This is another great story in the Anna Dewdney’s series. I think this would be a good story to have the children do some role playing. For example, you have the children act out the kinds of things that Llama did as he became more impatient and frustrated while he waited for his mama. You can also ask the children what he could have done to help himself wait more patiently for his mama. Introduce the word emotions and what the word means, and have the children help describe some of the emotions. Another activity could be to have the children draw a picture of themselves displaying a emotion and the children can dictate about the emotion in the picture and the teacher can write it down.
In this infectious rhyming read-aloud, Baby Llama turns bedtime into an all-out llama drama! Tucked into bed by his mama, Baby Llama immediately starts worrying when she goes downstairs, and his soft whimpers turn to hollers when she doesn't come right back. But just in time, Mama returns to set things right. Children will relate to Baby Llama's need for comfort, as much as parents will appreciate Mama Llama's reassuring message.
