LLAMA LLAMA

We haven’t done a theme focusing on a single book character (in recent memory, anyway). But we are this time, because Llama Llama is a preschool phenomenon. With lots of titles about him, in both board books and picture books, he is well-known and well-loved by many children.  Author/illustrator Anna Dewdny perfectly and lovingly captures the daily joys and fears of a young llama and his unbreakable bond with his mother – in rhyming text, no less.  Be on the lookout for our llama friend on the Books-Go-Round truck.

The Books-Go-Round truck is in the early literacy business and as in any business we follow best practices.  Five early literacy practices — established by the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA) —  are as follows:

* Talking

* Singing

* Reading

* Writing

* Playing

We attempt to integrate as many of these practices as possible in our monthly library programs for preschoolers.  Turns out, research supports the efficacy of the activities teachers, librarians and others who work with young children have been doing all along.   Visit  Kent (Ohio) District Library’s helpful website  to learn more.
