This is part of the Llama Llama collection by Anna Dewdney.
It is a fun tale of the little Llama who has to go shopping with mama at the Shop O Rama.
He is bored, people are too close and smelly.
No little Llama likes to be shopping when he can be home playing. The point comes where little Llama loses his cool and has a fit in the grocery store.
Mama steps in and gently corrects while reassuring little guy she still loves him.
It ends with parent and child hand in hand enjoying a treat after shopping.
I enjoyed reading this book to my daughter for the two reasons.
I love the sing song rhyme of the book.
I also, have been working on the importance of obeying Mom in the grocery store.
This book allows you and your child to have a great discussion of what is acceptable behavior while in the store.
If you like this one, also check out Llama Llama Red Pajamas for more reading fun.
