If you're a mom, you've been there. It doesn't matter if you are a single mom, a married mom or a divorced mom. It doesn't matter if you work out of the home, if you study frantically for a new degree while your kids are at school, if you spend your days juggling 10 things at once from your living room or if you manage some combination of the above. Sometimes so much sanity depends upon two tiny seconds of grownup time to talk to your best friend without being asked, "But WHY does Miss Brittany feel angry with Mr. John? And Mama, where is the sewage treatment plant? Can we go there? And Mama, can we please have pizza for dinner RIGHT NOW?"
Our old friend Mama Llama is back, and she sends the kids into the playroom to play together while she sits down to enjoy a cup of tea with a new neighbor. Of course, playtime doesn't go quite as Mama Llama might have hoped. If you and your littles want to find out how the sainted Mama deals with the latest "llama-mergency" and transforms a disaster replete with loss of limb back into a peaceful playtime, don't miss author and illustrator Anna Dewdney at Lemuria to sign your copy of the new "Llama Llama Time to Share" (Viking Books, 2012, $17.99) or any of your other Llama Llama favorites.
Anna Dewdney will be at Lemuria Books (4465 Interstate 55 N., Suite 202, 601-366-7619) Sept. 24 at 4 p.m. to sign copies of her latest "Llama Llama" book.
