Llama Llama has new neighbors! Nelly Gnu and her mama stop by for a play date, but Llama's not so sure it's time to share all his toys. Maybe just his blocks? It could be fun to make a castle with Nelly . . . But wait--Nelly has Llama's little Fuzzy Llama! The fun turns to tears when Fuzzy Llama is ripped in two, "all because of Nelly Gnu!" Mama comes to the rescue and fixes Fuzzy, but she makes it clear: "I'll put Fuzzy on the stairs, until you're sure that you can share." Fun to read aloud and helpful to children and parents alike, Llama Llama Time to Share is for any child who needs a little encouragement in sharing.
“Llama has a sharing drama! Build a tower. Make a moat. Nelly’s dolly sails a boat. What can Llama Llama add? Maybe sharing’s not so bad.”
Llama Llama Time to Share is such a wonderful story from the colorfully illustrated pages to the lessons about sharing it teaches. Llama Llama is busy playing with his toy trains when the doorbell rings..and it’s his new neighbors the Gnu’s come to play. Dewdney shares the events that unfold as toys are brought out and towers are built. Things don’t go smoothly, a lesson is learned and the value of sharing is beautifully told. Llama Llama will make you smile and makes a delightful story for little ones to young children to read on their own.
