Llamas with Lemonade: An Unusual Animal ABC

Llamas with Lemonade is a sweetly alliterative animal alphabet book written and illustrated by Ariana Koultourides. Due out 10th Sept 2019 from Annick Press, it's 32 pages and will be available in boardbook format.

This is a simple and beloved format. Each of the 26 animals is drawn clearly and simply along with a prop using the same letter of the alphabet. They're all really whimsical and cute and this will absolutely become a favorite read-to-me or bedtime book for the youngest children. There is a llama with lemonade (see cover), a mouse with a muffin, an urchin with an umbrella and 23 others. There's also a pictorial gallery double page at the back of the book with all of the letters together for memory and quiz fun. X is completely adorable (and yes, he has a xylophone, because X is always a xylophone).

This would also make a superlative classtime or library read.

Five stars. Such adorable and appealing art.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
