Review:


We all know that Mary had a little lamb, and its fleece was as white as snow. But, did you know that Maria had a little llama and its fleece was as white as snow too?


Children will love this slight twist on an old tale. Maria has a llama that follows her every where even to school. The other children loved the little llama but not nearly as much as Maria.


It made the children laugh and play to see a llama at school.
Los ninos rieron y jugaron al ver una llama en la escuela.


This little story represents a different culture all together. Young readers will see a different countryside, culture and way of living along with learning the Spanish translated sentences on each page. Colorful Peruvian inspired drawings will entertain and teach young readers a new way of life.
