Read an Excerpt


One morning, Picasso went to stand atop his hill and count the animals as usual.

"Ten chickens, five ducks, two sheep, and . . ."

Picasso looked to the left. He looked to the right. He turned in circles and looked all around the yard. No lamb! Nola was missing!

    A Lamb and a Llama is a beautifully written and original story.

    A Lamb and a Llama is a beautifully written and original story. It tells the tale of a Llama named Picasso who guards over the other animals. One day, a new baby lamb named Nola is born. As with any new addition, there is some adjusting to do. There are times when the new baby aggravates him. Yet at the same time, an affection grows between the two animals. When Nola disappears, Picasso leads the search party to bring her home safely. This is a scenario my three older children could really relate to since we have a baby in the house who is just starting to toddle around and steal all their toys. But of course they still love their baby brother, just like Picasso loves Nola.

    My whole family enjoyed reading this story. Its a unique idea that was actually inspired by true events. Picasso is a very real llama who formed a special bond with a little sheep who went missing. Ashley Bustamante took these real life events and brought them to life for children everywhere in this well written and beautifully illustrated picture book. But believe it or not, there's still more that makes this book unique. In the borders of the pages are fun facts about sheep and llamas. Did you know that most sheep are black when they're born or that llamas pull back their ears when they're nervous? I sure didn't! Now when we go to the zoo, we pay special attention to the llamas and lambs to see what they're doing. I love a book that is a fun read for younger children, but that also teaches them a thing or two about the world we live in. This book is full of fun facts and has a great moral. Anyone can be friends because, really, we aren't that different underneath our "fur"! I would recommend this book to anyone with young children. Its the type of story your whole family will enjoy reading over and over again.
