Llama has a sharing drama!

Build a tower. Make a moat.
Nelly's dolly sails a boat.
What can Llama Llama add?
Maybe sharing's not so bad.

Llama Llama has new neighbors! Nelly Gnu and her mama stop by for a play date, but Llama's not so sure it's time to share all his toys. Maybe just his blocks? It could be fun to make a castle with Nelly . . . But wait--Nelly has Llama's little Fuzzy Llama! The fun turns to tears when Fuzzy Llama is ripped in two, "all because of Nelly Gnu!" Mama comes to the rescue and fixes Fuzzy, but she makes it clear: "I'll put Fuzzy on the stairs, until you're sure that you can share."

Fun to read aloud and helpful to children and parents alike, Llama Llama Time to Share is for any child who needs a little encouragement in sharing.

My daughters loved this one, and I love how the author pauses mid story with a picture, which begs me to ask the question, "Oh no, what happened?" and they retell the whole beginning of the story in their attempt to explain the picture.

Another great Llama Llama story! Sharing can be tricky and like the commentor before me said, it's good to see a story that doesn't say you have to share absolutely everything. I also have a new phrase to replace "llama drama" :)

As with all the previous “Llama Llama” books, my 4-year daughter loves this book! My only disagreement with the author is that Llama is expected to share all his toys, including his favorite stuffed animal, and my personal belief is that just as most adults would not share their diamond rings, not their prized Corvette, a child should be allowed to also have 1 special item that they don’t have to share. That being said, I’d love to see a children’s book that not only teaches a child to share, but also teaches children to respect another child’s right not to have to share absolutely everything.
