Book Description

July 2003
As a parent, teacher and counselor I feel that bibliotherapy is the best approach when teaching children about life's lessons. Children love picture books and if done properly it will captivate their attention. They also love rhyming books - as a Counselor the children are quick to point out when a book rhymes and love the sing-song approach to learning. This book The Lavender Llama introduces the concept of racism and discrimination to children on a very basic level. How the llamas finally get healthy again is from knowledge and love.

Great book to utilize when teaching young childen 3-up about discrimination. It is the story about a llama whose Mom is red and Dad is blue, he is born lavender. The other red and blue llamas don't want to play with him because he is a different color. They end up getting sick from a disease called "discrimination." It is up to our lavender friend to find the cure - "mutual respect"! Introduces the concept of racism in a way that children can understand and relate to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lavender Llama Review Sept. 24 2005
By Steven J. Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a nice simple book to help talk about children who are bi-racial . I teach kindergarten and I have 4 out of 11 students who are "Lavender Llama's." They felt pretty special! I can't even remember how I ran across the lesson plan using this book, but I'm so glad I did! I teach in a predominetly African-American Catholic school (Prek - 8th gr.) and we talk a lot about the past and how people were so prejudice. Unfortuntely, I have to tell them it's still going on now. So, again I really appreciate this book.
