Llama Llama Zippity-Zoom

Anna Dewdney. Viking, $5.99 (14p) ISBN 978-0-670-01328-9

Llama Llama’s third board book is a simple episode dedicated to outdoor play, told mostly through sound effects. “Llama Llama zip!/ Llama Llama zoom!/ Llama Llama Red Pajama vroom vroom vroom,” reads Dewdney’s upbeat verse as Llama Llama and a friend ride scooters and trikes. Dewdney’s expressive images capture the joy of fun in the sun—from playground time to popsicle breaks—and the onomatopoeic rhymes ensure a spirited read-aloud. Available simultaneously: Llama Llama Hoppity-Hop. Up to age 3. Agent: Deborah Warren, East-West Literary Agency. (May)
