Llama Llama Home with Mama: 09/01/12
Llama Llama Home with Mama by Anna Dewdney is the fifth of the Llama Llama books and the first one I've read with my daughter. I don't know if she's been reading them at school or just heard about them from her friends, but she insisted on adding this volume to her collection of books.
Llama Llama wakes up not feeling right. After a failed attempt at breakfast, Mama Llama sends him back to bed. He's staying home from school today. Mama knows just what he needs and later when she catches the same cold, it's his turn to take charge.
Told in an easy rhyming scheme and adorable illustrations, this is a book that lends itself to group reads and re-reads. My favorite page has Llama Llama in bed, sticking his tongue out. He looks so fed up with being sick and he's only just been put to bed.
I think we'll go back and read the other four books.
