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.

About Anna Dewdney

Anna says, “I live in a big old house in Vermont with three scruffy dogs, and I spend a lot of time on the road, mostly visiting my two daughters, as well as schools and libraries. I talk at conferences, and I go visit my publisher in New York. But mostly, I spend my time at home, sketching, writing, and painting. I spend at least an hour a day in the woods, running and walking with my dogs, and I love to putter around outside, planning gardens and cutting down trees. I spend most of my time in the studio, making pictures and writing stories. It’s a pretty good life, and it took me a long time to get here.”

    I love this new blog meme that you have started up! Llama Llama is such a great series. I really like that they have stories like this where a child will grow up knowing that to be kind and fair they must share.

    This sounds like a great book to teach kids to share. I work with kids agrees 1-3 so this book would be really helpful. Thanks for bringing it to my attention 🙂

    I love your Nonna’s Corner reviews! The Llama Llama books are so cute. They weren’t around when Robin was little, but I’m tucking them into the back of mind for whenever my nieces and nephews (mostly older than Robin) start having children.

  7. Lily

    Ahh Kim I love those illustrations! I didn’t know about Llama Llama books before but i’m definitely considering looking out for them when my nieces and nephews are in town! They’d love them!

    I’ve been reading and reviewing lots of children’s books lately and having such fun. I keep telling people I’ll borrow their little ones for story time. LOL Such a sweet book with valuable lessons.

    These books are very popular. When I am working at the call center for Scholastic I take lots of orders for these adorable Llamas. 🙂 The illustrations are so beautiful and well done. 🙂

    I love, love, love the Llama Llama books! They are all so much fun. Anna Dewdney has another book called Roly Poly Pangoloin and that is super cute too.

    I love Llama Llama! We have all of them I think except for some of the board books. I thought this was a good one though my favorite is still Red Pajama

    With two little ones at home sharing is a lesson that we can’t have enough books on! Plus the Llama Llama books are so cute – Thanks for sharing!
