Llama Llama Holiday Drama
We ordered this book just in time for our household; I am already being asked on a daily basis when Christmas will get here! This is a great story that illustrates very well just how hard it is to wait, day after day and through building excitement, for a holiday that it feels like will never arrive. I always love a story that kids can identify with, one that helps them feel understood by giving them a character that seems to feel what they feel and react the way they naturally do, too. Little Llama is just that character in every book in this series. My favorite part of this particular story is when Little Llama melts down into a pitiful pile of exhaustion from holiday hoopla and anticipation. Mama Llama does not yell. She does not reprimand. She gets down on the floor and wraps her little one up in her arms. It is a tender moment that rejuvenates them both and reminds all of us that the real cause for celebration is that we have each other.
