In memory of Tasha Tudor, famed author and illustrator, August 28, 2008 has been declared Tasha Tudor Day. She has been a beloved fixture on our bookshelves since we started homeschooling. We have many of her books but Corgiville Fair and A Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson (illustrated by Tasha) are two of our favorites. Her entire life enbodied a simpler, gentler way. Her stories, painted so delightfully, wove magical tales of corgis and children and family and love. So, please, won’t you join us with a cup of tea, a stroll in the garden or a reading of one of her many books as we remember a delightful woman and her life.
