Llama Llama Misses Mama

Llama Llama Misses Mama

by Anna Dewdney Illustrated by Anna Dewdney

Llama Llama just can't get out of bed. It's his first day of school, and he's not too happy about it. Still, he trudges along and makes his bed, brushes his teeth, and eats his breakfast.

But once he arrives at his classroom — with so many new faces, new names, and new games — little Llama doesn't know what to do. And when Mama Llama leaves, the little guy feels even more shy and alone. What will this lonely llama do? Will Mama ever return?
