Today I wanted to talk Grandparent’s Day. Penguin Young Readers sent me this adorable book, Llama Llama, Gram and Grandpa to read and review. And so I wanted to introduce you to this cute book and I made some Printable Grandparents Day Cards for you.
Llama Llama, Gram and Grandpa is an adorable book in which little Llama goes to visit his Grandparents for a sleepover. Along the way, though, he realizes that he forgot his stuffed animal friend at home. As bed time approaches, Llama’s anxiety of not having his stuffed animal friend grows. Have no fear, though because Grandpa Llama comes to the rescue. All of the books in the Llama Llama series are adorable and this book is no different! I think as a parent (or just as a person!), we all know of a time when Grandma and Grandpa come to the rescue and make everything all better. Llama Llama, Gram and Grandpa is a perfect book to read during a Grandparent’s Day lesson or to give as a gift to a Grandparent. The love of a grandparent is universal and it is really cute to see how Grandpa Llama sacrifices his stuffed animal lovey so that little llama will feel more comfy sleeping overnight at their house.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
