Another Picture Book Review by Jean Matthew Hall featuring 2018 picture books.
Talk about cute!
Leah Gilbert’s first picture book, A Couch for Llama, is that and more. Her illustrations are colorful and inviting. And that llama is sooo cuddly.
It was published by Sterling Children’s Books in 2018. The ISBN is 978-1-4549-2511-8.
Gilbert’s text is sparse. Most of the story is told by the terrific illustrations. Illustrator/authors have that amazing opportunity, you know.
A Couch for Llama is a story of kindness and generosity. The Lago family buys a new couch. Which just happens to land in a field with a llama. Llama, of course, falls madly in love with the new couch. But the Lago family do, too.
What will they do?
I think pretty much any child from two to ten will enjoy A Couch for Llama.
And they might accidentally learn something about the joy of sharing as they read.
