When Your Llama Needs a Haircut - ESSENTIAL

Hill, Susanna Leonard When Your Llama Needs a Haircut Illustrated by Daniel Wiseman  BOARD BOOK Little Simon (Simon and Schuster), 2018. $8. Content: G.  

A little boy is trying to get his llama ready for class pictures.  Llama’s hair is out of control, so the boy takes us through the process of washing, brushing and styling the llama’s hair.  Many different hairstyles are considered, but because Llama can’t hold still during his trim, Llama and the boy end up with a buzz cut.  

This series of board books is adorable and this one is my favorite.  The llama has the best facial expressions and the little boy is cute.  The entertaining, yet simple story will keep the reader guessing what happens to Llama’s hair until the end and at the same time teach young kids why it’s important to hold still during a haircut.   

PRE-K – ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
