This book is about a llama that is afraid of going to school. He doesn't want to go to school because he will miss his mom. ( )

This would be good for a kindergarten class at the beginning of the year because its about being separated from mom. You could use it as a lesson to teach that even though you are away from mom and miss her that it is ok and that she will eventually be back at the end of the school day ( )

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.
