Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K-When the new neighbors stop by for a visit, Mama reminds Llama Llama and Nelly Gnu to share. The two youngsters get along well until Nelly plays with Llama Llama's most cherished toy, and a brief scuffle results in Fuzzy Llama's arm being torn off. Not to worry, the toy and friendship are soon mended, leaving everyone anticipating the next playdate. Dewdney's large paintings are bright, bold, and expressive. This picture book will be a pleasure to share with friends, old and gnu.-Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

In this brightly illustrated book from the Llama Llama series, new neighbors come to visit. Llama manages to share his blocks and play nicely with little Nelly Gnu, sometimes referred to as “the Gnu girl.” But when he sees her playing with his dolly Fuzzy, Llama grabs, Nelly tugs, and Fuzzy’s arm rips off. After apologies and a bit of mending, Llama and Nelly enjoy playing together again. Clearly depicting the characters’ emotions, Dewdney’s paintings bring the rhyming text to life on the page. The simplicity of the story and its timeless topic will make this a popular choice for reading aloud. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Carolyn Phelan

Format: Hardcover
Anna Dewdney, author and illustrator, delivers another fun-filled Llama Llama drama to the popular bestselling series. In this installment, Llama has a bit of a problem, he's not sure he wants to share Fuzzy with Nelly and to make matters worse, Fuzzy needs to be fixed. His Mama repairs Fuzzy, but warns Llama that he won't be playing with Fuzzy, until he decides to share. The adorable characters light up the colorful pages, and a friend of mine has a young child who loves the series. This addition is easy-to-read, fun rhyme, and an important lesson is learned about sharing, essential for this age group. Highly Recommended for teachers, parents with young children, and child-care providers. A great gift to family and friends for the holidays!

I am a retired early childhood teacher and principal. When I took my 2 year old grandaughter to the library one rainy Saturday, she became spellbound with the Llama, Llama series. The board books were a little too simple for her but the others had her captivated, so much so that we had to renew the books 5 times until no more renewals were allowed and n they had to be returned. The next time she came to visit nana, she asked where the Llama, Llama books were so I bought the whole series. I think the charm of the series is taking Llama, Llama and acknowledging his negative feelings which all of us have and then allowing him to see how shopping when you want to play can be fun, sharing can enhance your play and bring you new friends etc. I think the series gives you a really good way to discuss various issues with your child, grandchild, student, etc. without hitting the subject head on.

When mom tells Llama Llama to share his toys with Nelly Gnu a tug of war ensues and one of the toys loses a limb! The cute and colorful illustrations combined with the rhyming dialogue help children learn a lesson about sharing. Cute book that gently teaches a lesson!

Another winner in the Llama Llama series. This one steps the lessons taught up a notch. I use this series with first and second graders that I read to each week. They love Llama and can relate to his experiences and always have a number of stories to share about their similar adventures. I would recommend the entire series to anyone who loves to read to kids!

Anna Dewdney is a genius. Loved "Time to share". Mama Llama presents a great solution for a very human problem. Dewdney hits it out of the park everytime!

Just as the other llama books, this one DOES NOT disappoint. Learning the valuable lesson of sharing can be tricky, and this book helps make it seem more plausible!! We have all of the books in the llama collection, and love all of them, but this one is at the top of our list!

My 3 year old son and I really love the rhymes and the drawings are adorable!
Also, it's very educational but fun. I recommend this for 2 yr old and up to 5-6 yr old kids.

This is the first of the Llama Llama series I have bought & I am very pleased with it. I like that the story is told in rhyme, it's easy for little kids to get it. I bought this book for my grandson based on the high review ratings & I was not disappointed.
