MILA BOOKSIT: Picks for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day

By: Nancy Churnin, Mila Vincent and Johannah Luza~

As a big fan of her parents, Shayna and Devon Vincent, Mila Vincent, our six-year-old book critic, was excited to review these Llama Llama books based on Anna Dewdney’s best-selling children’s book series for Mother’s and Father’s Day with her grandmother, Johannah Luza. They think your kids will ‘llove’ them, too!

Mila: Llama Llama wants to build his mom a fort for Mother’s Day and take her to the playground and go on the slip-and-slide. His gramma says those are Llama Llama’s favorite things, not his mama’s. When he’s at school, the teacher tells the class that together, they will all make a quilt, and each student will put a square on the quilt for their mothers. When Mother’s Day comes, their teacher shows the moms the class quilt, and each mom sees she has a unique square on the quilt. That made Llama Llama’s mom very happy! It made me happy, too!

Mila:I liked this book so much because Nelly Gnu gave her dad a skateboard for Father’s Day so they could ride together, and that’s what my dad and I do. I don’t have a skateboard yet, but he lets me ride on his with him. Nelly Gnu also wanted to wash her dad’s truck for him. My dad has a jeep, and I LOVE washing it! He gets the soap for me, and I scrub. This book has good ideas for Father’s Day, and I like them all.

Johannah: These are two cute books. One is about Mother’s Day and the other about Father’s Day. I like how the colorful illustrations and the sweet text encourage children to think about their parents and be good to them.
