Nelly Gnu, a character from the popular Llama Lama books, gets her own spin-off tale, and it's a winner. Llama Lama always seems to have dilemma or learn a lesson in his stories. But this one is pure joy -- simply a celebration of how fun it can be to do stuff with your dad.

But it's not drippy and sentimental. Nelly and her dad work on a project together as partners and enjoy the satisfaction of creation. The simple rhymes make it a fun read aloud, perfect for bedtime, too.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
