Llama Llama Holiday Drama by Anna Dewdney

Christmas is coming, Llama Llama is sure, but when? The shopping, the making, the baking, the wrapping--it's almost too much for one little llama llama to bear. Until, that is, Mama Llama reminds young Llama Llama what Christmas is really about.

What I thought: A charming book. It's the first Llama Llama book that I've read and I really liked it. The illustrations are first rate--bright and colorful. Young readers/listeners will empathize with Llama Llama's lack of patience. I love how Dewdney reinforces what Christmas is about. This will pair well with Fancy Nancy: Splendiferous Christmas.

Story Time Theme: Christmas

(Viking, 2010)
