I'm raising kids, llamas, and alpacas in the Pacific Northwest. What a life and loving every minute! I am an artist, an actress, a singer, a director, a volunteer with 4-H and have worked at the same company for 30 years. I recently retired and I am ready to start hanging out with my llama friends and writing several more children's books. I hope everyone enjoys them.

My Public Books

  • This book is a fun and colorful way for your child to learn the fundamentals of counting to ten. Each page is filled with colorful illustrations of cute little llamas in silly yoga poses playing together and thinking positive happy thoughts. You can engage with your child by looking for items on the page relating to the corresponding number like finding three bees, six trees, eight balls or 10 kites. You can use the illustrations for basic addition and subtraction. The possibilities are endless!
    In 2019 I had a stroke which effected my ability to walk, talk, write and draw. I had to go to therapy for over a year. I was determined to get better so I could finish my books as I was in the middle of my illustrations when the stroke happened. I used my time while recovering to practice regaining my eye hand coordination by writing and drawing daily. It was hard and tiring at first, but I did not give up. The little llamas in this book are the results of my accomplishments. Today in 2021, I am about 90 percent recovered, with a few minor side effects, but even that has not stopped me from reaching my goals. I have pushed past my disabilities and maintain a can-do attitude. I hope you enjoy the book!
  • About the Author:
    Tani (Taw-nee) Adams
    I have lived in the Pacific Northwest most of my life. I was a volunteer Club leader for Washington State University Youth Programs called “4-H” for many years. This is where I found my compassion and admiration for llamas and the amazing community of people who raise these wonderful animals. My daughters were involved in 4-H for several years and had participated in many 4-H projects over the years, which included community service, creative arts, performing arts, photography, sand sculpting, leadership, textiles, stop motion animation, animal science, public speaking, environmental stewardship, alpacas, and llamas. My daughters trained many alpacas and llamas on our little farm. They participated in llama shows and would demonstrate how well their llamas and alpacas performed at 4-H events. Many of our events were in the spring and summer seasons. Most of that time was spent in the barns and in the show rings. I spent many of my vacation hours camped out at the fairgrounds during the summer. I hope to go venture tropical islands someday and maybe even try surfing or snorkeling with colorful tropical fish, just like Llama-Llama Tutu and Mr. Red!
