Kid Konnection is a weekly meme hosted by Booking Mama. Every Saturday she features children’s books and encourages us to join along with her!
This week Princess Grace and I read Llama Llama Misses Mama by Anna Dewdney.
Time to get up, get dressed, and get going because it’s Llama Llama’s first day of school! Meet the new teachers, find new friends, but wait…why is Mama Llama leaving? It’s too much for Llama…Llama Llama misses Mama!
With excitement Llama Llama heads to his first day of school but when he gets there he feels shy and alone. It’s all a little overwhelming for little Llama Llama and he starts to cry. Soon the other children are taking Llama Llama under their wing-showing him how to play all kinds of fun kindergarten games. Llama Llama finds he doesn’t miss Mama quite so much anymore.
I loved the canvas like illustrations in this book. They were so full of color! A sweet book about overcoming fears and being open to new experiences, Llama Llama Misses Mama is sure to appeal to your youngster. Princess Grace could relate to this book because she just started preschool this year and this is one of her favorite books we have read.
Two sticky thumbs up!
