Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Summer Whiting
This book will introduce a barnyard favorite, the llama, to young readers. It contains interesting facts that will make young people fall in love with this endearing creature. Did you know that llamas can speak to each other by humming? Or that a group of llama is called a herd? Llamas can even carry packs for people! A diagram is located in the back of the book and illustrates the split upper lip, the split-toes foot, and the belly, among other parts. A short glossary and an index can be found, as well as a list of fun facts. This is a good read for young readers and would assist students in both the lower and upper grades during the animal unit. It is, however, pricey for the amount of information presented. The illustrations are very basic and include a limited color palette, which may bore reluctant readers. This book would, however, be a nice introduction to using the glossary and index. Reviewer: Summer Whiting
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—Each title has a dual text, which appears on alternating pages. The large-font, easy-to-read main text presents introductory information about the animal and her young, while the smaller font offers more details. Both books are clearly and simply written. The illustrations are colorful but lack detail and are amateurishly drawn. A labeled diagram and a page of additional facts round out each presentation.—Colleen D. Bocka, Nathaniel Rochester Community School, Rochester, NY
