Children's Book Review

I’m very excited about this month’s book review. My son received Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney as a Christmas present.  I wasn’t familiar with the book, but I instantly loved it, and so did Thaxton!  A few days after receiving the book, my husband casually called out the title of the book, and Thaxton walked to his room.  I was amazed after a moment when he returned with the book.  (To top things off, he had to grab the book from underneath a stack of books on the ottoman in his room. It wasn’t exactly right in front of him.  Now I have fun every day challenging him to with a game of “find a book.”  I call out titles and most of the the time he grabs the right book.)


Llama Llama Red Pajama

Llama Llama Red Pajama is a fun and upbeat bedtime story.  It has a great rhyme scheme and rhythm your baby will love, and all moms should be able to relate to the fun story line.  Llama Llama Red Pajama is ready for bed, but when his mommy leaves the room, all is not well.  Baby Llama starts out with a small whimper for his mama and gradually gets louder and louder in his cries for his Mama.

Mama, busy tidying up the house, finally runs to her baby and tells him to “stop the llama drama and be patient” for his mama.  Then she gently reminds Baby Llama that she loves him and that she “is always near even when she’s not right here.”

As a mom with a baby who’s had a lot of issues falling asleep and staying asleep, I instantly related to the story and got a good laugh out of it.  If you really get in to reading the story, your little one should also enjoy it even more.  They’ll also love the fun and colorful pictures.

I was excited to find there’s a whole series of Llama Llama Books. We purchased Llama Llama I Love You for Valentine’s Day, and I’m planning on getting LLama Llama Easter Egg very soon.

Do you have any of the Llama Llama books?  I’d love to hear your book recommendations!
