Excellent for all first time students who are nervous about their parent leaving them behind when they go to school. Llama Llama has his first day of school today, and everything is going great-that is until Mama Llama leaves him at school. Llama Llama doesn't want to do anything-eat, play, read-until he discovers that school is lots of fun, and a lot less scary when he knows that his mama will come back at the end of the day.

Anna Dewdney was a teacher, mother, and enthusiastic proponent of reading aloud to children. She continually honed her skills as an artist and writer and published her first Llama Llama book in 2005. Her passion for creating extended to home and garden and she lovingly restored an 18th century farmhouse in southern Vermont. She wrote, painted, gardened, and lived there with her partner, Reed, her two daughters, two wirehaired pointing griffons, and one bulldog. Anna passed away in 2016, but her spirit will live on in her books.
