Llama llama home with Mama is a part of the Llama Llama series written and illustrated by Anna Dewdney. This series is ideal for preschool children and beginner readers.

In this book, Llama wakes up sick and has to stay at home with Mama. With great illustrations and simple and rhyming text, the book describes what having a cold entails. It also shows empathy and ways Llama Llama can help his Mama when she gets sick ( )

Llama, Llama Home with Mama is a childrens picture book that takes you through a Llama's day of having a cold. When the mama Llama gets sick herself, little Llama then takes care of her.

Personal Reaction:
This book is affectionate and endearing. The little Llama is taken care of by his mama and coddled until he feels better, showing children affection and love. This is another one of our nightly readers.

Extension Ideas: I would have a lesson on germ exchange and keeping healthy. I would peel a potato and have the entire class pass it around and in the end, the once white potato is now dirty and browning due to germs and dirt.
I would ask for the health department to send a rep to my class to give information about how we could keep germs at bay and keep from getting 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
