- Llama Llama Red PajamaDewdney’s first book of this series, “Llama Llama Red Pajama”, is a home run as far as picture books go. It’s a story parents and kids alike can relate to: Mama Llama says good night and puts Little Llama to bed and goes down stairs to clean up and take care of a few things. But Llama can’t sleep and needs her back. He worries and wimpers and hollers until he gets her back! The sing-songy rhyming in this book and the whining and yelling that the reader will have to do as Llama make this book one of the most fun to read. The accompanying artwork sets this book apart from the others you’ll see at the bookstore, as each page is its own picture painted on canvas, which you do not see often. Buy this book for the next birthday gift of any child you know. You can even buy a stuffed Llama to cuddle with as you read it! Read more at www.diapers-and-daydreams.com
- Love it.
- I love the Llama, Llama books so much! My son really enjoys them (1 1/2yrs). This is a go-to favorite for nighttime story.
- I certainly liked this one and the kids I read it to, like it too, which is actually a pretty good indorsement for a kids book. This book addresses the common fear so many young children have when their mom leaves the room at night (I had the same fear as the baby Llama when I was that age, years and years ago...some things never change). The story is done if an excellent rhyming fashion (and, no, my mid-west accent/twang does not interfere with the reading one bit) and the illustrations are great and eye catching. Like another reviewer, I love the facial expressions conveyed here. This is an excellent beginning reader and an excellent one to read at bed time with your child. Recommend this one highly.
- My daughter loves Llama Llama! We bought this to go in her Easter basket
- such a precious book! love the llama llama series!!
- Bought the book for one year old girl.
- My daughter loved this book. I got this as gift for new baby.
- I read reviews of this product that said kids started displaying some of the behaviors in this book after reading it. I have 2 kids - neither did that. I'm sure that this can happen since certain kids are impressionable - even with cartoons. But I think ultimately if you are consistent with what is expected from your child, mild behaviors that have to be corrected are not an issue. It's part of them learning and testing boundaries. My sons will sometime do this when they see a child acting out in a grocery store line.The book is very colorful, has great illustrations, and the verse is catchy. It holds my 2- and 4-year-old boys' attention very well, and my 2-year-old asks for the llama story almost immediately when we go to his room for bedtime. I have other books in the Llama Llama series, and all of them are great. If you are uncertain about the story after reading multiple reviews, you may want to get the book from the library and read it. Also her book Llama Llama Time to Share is a good one as well.
- Probably my 2 year old's favorite book. It has held his attention since he was one. He laughs every time we read it.
- The child adores the book. Am planning to order more of the author's works very shortly.
- Most parents and grandparents will have a wry smile and nod of recognition while reading this book! Found this book on Amazon's book editors "100 Children's Books to Read in a Lifetime", which has been very handy in directing me toward books for our four grandchildren that had been published after my own children were young, and in reminding me of books I'd forgotten (need a new lock for that memory bank!) Anna Dewdney does a nice job of matching rhymes with her own whimsical illustrations in recreating the real-life scenes grandparents can recall with their own children (and young parents may be currently experiencing), in which Baby Llama (in his red pajamas) is read a bedtime story by Mama Llama, after which he's kissed goodnight and Mama heads downstairs to a sink full of dishes.Baby starts feeling a bit apprehensive in the dark, and begins the usual childhood ploys for getting Mama back in the room... he needs a drink, calls out for her, but she's preoccupied with dishes and then a phone call. He begins wimpering, moaning, crying, hollering, stomping and pouting, jumping and shouting... wondering possibly "if Mama Llama's GONE?" Mama finally comes back in, a bit frustrated at first, then softening as she realizes he just needs a bit of reassurance... "Little Llama, don't you know, Mama Llama loves you so? Mama Llama's always near, even if she's not right here." After a double dose of kisses, he's then able to snuggle into his pillow and fall asleep.Oh my goodness, did this book rattle my memory bank... though I can look back on it now and chuckle, I recall being five months into pregnancy with my second son, attempting to transition the first one (@ 2-1/2 years old) into a "big boy bed". The bottom of the baby bed had been lowered as far as it could be for quite a while, and we were nearing the time we'd have to raise it all the way back up! "Numero Uno", as I affectionately call him, was SO happy - we have a picture of him all tucked in on his first night, his trusty Glo Worm (a stuffed toy from the early '80s) at his side, great big grin on his face... until I walked out. Oh, the bedtime battle of wills between parent and child!Sometimes all it takes is that extra bit of reassurance. That's how it was with my younger son, and with our oldest grandson. But as for my own oldest and our middle grandson (HIS son), all I could do - when "Numero Uno" told me about his struggles in trying to get his second son to stay in bed and go to sleep - was to give a wry smile and nod of recognition - and a big ol' wink! Cute book, fun to read, and certainly worth a try!
- This is currently my 2 year olds favorite of the Llama Llama series. We read this book EVERY night. This book teaches a great lesson about patience, while reinforcing that mamas love their babies even when they aren't around. My son laughs out loud every time at the pictures of Mama Llama frantically running upstairs in response to Llama Llama's freak out.I love reading these books out loud. As a warning, you will hate this book and the others in the series if you do not like books that rhyme every other line.I find the 1 star reviews for this book amusing. This book is NOT connected to CIO in any way. ***Spoiler alert for any precocious toddlers that might be reading*** Baby Llama gets impatient while waiting for his mama to come back upstairs, works himself into a frenzy and then gets anxious that maybe mama is GONE forever, and throws a temper tantrum because he wants his mama NOW. Mama Llama almost kills herself running upstairs to save him, and once she realizes he's not being murdered she explains that his behavior was not necessary and that mama is there for him and loves him even when she isn't physically with him. Baby Llama looks properly embarrassed, and then goes to sleep.Llama Llama's face is quite expressive, and many of the pictures are hilarious. Highly recommend this book.
- My brother-in-law heard Migos rap to Llama Llama and he insisted we get the book. It's a cute story and now I can't help but "rap" it while I read it.
- We love this book. The illustrations are great. It's one of our go to bedtime books.
