The board book version of this popular recitation of animal characteristics is equally as delightful as other editions, with one key improvement: it's inedible. This robust reissue follows lovable Lloyd the llama on his quest to find out what percentage of the baby animal population has llamas for mamas. The rhymes are original and infectious, and the riddles are sure to have children shouting out the answers in anticipation of turning the page.
Youngsters often exhibit an insatiable appetite for adorable baby animals, and Is Your Mama a Llama provides plenty of fodder for fawning. Illustrator Steven Kellogg, however, manages to keep the pictures sweet without being saccharine. And rest assured, no matter how often your little one is compelled to kiss the critters, the sturdy board-book format will stand the test of time (and of course, slobber). (Ages 0 to 4) --This text refers to the Board book edition.
From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1-- An enchanting animal guessing game for preschoolers. Lloyd, a baby llama, asks each of his friends, "Is your mama a llama?," and all respond in turn with a rhyming description of their mother that is answered on the following page. Young listeners will delight in the playful rhythm of the text, and each riddle is sure to result in a resounding chorus of response. Kellogg's full-color illustrations of animals in their natural surroundings maintain their usual appeal and humor and will carry well to groups, while individual readers will be further rewarded by the subtlety and detail of the backgrounds. --Starr LaTronica, North Berkeley Library, CA

Minor chariters are: Dave, Clyde, Jane, Freddy and Rhonda. The theme of the story is who has a llama for mama. The style of the book is fiction and it's rhyming in every two sentences. the plot of the story if who has a llama for a mama and in the end ,Lloyd finally finds out the truth. I recommend this fictional story to anyoone that likes a childhood mystery. Read and find out whose mama is a llama?
questions whether Lloyd will ever find anyone
whose mother is of his own species. This story
definitely bucks the trend of most of the children's picture books being published today which are either exceedingly preachy or insultingly simple. "Is Your Mama a Llama?" is
neither. It is well-balanced between its illustrations and its narrative. A clever surprise is inserted as Lloyd finds Llyn although
I would have preferred if she had been named Llullu which is what I would name a female llama if I had one.
The sing-song verse clues the listener and reader to what each species Lloyd's friends are.
I have read this book to my pre-k to 1st grade classes and all have loved to join in the reading AND have requested to read it again and again!
This is a great book for the emergant reader.
