What happens when Baby Llama gets sick? Mama takes care of him, of course! But what about when Mama Llama gets sick, too? Things get different, and Llama Llama must take care of his Mama! ( )

This book is a great way to teach children to have patience with their mother. Teaches them about feelings they may have and how to deal with them. Nice book to have children participate with. ( )

This book is a great story of how Llama Llama gets sick and stays at home with his mama. After Llama Llama gets well his mother gets sick and he has to take care of her just like she took care of him. ( )

32 months - Perfect timing to read about a sick kid and mom at the height of cold and flu season. Nice to see the child appreciate all mama does and return the love by trying to make her feel comfortable too. The rhyming in this one is as always spot on. ( )

Llama llama home with mama by Anna Dewdney

This picture book is about a young llama boy who is home sick with a cold. While he is sick, his mama nurses him back to health. After the young llama begins to feel better, his mama becomes sick. While stuck at home again, he quickly becomes bored. Next, he realizes what he should do. He then starts to take care of his mama by bringing her items such as tissues, a cup of water, and a comfy pillow. The story ends with the young llama boy reading his mama a story.

Personal Reaction:
I love this book, mostly because the young llama boy reminds me of my son when he was a young boy--caring and affectionate. I love the moral of the story and the bright colors used in the illustrations.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. In the classroom, I could invite the children to tell the class about a time when they were sick and who took care of them.
2. After the first Excercise, I could ask the children to think of ways they could help someone else when they are sick.

Book description
I really like this book because of the great illustrations and rhyming that the author uses. All of her books are very appropriate for prekindergarten as she touches on social emotional development and learning. Additionally, these books relate to young children’s lives and open the door for meaningful discussion that can promote higher order thinking skills and strategies. The rhyming is also a good tool and strategy for fostering the language development as will pre-reading and writing skills in young children.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0670012327, Hardcover)

Amazon Best Books of the Month, August 2011 : Llama Llama is feeling crummy, sneezing, achy, head all stuffy. No school today for Llama, he’s sick at home in his red pajamas. As the day wears on and Llama starts feeling better, boredom sets in--along with Mama Llama’s coughs and sneezes. Llama Llama knows just what to do, bringing Mama tissues, a fluffy pillow, and books to read. Anna Dewdney’s latest is a welcome addition to her bestselling Llama Llama picture book repertoire, perfectly capturing the challenges of a little one home sick from school and the big dose of love that makes the best medicine. --Seira Wilson

Llama Llama's mother takes good care of him when he has to stay home from school because he is sick, but when Mama Llama begins to feel sick, too, Llama Llama knows how to take care of her.
