This was a cute little book that would be good to used to show that animals miss their mamas just like we do. Children would really like this one because they can relate to it. ( )

This book is about a baby lama who goes to school for the first time. She is scared and shy and wants her momma. When she starts to cry everyone comforts her. She cheers up and plays with everyone. At the end her mom comes and picks her up. A theme of thi, our friends can cheer us up if we let them. ( )

A great book about a Llama on his first day of school, with all the emotions. ( )

Llama Llama is getting ready for the first day of preschool and he does not want Mama to leave him. He does not want to join in when the teacher asks him to do many of the different activities. Eventually a peer is able to reassure him that he will be okay and he starts to join in with the classmates. This was a great book to use at the beginning of the school year with my preschoolers. It was easy to use this story to engage the students in conversations about their emotions with starting school. This is also a great book to use to discuss friendships.

Book description
Again, I think this book is another great read for prekindergarten children. This story is very relatable and real for the preschool child, and the teacher can bring unlimited learning from Anna Dewdney’s Llama series. For example, the children can make predictions about what they think is going to happen in the story between the characters, and extend the predictions by asking how the characters will find resolutions. This book also provides an opportunity to introduce new vocabulary. The teacher can put the words up, and find ways to use the words throughout the school day, and encourage the children to use the words as well.
