NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 1

Llama Llama Gram and Grandpa 
by Anna Dewdney. 
September 2015.

From Amazon: "It’s an exciting day for Llama Llama; he’s going to visit Gram and Grandpa Llama and spend the night! His first night away from home….and from Mama. But he makes sure to pack everything he needs. And there are so many fun things to do with Gram and Grandpa. It’s not until he gets ready for bed that he realizes that he’s forgotten something important. Fuzzy Llama! Fortunately, Grandpa Llama has a wonderful solution and soon Llama Llama is having sweet dreams."

My thoughts: I love love love the Llama Llama series, and gasped out loud when I saw this on the new books shelf at the library (so many surprises when I don't work there any more!). Fun rhythmic rhymes, problems that any family of young children can relate to, a climax of emotion in the middle, and solutions that make you smile are always found in this series. My own 5- and 3-year-old recently stayed with grandparents overnight, and while it wasn't the first time for them, this would have been the perfect book to take along to calm any separation fears!

Recommended Age: 3-5 years
