Maybe sharing's not so bad.

Llama Llama has new neighbors! Nelly Gnu and her mama stop by for a play date, but Llama's not so sure it's time to share all his toys. Maybe just his blocks? It could be fun to make a castle with Nelly . . . But wait—Nelly has Llama's little Fuzzy Llama! The fun turns to tears when Fuzzy Llama is ripped in two, "all because of Nelly Gnu!" Mama comes to the rescue and fixes Fuzzy, but she makes it clear: "I'll put Fuzzy on the stairs, until you're sure that you can share."

Fun to read aloud and helpful to children and parents alike, Llama Llama Time to Share is for any child who needs a little encouragement in sharing.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The sixth title in the bestselling Llama Llama series has the “Gnu” neighbors coming over for a visit. With Llama Llama’s toys fair game for Nelly Gnu, his sharing skills are put to the test: “Oh, disaster! Dolly drama!/ Nelly Gnu has Fuzzy Llama!/ He’s not hers! This isn’t fair!/ Llama doesn’t like to share!” A subsequent tug of war results in a lost arm for Llama’s doll, but Mama Llama saves the day as the two playmates learn to collaborate. Once again, Dewdney conveys a highly relatable source of llama drama with warmth and authentically childlike characters. Ages 3–up. Agent: Deborah Warren, East West Literary Agency. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Llama Llama loves playing with his toys. When the new neighbors come to visit, Llama Llama mets Nelly Gnu. Mama sends Llama Llama and Nelly off to play and reminds Llama Llama to share. Nelly selects the blocks and begins to build walls and stairs while Llama Llama unhappily eyes the proceedings from his chair. He decides to join Nelly and they happily build a castle for Fuzzy (Llama Llama's stuffed llama doll) and Nelly's doll. Shortly thereafter, Llama Llama finds Nelly playing with Fuzzy and the young llama clearly does not want to share his stuffed animal. The illustrations show Llama Llama's facial expressions of frustration with sharing. The dispute begins and the stuffed llama becomes a casualty when its arm tears off at the seams during its tugging between Llama Llama and Nelly. Mama Llama repairs Fuzzy and leaves it up to Llama Llama to make the decision of when he is ready to share Fuzzy with Nelly. This book is part of the "Llama Llama" series that involve dilemmas that children may find interesting as they relate the plot to their lives. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
School Library Journal
PreS-K—When the new neighbors stop by for a visit, Mama reminds Llama Llama and Nelly Gnu to share. The two youngsters get along well until Nelly plays with Llama Llama's most cherished toy, and a brief scuffle results in Fuzzy Llama's arm being torn off. Not to worry, the toy and friendship are soon mended, leaving everyone anticipating the next playdate. Dewdney's large paintings are bright, bold, and expressive. This picture book will be a pleasure to share with friends, old and gnu.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
Kirkus Reviews
Dewdney's newest Llama Llama picture book delivers a lesson in social skills to its camelid protagonist and its young readers, too. When the brand-new (gnu) neighbors come to visit, Llama Llama's mother prompts him to befriend Nelly Gnu while she serves up tea for Mrs. Gnu and her babe in arms. Seeming rather leery about his mother's admonition, "…don't forget to share," Llama Llama leads his playmate over to his toys. All goes well enough until she starts playing with his prized Fuzzy Llama doll--without his permission. A tug of war ensues, and the doll ends up with a ripped-off appendage. Luckily, Mama Llama is not only a good hostess, she's also handy with a needle and thread. Both mothers prompt their young ones to apologize to one another, and Fuzzy Llama is left on the step until they are ready to share. All's well that ends well, and after playing happily with other toys, they do end up sharing Fuzzy Llama, and the visit ends with them as fast friends looking forward to their next play date. While the rhyming text comes across as rather forced or twee in places, bright, cheery illustrations match the positive, easy tone of the story with its easily resolved conflict. A solid addition to the popular series for toddlers and preschoolers. (Picture book. 2-4)
