To celebrate her 100th birthday, Kathryn Landy wrote a book about her favorite pet dog. A retired educator, she began teaching in a one-room school during the Great Depression and then taught in a bomb shelter during World War II. She died in 2017.
Over her 45-year career, Mrs. Landy taught generations of children the joys of reading. She hoped Sparkles will continue to encourage children to read and preserve her legacy.
