Product Description


"Dewdney's artwork is the ideal foil to her rhyming verses--her characters' bleary, sick expressions alone are sure to elicit giggles and knowing smiles." — Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2011

"Llama is sick with a sore throat, and children who have to take 'yucky' medicine will relate to how he feels ... The story has wonderful rhyming phrases and large, colorful illustrations full of priceless facial expressions and body language." — School Library Journal, August 2011

After a really bad cold and flu hit our home I pulled this book out to trick our 3 year old into having a rest. (Read nap.) We love Little Llama and my poor sick child abruptly jumped at the chance to read a new story. Nap time followed shortly thereafter.

HASH(0xaaa290b4) out of 5 stars As entertaining as Dr. Seuss to kids-OK, me too Aug. 23 2011
By Harold Wolf - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Llama Llama is home from school, sick, but it is delightful to read and hear.
Again I bought 3, one for each of our grandchild families. Those kids can't get enough of the Llama Llama stories. This is the latest following the highly grandchild-acclaimed `Llama Llama Holiday Drama.' What a wonderful book to read to a child when they really are home sick from school. It will perk them up, Mama too.

All Llama Llama books do NOT fail bringing smiles and squeals of delight from young children. They love the rhythmic words and cuddly drawings that have made this series such a collectable hit with teachers, parents, adults, as well as the kids. Get the Holiday Drama book as well as this new "Llama Llama Home with Mama" for Christmas gifts. That's exactly what Nana and Pa have done, and we will read this new version prior to gifting. Later we will get the chance to read it to our grandchildren, over, and over, and over, and over. In the end, Llama Llama always learns a lesson suited for all, from toddlers to elderly seniors.

The illustration art inside is the same great Llama quality as all of the Llama Llama books. Although I'm now retired, these books are always a HUGE hit in elementary school classrooms. A must-own set for teachers, so fun to read to the class. Kids beg, "Read it again, please. Read it again." That happens every time, with every Llama Llama book. What a wonderful, and affordable, gift to give your elementary child's teacher for the holiday. Beginning homeschooling readers will read Llama Llama books till they have them memorized.

The series:
Llama Llama Red Pajama
LL Mad at Mama
LL Misses Mama
LL Holiday Drama
& now Llama Llama Home with Mama

Also Amazon has postings for pre-purchase opportunity on younger children's board books with the same wonderful Anna Dewdney Llama Llama character. Check out Llama Llama Nighty-Night and Llama Llama Wakey-Wake; 14 page books for less than $6 that we'll have to pick up for our newest grandchild, Frank, to be born in just 2 weeks. He should be able to read them by January, after all, he is our grandson. :)

HASH(0xaaa294e0) out of 5 stars 4yr old & 2yr old love it Aug. 26 2011

This is the latest installment of the Llama Llama series. Again, I am forced to read this book 3x in a row. This is my children's favorite series.

I love the interaction between Mama Llama and Llama Llama. My kids seem to relate well to the stories because Llama Llama reminds them of themselves. We have read it so often that my kids say the ending word (so they help me rhyme). This author has done a really good job of telling cute story that entertains kids. I especially like towards the end when Mama Llama catches Llama Llama's cold, and now Llama Llama is doing the stuff mama did for him.

Nice read for daytime or bedtime.

HASH(0xaaa29708) out of 5 stars Cute, but not as good as previous books in the series Sept. 3 2011
By Heather Love - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We purchased this on pre-order and were very excited for it to arrive.

I wasn't as pleased as I was with the first two Llama Llama books. The rhymes and rhythm in this latest installment seem trite rather than charming, and the illustrations seem rushed. Whereas "Llama Llama Red Pajama" and "Llama Llama Out with Mama" evoked sentimental feelings and misty eyes for this mother of two, I was just ready for this current installment to be over. Still, it's cute, and my children enjoyed it.

If you're new to Anna Dewdney, try "Llama Llama Red Pajama" or "Roly Poly Pangolin" first. In my opinion, these are her best books.

HASH(0xaaa29600) out of 5 stars So Adorable! Sept. 19 2011
By Cat Lover - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My son is a big fan of the llama llama series. I thought this book was really cute and held his attention. I also found it true to life (those of you who are moms and have read it will know what I'm talking about). I think it is a good book to save for a "sick day." This is definitely one of my favorites form the series.

HASH(0xaaa297f8) out of 5 stars Another Delightful Story July 11 2014
By Nathaniel Wayne - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The Llama Llama books are some of our family's favorites. The art is fun to look at, with wonderfully expressive faces on the characters. The rhymes are playful, enjoyable and easy for little ones to remember. This one is easily relatable for both parents and kids, because all children have had to stay home sick at least a few times.

The only reason this doesn't get a perfect score is the part that says Llama Llama's medicine is yucky. That may sound like a weird criticism, especially since so many medicines are yucky. But I'm finding my daughter to be highly suggestive and defaulting to what books or shows tell her rather than learning from her own experiences. For example, she was never afraid of thunder until she watched a show where they talked about thunder being scary. And now she's afraid of it. She's been fine with medicine before, but I worry that she'll declare it yucky now because the book said it is. This fear hasn't been tested yet, but I thought it was worth pointing out.
