Will Llama Llama Share?


When Llama Llama meets his new neighbor, Nelly Gnu, he's excited, and a bit nervous. His mom reminds him to share before he shows her his toys, but Nelly starts to play her own games. Llama watches from the sidelines, worried about his things. Nelly starts to build a castle, and that seems fun, so he joins in. Things are going smoothly until Fuzzy Llama winds up in Nelly Gnu's hands. What will happen to Fuzzy Llama? Can Nelly Gnu and Llama Llama be friends? Will Llama Llama learn how to share? You will have to read this delightful children's picture book to find out!

Llama Llama: Time to Share by Anna Dewdney is a wonderful children's picture book! Margo was right there with Llama when Nelly took Fuzzy Llama to play a game, and I could feel her grasping tightly onto her stuffed pony, Mr. Fazzy. The illustrations in this book are brilliant, and we felt like we were right there in the scenes. The Llama Llama books are written in rhyme and will enchant children with the fun word play. Margo and I had a blast reading together, and we're definitely going to pick up another Llama Llama story soon!

Has anyone else read Llama Llama: Time to Share or any of the other Llama Llama books? We'd love to hear your thoughts!

Stop by this Friday for an exclusive interview with author/ illustrator Anna Dewdney to find out more about the story behind the story. :)

Happy reading!

  2. Can't wait for the interview. I've seen a lot of animals depicted in picture books, but I can't recall ever seeing one about a llama.

  4. You know, the part I'm looking forward to most (well, equal with other parts) of having this baby, is an excuse to get back to picture books. There are so many amazing/adorable ones, and as long as I have a kid to read them to, I'll spend hours doing just that.

  5. What a great idea to have a llama who has a stuffed llama as a toy! After all, people have baby-dolls. Sharing is an important message. Good luck to Anna! :)

  7. My daughter started with Llama Llama when she was a year old and we still read them to this day. We just read Llama Llama and the Bully Goat. I love the messages and the rhymes. These are fantastic books for younger readers.
