The rhyme scheme in these books is always fun. ( )

This book is very good to talk about feelings. The younger students will like this book because they can relate to Llama's feelings. ( )

Teaches children that it is ok to be nervous about going to school but you make new friends when you go to school and that your parents will be there when you are done with school.

This is about baby llama going to school for the first time and he misses his mamma and doesn’t want to participate in activities. A classmate reminds him that she will come back for him, and then he has fun and makes new friends.

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.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670061980, Hardcover)

Strange new teacher.
Strange new toys.
Lots of kids and lots of noise!

What would Llama like to do?
Llama Llama feels so new . . .

It’s Llama Llama’s first day of preschool! And Llama Llama’s mama makes sure he’s ready. They meet the teachers. See the other children. Look at all the books and games. But then it’s time for Mama to leave. And suddenly Llama Llama isn’t so excited anymore. Will Mama Llama come back?

Of course she will. But before she does, the other children show Llama Llama how much fun school can be!
