It’s always great when an author/illustrator can keep a good thing going. Anna Dewdney has done just that; Llama Lama Home with Mama boasts the same bestselling rhythm and intonation as the rest of the Llama Llama books that are library and home staples to so many. Making sure not to glamorize the point that Llama Lama will be staying home from school, the ups and downs of a young one being home sick are covered. Halfway through the story, Mama Llama finds herself with a sniffly nose, too, and Llama Llama rises to the occasion: “Wait! Llama Llama knows what’s best./Mama Llama needs a rest!” The illustrations are a delight—with the stroke of a paintbrush and the blending of pastel colors with darker and bold shades, Dewdney captures relatable moments with adorable pink llama noses and facial expressions. This is a soothing yet uplifting book for younger readers and there caretakers.
