The Nose Knows! Llama Llama Yum Yum Yum! by Anna Dewdney
LOVES TO EAT,
SNACKS AND MEALS
AND SPECIAL TREATS.
Eggs and toast and a glass of O.J. start the day.
There's a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to munch for lunch, and juice and crackers are afternoon snackers.
And in between Llama Llama goes with Mama to the grocery store for more. Veggies and cheese are sure to please.
And back home again, supper is a real slurper-upper, with Llama Llama's favorite. Spaghetti is quickly ready, and with spicy herbs and a sprinkle of cheese, it's always time for "More, please!"
And then there's the finale--a dish of ice cream with a cherry on top. For both picky eaters or young foodies, Anna Dewdney's rhyming Little Llama tale, Llama Llama Yum Yum Yum! (Grosset and Dunlap, 2016), has an extra treat along with little Llama's choices to eat. It's a scratch-and-sniff board book, featuring the smells of favorite foods: sweet and fruity (grape jelly in the sandwich) and sour (a sample dill pickle from the deli counter), tangy orange in the juice, and a hint of herb-y oregano in the pasta, with a cherry-vanilla dessert chaser.
Food can be fun, and with Llama Llama, they'll all say YUM. Anna Dewdney's delightful preschool rhymes and charming illustrations are a tasty treat in the little scratch-and-sniff board book just right for a toddler's stocking stuffer.
