Why We Love It
Settling down for the night can be challenging for many young children including Llama llama. After a story and kisses, Mama Llama leaves little llama to sleep. The separation proves too much for little llama whose imagination goes wild when mama does not immediately appear when called. Preschoolers will identify with little llama’s dilemma and find reassurance knowing that “ Mama Llama’s always near, even if she’s not right here.” The soothing rhythm and clever rhymes make this a preschool hit and a favorite to recite.
- Stuff one sock to make a llama head and body and cut another in half to make two llama ears. Have your preschooler draw eyes to finish their own little llama.
- Cut a three or four inch band of construction paper and tape it to fit your child’s head. Cut two llama ears and tape them to the band making your own little llama.
