Product Description

From Amazon

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

Format: Paperback
lling Lloyd the llama is the main character in this sectacular book. He asks all of his friends if their mama's are llamas but they all fail in telling him yes. This book is a rhyming book that leads Lloyd to the truth about who's mama is a llama. The setting of the story takes place in the moutains to the ponds in the valley. The main characters are Lloyd, Lyn, the two llamas.
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?

In this children's whimsical favorite, wide-eyed baby Llama tours from daylight to sunset, asking his animal-friends the repeated question, IS YOUR MAMA A LLAMA and gets a different rhymed riddle each time for him (and the young readers) to guess the answers. The visits to the bats, swans, cows, seals, kangaroos and his own kind constitute a whole heartwarming poem where different creatures with similar twinkling smiles gather together to celebrate the mother-baby bond. Children learn the characteristics of each natural residents mentioned, hear the rhythm of crisp verses and enjoy the visually enchanting illustrations that end with little llama finally returns and cuddles up with his llama mama.

"Is your Mama a llama? I asked my friend Rhonda." "I think not, is how Rhonda responded." Little llama wants to know if his friend's mothers are llamas too. Superb, rich illustrations of the baby animals and mamas, including such exotics as bats and swans make this a Storytime favorite. My group has this one memorized and love to read along with the illustrations. Remember they are only three! New members to the group feel comfortable giving the correct responses with the rest of the tried and true. Treat your group to the bigger than life version. Fun to turn the huge pages and the illustrations translate well.

Riveting. Filled with suspense as the reader
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 book is your Mama a Llama is a good book for extremely young children because the book helps children see what different kinds of animals are in the world. The book also explains where the animals live and some common things the do. In the book there is a young llama that goes up to different animals and asked them if there mamas a llama, and the book even rhymes. I would recommend this book for parents to read to their children to teach the different animals or for beginning readers. Those who read this book should really enjoy it.

I was first introduced to this book as part of a college course on literature for children, and instantly fell in love. Rythmic verses of this rhyming text with fill-in-the-blank style pauses at the end of each stanza help early readers learn to read, young children squeal with glee, and everybody within ear shot get the urge to get up and dance! In fact, a reading of this book has been produced on tape, with a wonderful latino-mambo background beat; it's also available in oversized format for reading in a group.

Is your mama a llama I asked my friend...? This phrase is repeated through out the book giving the intended audience of a pre-schooler the chance to assist in "reading" the book.
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.

I've given this book to every one of my nieces and nephews between 1-3 yrs of age and they love it! (Disregard the 4-8 age recommendation) The rhymes are fun to hear, the words are silly and the pictures are cute! They just keep giggling and their parents laugh reading it to them! This is always a winner as a gift (especially for Moms on Mother's Day). I now give it to new Moms-to-be at the baby shower along with my other favorite, Barnyard Dance.
