Llama Llama Misses Mama, written and illustrated by the wonderful Anna Dewdney , is the latest installment in the widely popular Llama books. In this one, little Llama heads off for the first day of preschool! As the day goes on, filled with new and different experiences, Llama becomes more and more apprehensive until he just misses his mama too much and doesn't want to participate in any of the activities.
After a little cry and a pep talk from Teacher and friends, Llama learns that school can be fun, new friends are great, and Mama will always come back!
Always adorable and written in fun rhymes, Llama Llama Misses Mama is a fantastic read aloud and a great choice for kids getting ready to head off to school this fall.

Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy, written and illustrated by David Soman and Jacky Davis is the companion to the New York Times Bestseller, Ladybug Girl. The adorable star of that book is back and she has a friend!
When Lulu, A.K.A. Ladybug Girl, heads out for an afternoon at her favorite playground (with Mom and trusty dog Bingo in tow), readers know they're in for an adventure. She meets a boy there and they instantly decide to be friends and play together. Unfortunately neither wants to play what the other wants to play and the end up in a big argument! When Lulu suggest playing "Ladybug Girl," her own version of "Superheroes" the boy turns into Bumblebee Boy and the pair have a great time, recruiting some additional friends along the way.
These Ladybug Girl books are cute, quirky, and filled with giggles. Teaching kids that using their imaginations is the best form of play is always a great topic for picture books and these are no exception. A must for all libraries, this one is a great read aloud. I really hope we'll be seeing more Ladybug Girl books in the future!
