Last week I checked out Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney at the library and both K and I have enjoyed it qute a bit. It's the bedtime saga so familiar to all parents where baby Llama is tucked in and realizes he needs his mama. When she doesn't come right away, he "jumps and shouts" until mama llama races upstairs frantic.
Her response: "Baby Llama, what a tizzy! Sometimes Mama's very busy...Little Llama don't you know, Mama Llama loves you so?"
I love the rhythm in the book and I can relate so well that the book is enjoyable for me. I also love that K is learning what llamas look like and now insists on reading this book in conjunction with Is Your Mama a Llama by Deborah Guarino.Llama Llama Red Pajama is $11.04 on Amazon.com, but I am a big fan of the public library system and am sure they have this book as well as others by Dewdney there.
I didn't receive any compensation for this post but feel that reading to children is vital and love learning about other books that kids of all ages enjoy and want to share what we have found.
