My name is Alexandria Marie Dudley, but everyone calls me Allie. Growing up, I had a speech disability that made learning to read a struggle for me. As I grew older and became better at reading I realized literacy is a powerful and priceless ability. Over the past 10 years, working with children has become my passion and helping children discover their power of literacy truly warms my heart.
This is a fun book about the new normal of 'wearing a mask'. I am a Speech Language Pathologist working with the pediatric population. After returning to work during the COVID-19 2020 pandemic, we began seeing patients with masks on. My mask has been touched and pulled too many times to count. This book is a silly way to talk about masks, what lies beneath them, and why we never touch other's.
