The Littlest Llama

Illustrated by:
Illustration of a llama in an Andean village

"Up on the altiplano, the littlest llama wants to have fun, but the other llamas are busy. He sets off on a short journey to find playmates, but something 'fierce and orange and round like the sun' (a child's ball) chases him, and he scurries home, frightened. There, a surprise awaits: a new baby llama to play with, and also, most important, Mama's comforting cuddle…Throughout, the text and art give a strong sense of llama behavior, from dust bathing to neck wrestling, and incorporate South American cultural elements." — Booklist
