I am a children's librarian and this year for our Boo @ the Library program I decided to do an unusual animal costume. I was hoping to get the kids to ask what I was so I could guide them to a book display on the topic.

I had a special nametag made for the day that says "Pink Fairy Armadillo." Thanks for looking!
