Llama Llama and His Mama

llama llama home with mamaMother’s Day is coming up this Sunday, May 12th. There are so many wonderful picture books that depict a mother and child relationship.  Some of my favorite books about that special bond are the Llama Llama series by Anna Dewdney.  Little Llama Llama is just like any other kid.  Sometimes he gets scared at night, or throws a tantrum at the store, or he just doesn’t feel very well.   Lucky for him, he always has his Mama around to love him no matter what.  Toddlers and preschoolers love these books and they are perfect for reading at night while cuddling with your own little llamas.

Terrific Trees

It's a Whale of a Tale

You've probably heard by now that there will be a Finding Nemo sequel released in 2015 titled Finding Dory.  While I'm excited about a sequel to one of my favorite animated movies, I have to say 2015 is soooo long away!  What's a fish fan to do?  Read, of course!  Here are some of my favorite fishy books to help "tide" you over:

One Fish Two Fish One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss

The classic tale of animals with typical Seussical names!
