December 2009 Book Club Selection
Llama Llama Red Pajama
by Anna Dewdney
Print/Braille edition, $16.99
In both contracted and uncontracted braille
"Llama, Llama red pajama
waiting, waiting for his mama.
Mama isn't coming yet.
Baby Llama starts to fret."
When Mama Llama shuts the light, the llama drama begins!
In this infectious rhyming read-aloud, 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.
With its sweet rendering of the trials of bedtime and separation
anxiety, this book's familiar theme will be a hit with youngsters.
Young children will love the story's simple rhyme-and wait until you see
how much fun they have repeating "llama llama" and trying to get the
words just right! This is one of the best selling books on Amazon right
"My 2 year old son loves this book. Every night I have to read this book
- it replaced Goodnight Moon! It's like a light bulb went off about
Momma being very busy because he now has a new brother, and now he
understands that Mommy still loves her Llama Llama."
