Format: Paperback
"The Lavender Llama" is a young children's book that addresses a complicated problem affecting a countless number of people every day: discrimination. This book is suitable for children ages three to seven. The author approaches this issue with tenderness and love. She has taken a difficult subject and produces a wonderful and loving book. "The Lavender Llama" is written with a remarkable tactfulness that is rarely found.

Author Tandy Braid is no stranger to children's issues, as she is a former teacher and currently an elementary school counselor. This book also comes with a teaching guide, which gives it a special touch. Her warmth toward children is quite evident in "The Lavender Llama." Furthermore, she displays great expertise of both illustrating and writing for children, as well as, teaching children the only way to stop hate and discrimination, is through love and respect.

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.

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.
