If you love Llama Drama…

…check out Anna Dewdney’s newest book, The Roly Poly Pangolin.

The first time I answered a question about a pangolin I was convinced the child was trying to say “Penguin.” I kept smiling patiently and saying, “Yes, we have penguin books.” I now know there is such a thing, and that it is not remotely related to a penguin. Never again will I question an insistent young scholar.

Dewdney’s book is another fantastic rhyming jaunt great for reinforcing phonological awareness. Most children who have a difficult time learning to read struggle with phonological awareness, or the ability to hear the smaller sounds within words. Enjoy rhyming books and songs with your child to help them develop this awareness!
