Book review: Is Your Mama a Llama?, by Deborah Guarino, illustrated by Steven Kellogg

Guarino, Deborah. Is Your Mama a Llama? Illustrated by Steven Kellogg. “A StoryPlay book.” Cartwheel Books, 2018. $5.99. ISBN 9781338232172. Unpaged. Ages 3-5. P7Q8

I love this adorable story of Lloyd the llama looking for his mama. This version is just the right size for small hands to enjoy. Each page includes questions and text boxes that encourage interaction with the story.

VERDICT: I highly recommend this book for home, preschool and kindergarten settings for its lyrical verse and lively pictures.

May 2018 review by Denyse Marsh.

[Editor’s note: This is a new edition of an old favorite, originally published in 1989.  The rhyming text and gentle, humorous illustrations retain their appeal in this new edition.]
