Great guided reading book!

I am a third grade teacher and this past year one of my guided reading groups read "A Llama in the Family" by Johanna Hurwitz. We had so much fun reading about Adam and his adventures with Ethan Allen. My students were enthralled with the idea of a llama as a family pet. Johanna Hurwitz was skillful weaving so many fun and meaningful experiences into her story. As a post reading assignment my students had to make pamphlets to advertise a llama trek. What made it special to me is that this summer my husband and I found a bed and breakfast, The Applewood Inn in Virginia, that actually offered llama treks. Needless to say, that was the hook that got us to stay there. We didn't eat blueberry soup on our trek, but we learned so much more about llamas. Pick up a copy of the book, it is so much fun to read and there is much to learn about llamas.

Another good book from Johanna Hurwitz

Hi. I'm a third grader from the U.S. I give A Llama in the Family 4 stars because it is very funny and a little dull. It's a little easy but still another good book from Johanna Hursitz. I recommend it to everyone ages 7-8. It talks about a llama named Ethan Allen. The main characters are Adam, April, mom, dad, and Ethan Allen. I didn't like the ending because it really doesn't give a good ending. They could have written a little more but it's still a great book!

It's a spectacular book!

Hi I'm a third grader from the U.S and I give a Llama in The Family four stars for its good ideas and suspense. I was on my toes through the whole book. I would recommend this book to a 7 or 8 year old kid because it is challenging but it is not long enough. As you probably know by the title the story is about a llama that somehow joins a family. You will find that the llama makes the family crazy with sprises and excitement.

This is good!

This book tells of a boy who wants a bike but ends up with a llama. He is not very excited about it at first but then he starts to like it. They become good friends. He still wants the bike though. He will do everything he can to get it too. This book could be improved. It was kind of short. If it were longer I think it could have been rated 5 stars. If you want to know what happens... read it for yourself.
