Llama Llama Misses Mama by Anna Dewdney (Viking, 2009)
Llama Llama is starting school for the very first time and is feeling shy, scared, and lonely without mama there. This is a gem for sharing for first-day jitters with the preschool set. Anna Dewdney has once again done a fabulous job of capturing the emotions, the love, and the "llama drama" that young children will recognize in their own experiences. Llama Llama finds that while he loves and misses his mama, he can also love school!
