I don’t know why I haven’t been introduced to the Llama Llama books before now, but somehow we’ve missed this series by author Anna Dewdney. Her latest book, Llama Llama Home with Mama, is such an adorable read; there really is no other way to put it. As I read this book, my heart just melted.
Llama Llama Home with Mama is the sweetest story, written in rhyming prose, about Llama Llama who wakes up one morning not feeling so good. It’s soon discovered that he is sick and must stay home with Mama Llama. Mama takes such good care of Llama Llama, even keeping him entertained when he’s so bored, he can’t figure out what to do next, tucking him in when he dozes off to sleep. Unfortunately, just as Llama Llama is starting to feel better, it would seem that Mama Llama is coming down with his sickness. (Isn’t that just the truth with us moms and dads?) What is Llama Llama to do?
Finally, Llama Llama figures out that taking care of Mama is just what he should do, and he gets busy comforting and serving Mama Llama. The best part of the book is the end, which I will not spoil for you.
AhhhÃ¢â‚¬Â¦CHOO! Llama Llama wakes up feeling under the weather. His head is feeling hot and his throat is sore.Ã‚Â No school for little Llama today. What is there to do all day? Being sick is such a bore. But when Mama begins to feel sick, Llama knows just what to do. He gets her tissues, fluffs her pillow, and finds a book to read together. Spending time with each other may be just the thing to help Llama and Mama feel better!
