When Llama Llama wakes up with a cold, Mama Llama feels his forehead, looks at his throat, and sends him back to bed to rest. Later, she reads Llama Llama a story and makes him some soup, but while Llama Llama is on the mend, Mama is starting to feel sick herself: "Get more tissues. Bring a cup./ Fluff a comfy pillow up./ What else could Mama Llama need?/ How about some books to read?" Dewdney's rhymes are as cozy as ever, and she captures the frustrations of both those who are ill and those who have to attend to them: "Mama coughs, and Llama yawns..../ How long can this day go on?" Readers of any age who have been there will relate. Ages 3–5. (Aug.)
