“No more of this llama drama!”
Anna Dewdney, Llama Llama Mad at Mama

“When we read with a child, we are doing so much more than teaching him to read or instilling in her a love of language. We are doing something that I believe is just as powerful, and it is something that we are losing as a culture: by reading with a child, we are teaching that child to be human. When we open a book, and share our voice and imagination with a child, that child learns to see the world through someone else’s eyes.”
Anna Dewdney

“Llama llama red pajama
hollers loudly
for his mama”
Anna Dewdney, Llama Llama Red Pajama
