From Story Time: The Letter "L"


By Anna Dewdney
Viking, 2007.  Picture Book.

Llama Llama is having fun playing when Mama decides it's time to go shopping.  But he doesn't want to go shopping.  After being taken away from his playtime, being woken up from his nap in the car, and having to shop and shop and shop, Llama Llama gets MAD at Mama!  But Mama knows just how to settle little Llama down, and the day ends with teamwork, smiles, and a little bit of ice cream.  Written in Dewdney's classic rhyming Llama Llama style, this story is a great reminder that sometimes it's hard being a toddler in a grownup world!

After Dad reads a bedtime story, Little Bear doesn't want to go to sleep.  He tells his dad all of the things that he loves his dad more than:  "more than all the snowflakes of winter...more than all the grains of sand on the shore...more than all the stars in the sky."  For each new comparison, Dad responds "I love you even more."  A sweet story with dreamy illustrations that celebrates the love between parent and child.
