Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Apparently even baby llamas have trouble sleeping. With its read-aloud four-line rhymes and relatable story, Llama Llama Pajama qualifies as the perfect bedtime reading little boys and girls who sometimes have trouble sleeping.

Children's Literature
This picture book is a bedtime story for young children who have dealt with the concerns of falling asleep. The book is also about mother-comfort and a young child struggling to cope. The only two characters are Baby Llama and Mama Llama. The familiar story is basically told in four-line rhymes and conveys all the emotions of baby waiting for mama to bring a glass of water to him while he also waits for sleep to come. The mom is busy downstairs and when the phone rings, the wait becomes longer. Perhaps the cleverest rhyme is when mama returns to the baby after his loud fussing and says, "please stop all this llama drama and be patient for your mama." The illustrations make the book a winner. The background colors are bold with dark blues portraying nighttime. The characters are painted softly with wonderful facial expressions and terrific action poses. Baby yells for his mother and the force of his yell is apparent. Mama comes running, and we see her quick movements and concern. The book is a good blend of text and illustrations with an appropriate story for its intended audience. 2005, Viking, Ages 2 to 6.
—Jacki Vawter, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
PreS-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 Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    My 15 month daughter adores this book.

    Since she received this book at 11 months, my daughter adores this book. She searches for it if it is not on the coffee table. She finds it and brings it to us to read or just sits and looks at the pages, flipping back and forth. If you just say LLama, Llama Red Pajama it sets her off on a hunt. If she is about to have a melt down or is in the middle of one, bringing out the book stops the melt down in its tracks. Still her fav four months later.

    Excellent children's book and fun to read over and over. Highly Recommended!!!!!

    I recently picked up this book for my 1 year old daughter. She loves books and being read to. She's never seemed to favor one book over another until now!! She loves Llama Llama Red Pajama! She gets excited when you even say the title of the book. More amazing to me is how intently she listens and looks at the book. She's not overly eager to turn the page in this book, like she is with almost all others. We read it at least a few times a day and because its fun to read, neither myself or my husband dread having to read it. I'm waiting for her to wake from her nap and then we're off to the bookstore to buy the other books in this collection.

    Free at Read for the Record

    I love this book,but was disappointed once this ebook was downloaded to my iPad. For this price, there should be interactive pages and audio. The same quality online book was free at the Read for the Record website. The author's website is another resource that I would recommend which is free as well.

    Love it Love it...none above it!

    My son loved this book from the first read! It has a great lesson as he's an only child and can be quite dependent upon "Mama" at times--especially bed time. Wonderful illustrations telling a super story.

    Wonderful book

    My son is three now, but we discovered this book through the Dolly Parton book of the month club and thank goodness we did because my son has loved it since the day we got it in the mail. We read this book just about every night at bedtime and I am going to get some of the other baby llama books soon.

    Great book but may be too much for young toddlers

    This book is so cute--great illustrations and love the rhyming text--but my 1 year old is really distressed by it. The picture of the llama baby screaming really freaked him out and now he cries when he sees the book. Maybe there was an age range given but I didn't see it. Probably just fine for older toddlers but tread carefully if you have a younger child.

    THIS MAMA LLAMA LOVED IT

    We sat at B&N and read this book. I loved it because it is just like my kids calling me after I prayed and said good night. They are learning to read and the rhyming words and the illustrations are fun encouraging them to want to read the book. It is a great book for 5 and 6 years old children. And, Mama Llama loved it!!! (But Papa Llama said it was too expensive - almost $17 so we will read it at the library until the price goes down some). Definitely recommended!!!!

    SO CUTE!!!!

    I got this for my niece last Christmas and she loved it. Wanted to have it read to her over and over again. And I thought it was too cute. The story is something kids and parents can relate to and the rhyming with llama was just too much. My husband and I still use the phrase "Llama Drama" and it's not even our book and we don't have kids!

    Best bedtime story

    My daughter received this book for her 3rd birthday and it became an instant favorite (she's almost 4 and it's still her favorite at bedtime). She acts out the lines right along with me! I would definitely recommend this book for any toddler/preschooler.

    A reviewer

    This books is the best. My daughter received this book on her 1st birthday and it has been a favorite ever since. She is currently 29 months old. She now anticipates whats coming and acts out what Baby Llama is doing (minus the yelling). She loves this book so much that I have been using it to help potty train her. She will only sit on her potty if she can read a book. She picks this book and a couple others every time. Also we have had to go and buy a second book because the first book was used so much that the pages become fragile. Such a treat of a book.

    A. D. Goose Tarbox, Writer

    This book I could relate to. Young children are often impatient wanting things now (I'm an adult and sometimes I want things now too), but this book reminds little ones that even if mom is busy she still loves her child. Sometimes parents have to answer the phone, or finish what they are doing, as the llama mama in this book does, before she can bring a drink of water up to her child. Mom's will always attend to an emergency of course, but if it isn't an emergency, it is good for children to remember they sometimes need to be patient. Mom's are very busy. I know I am. Enjoyed the message Anna Dewdney intended for the book and liked her illustrations. A. D. Tarbox, author of ALREADY ASLEEP

    Son's favorite for an entire year

    My son received this last year for his 2nd birthday. It continues to be his favorite a year later. He memorized a lot of it and is the first book he will go to reach for. I just wish there were more books by this author or a llama llama series.

    Wonderful book. Granddaughter loves it

    My 2 year old granddaughters preschool recommended this whole series. They read them in school and my granddaughter loves it. This was our first purchase of the Llama Llama books and we'll be buying more.
    The story and illustrations are delightful.

    Best children's book ever!!!

    I first bought this book for my two sons and they loved it so much that I started buying it for my nieces and nephews. Now whenever there is a holiday or birthday for a two year old in my life I get this book and it has been the biggest hit. My boys are now 8 and 6 and it is still one of their favorites.
