Introducing Raggedy Ann

Introducing Raggedy Ann

In the first of his first eight Raggedy Ann Stories Johnny Gruelle introduced the now famous little lady with the heart tattoo that says I love you. Raggedy Ann has been a comfort to little girls the world wide for over one hundred years. This first written story about her was published in 1918.

Today, I introduce those who have not already met her to Raggedy Ann. This is the first of the over two hundred books that I recorded that were long enough that I decided to divided them into several readings. Here is a picture of my dear departed daughter Emily who would have turned forty last month as a girl with her Raggedy Ann doll.

Like Johnny Gruelle I hope to someday be known as a writer who gave his special gift to the world. He gave us Raggedy Ann and later Raggedy Andy stories. I have shared and continue to share stories and pictures of my precious little girl who tattooed a big permanent I Love You on my heart. I so enjoyed her brief stay with us. And I hope you enjoy these adventures with Raggedy Ann.

Your friend and fellow traveler,
