very happy child. #PayItForward.
Llama trivia: The author of the 'Llama Llama' books, Anna Dewdney lives in Vermont.
