A Couch for Llama

The other night I surprised the girls with a new book at bedtime, called "A Couch for Llama."  At first the girls were like, "Come on, Mom, we want another book."  But, I told them to give it a chance as I had read it earlier in the day, and it was funny and cute.  So, they did, and after the first page they were hooked.  Not only is the story full and easy to understand, but the illustrations really do bring the story to life.  

This book is about a family who is in need of a new couch, but something goes wrong when they drive it back home, on the roof of their falls off and lands in the field on the side of the road, where a curious llama lives.  The llama stumbles across the couch and has no idea what it is.  But, after inspection and trying it out, he finds he loves the couch.  When the family realizes the couch is missing, they retrace their steps and find the couch with the llama sitting on it.  Now, I would have left the couch, but the family in the book had another idea...swap their old couch with the red one they just bought.  So, they drove home, got their old couch and made the swap.  The llama got to keep a comfy couch to sit on, and the family had their bright new (well almost new) couch they had purchased.  So, it was a win-win for all.  :-)

Like I said, my girls really enjoyed this story and have since asked me to read it again.  They laugh when I get to the page where the llama makes itself comfortable on the couch.  They both said they would have loved to have seen the llama sitting on a couch and wondered if animals would prefer our furniture over their bedding. 

If you are looking for a cute story to read to your child that will have the laugh and smile, then you will want to check out "A Couch for Llama" when it arrives on bookshelves on February 6th.
