Before Reading:

  • Show your child the front of the book and encourage them to explore it.
  • They may want to hold it, turn the pages, or even taste it!
  • Point to Llama’s face and ask your child what they think Llama is feeling.

While Reading:

  • Stop if there is something you or your child would like to talk about. Ask questions so they can connect what is happening in the book to things they already know about. Try some of these ideas:
    • What kinds of things do you see at the store? 
    • What does your mad face look like? 
    • What do you do when you’re mad?
    • Ask your child to point out what they see. Name and identify the pictures.
    • What is Llama playing with?
    • Uh-oh! Llama made a mess! I see puffs on the floor

AFTER READING:

  • Spend some time talking about the story. Help your child understand anger. Ask
    • How did Llama feel at the store?
    • What did he do?
    • What made Llama feel better?
    • Help teach your child helpful ways to deal with tough emotions like anger. Reassure them that all emotions are ok to feel, and teach them ways to behave in appropriate ways.

Read this book several times to the children. Hearing the same story again and again helps them learn new words and understand the ideas the hear better. Each day pick a different activity to do with the children after reading.
