Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–With its sweet rendering of the trials of bedtime and separation anxiety, this book's familiar theme will be a hit with youngsters. Baby Llama, all tucked in and kissed after his bedtime story, watches his mama leave the room with a worried expression on his face. When he calls her and she does not come back immediately, he succumbs to a fit of wailing and weeping, finally bringing his panic-stricken mother at a full gallop. After her reassurance that "Mama Llama's always near, even if she's not right here," Baby Llama settles and drifts off to sleep. This story has a simple rhyme scheme, using natural language that children will enjoy. The large, boldly colored pictures have a grand and sweeping quality, extending out to the edges of the pages. Baby Llama's facial expressions capture his fear and alarm wonderfully. The contrast between light and dark enhances the drama in the story. This effective read-aloud will be a popular choice for storyhour and one-on-one sharing.–Corrina Austin, Locke's Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada

From Booklist

PreS. After Mama Llama reads Baby Llama a bedtime story and turns out the light, the llama drama begins. Feeling alone without his mama, Baby Llama wants a drink and calls down to Mama, who says she'll be up soon. But Baby Llama frets, whimpers, boo-hoos, pouts, and shouts. What if Mama is gone? At last, she appears (she was talking on the phone), and reassures her baby that she's "always near, / even if she's / not right here." Dewdney gives a wonderfully fresh twist to a familiar nighttime ritual with an adorable bug-eyed baby llama, staccato four-line rhymes, and page compositions that play up the drama. The simple rhymes call out for repeating, and the whimsical illustrations cleverly dramatize the increasing panic. Key worry words, such as fret, are highlighted, and for extra humor, Baby Llama's toy llama mimics his every expression. A real charmer that will leave preschoolers giggling and parents appreciating the familiar scenario. Julie Cummins

I bought this book following a recommendation from a top 10 list of bedtime books created by the Calgary Public Library. When the book arrived I opened it and immediately fell in love with Llama Llama Red Pajama! The story art is simple but beautiful and conveys everything that is needed :) The story itself is a joy to read and wonderful to listen to. My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter fell in love with it the first time I read it to her and it has become her all time favourite book. One nice option is that if you are a Grandma Llama you can substitute "gramma" for "mama" - my son is the one who started this :) If you buy it you won't be sorry!

I run a daycare with children from 12 months to 4 yrs and at story time they all are shouting for Ilama Ilama books. I have every book and even the small ones. And when asking the children what they'd want for Christmas they tell me Ilama Ilama books, even the 18 month olds hahahaha Every story is cute and funny. I hope more books are written as they are great. I even bought the Nobunny's Perfect from the same author and it is also a good one. Great author Great stories!!! If you are buying one of these books but warned they are highly addictive :D

Format: Hardcover
This is really children's book classic. The rhymes strike you first, then the pictures and how they work with the rising humor of the text. This fun read-aloud speaks to the frustration we all feel when things don't happen quite fast enough. Mama Llama is supposed to bring Baby Llama a drink of water, but she's washing dishes, then the phone rings and then baby llama drama erupts! But Mama Llama calms her impatient baby and tucks him back in with a hug and a kiss. The loving Mama Llama is teaching her son to be independent and to understand that he is loved even when his mother isn't there at times... I also recommend another great series of books titled "Why Some Cats are Rascals"
