Llama, llama, home with mama: New Book Release ~Plus~ 3 Winner #Giveaway (9/20)

Cold and flu season is just around the corner and although we try our best to avoid getting sick, the odds are high that someone in your family will get the sniffles. And doesn’t it always seem that if one person gets sick, the whole family ends up coming down with something?

This new release brings the comforting familiarity we know from those sick days where mama took care of us, and now that I am a mother I find this book especially sweet as Llama knows what to do to care for mama when she gets sick. More than just a sick day, this book celebrates the mother-child bond and the role models we can be for our children. This quickly became a favorite and is currently on my daughter’s nightstand.

Ahhh…CHOO! Llama Llama wakes up feeling under the weather. His head is feeling hot and his throat is sore. No school for little Llama today. What is there to do all day? Being sick is such a bore. But when Mama begins to feel sick, Llama knows just what to do. He gets her tissues, fluffs her pillow, and finds a book to read together. Spending time with each other may be just the thing to help Llama and Mama feel better!
