Llama, Llama red pajama

waiting, waiting for his mama.

Mama isn't coming yet.

Baby Llama starts to fret.

In this infectious rhyming read-aloud, Baby Llama turns bedtime into an all-out llama drama! Tucked into bed by his mama, Baby Llama immediately starts worrying when she goes downstairs, and his soft whimpers turn to hollers when she doesn't come right back. But just in time, Mama returns to set things right. Children will relate to Baby Llama's need for comfort, as much as parents will appreciate Mama Llama's reassuring message.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Llama llama is a bit whiny and ill-behaved I like the idea of the llama llama character and the moral of the story but I have mixed feelings about the whiny and somewhat ill-behaved llama we see half way through the book. We'll see how my little one turns out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The original! The one that started it all! We love this series and this first is a must have. Little Llama need for comfort will resonate with your toddler and the rhyming perfect pentameter will keep it catchy and hold little one's attention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from true-to-life experience for children This story is very well written in rhyme. It takes me way back to when I was a wee one wanting to see my mama one more time before I could get to sleep. Baby Llama reminds me of when my own children would call for a drink, or one more story, or one more hug and kiss - just to have me near - anything to not have to go to sleep yet. Llama Llama Red Pajama is a story the youngest children will be able to understand and relate to, plus the illustrations are delightful.
