It is very important for parents to introduce the right kind of books at the right age to their growing toddlers. Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading is good for him. My kids love to read the Llama Llama series of books by Anna Dewdney.
An American author and illustrator of children books, Anna Dewdney has won laurels and critical acclaim for her profound work. Her Llama Llama series is highly popular among parents, teachers and even booksellers.
The Llama Llama book series includes books Llama Llama Red Pajama; Llama Llama Mad at Mama; Llama Llama Misses Mama; and several more. The books feature pre-schooler Llama Llama whose adventures include bedtime drama; a first day of school & a sleep over at grandparent’s house. The fun-to-read rhyming text, gentle humor and familiar situations are extremely comforting and helpful to young children. The books exhibit emotive content, signature characters; family relationships and address the everyday issues of young children. Because of the rhyming language and colourful illustrations, these books are often used to promote reading in children and literacy.
