Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Amazon Best Books of the Month, August 2011 : Llama Llama is feeling crummy, sneezing, achy, head all stuffy. No school today for Llama, he’s sick at home in his red pajamas. As the day wears on and Llama starts feeling better, boredom sets in--along with Mama Llama’s coughs and sneezes. Llama Llama knows just what to do, bringing Mama tissues, a fluffy pillow, and books to read. Anna Dewdney’s latest is a welcome addition to her bestselling Llama Llama picture book repertoire, perfectly capturing the challenges of a little one home sick from school and the big dose of love that makes the best medicine. --Seira Wilson

Review

"Dewdney's artwork is the ideal foil to her rhyming verses--her characters' bleary, sick expressions alone are sure to elicit giggles and knowing smiles."
(Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2011)

"Llama is sick with a sore throat, and children who have to take 'yucky' medicine will relate to how he feels ... The story has wonderful rhyming phrases and large, colorful illustrations full of priceless facial expressions and body language."
(School Library Journal, August 2011)

More About the Author

Anna Dewdney lives in a very old house in Vermont. She has two teenage daughters and two very muddy dogs. Anna has wanted to write and illustrate children's books from the time she was a little girl, and she likes nothing better than to sit in her studio and make funny faces as she sketches her characters and writes her stories. Anna has had many jobs (in addition to being a mom); she's been a middle-school teacher and school bus driver, a waitress, a mail carrier, and a day care teacher.

Llama Llama is home from school, sick, but it is delightful to read and hear.
Again I bought 3, one for each of our grandchild families. Those kids can't get enough of the Llama Llama stories. This is the latest following the highly grandchild-acclaimed `Llama Llama Holiday Drama.' What a wonderful book to read to a child when they really are home sick from school. It will perk them up, Mama too.

All Llama Llama books do NOT fail bringing smiles and squeals of delight from young children. They love the rhythmic words and cuddly drawings that have made this series such a collectable hit with teachers, parents, adults, as well as the kids. Get the Holiday Drama book as well as this new "Llama Llama Home with Mama" for Christmas gifts. That's exactly what Nana and Pa have done, and we will read this new version prior to gifting. Later we will get the chance to read it to our grandchildren, over, and over, and over, and over. In the end, Llama Llama always learns a lesson suited for all, from toddlers to elderly seniors.

The illustration art inside is the same great Llama quality as all of the Llama Llama books. Although I'm now retired, these books are always a HUGE hit in elementary school classrooms. A must-own set for teachers, so fun to read to the class. Kids beg, "Read it again, please. Read it again." That happens every time, with every Llama Llama book. What a wonderful, and affordable, gift to give your elementary child's teacher for the holiday. Beginning homeschooling readers will read Llama Llama books till they have them memorized.

This is the latest installment of the Llama Llama series. Again, I am forced to read this book 3x in a row. This is my children's favorite series.

I love the interaction between Mama Llama and Llama Llama. My kids seem to relate well to the stories because Llama Llama reminds them of themselves. We have read it so often that my kids say the ending word (so they help me rhyme). This author has done a really good job of telling cute story that entertains kids. I especially like towards the end when Mama Llama catches Llama Llama's cold, and now Llama Llama is doing the stuff mama did for him.

Nice read for daytime or bedtime.

We purchased this on pre-order and were very excited for it to arrive.

I wasn't as pleased as I was with the first two Llama Llama books. The rhymes and rhythm in this latest installment seem trite rather than charming, and the illustrations seem rushed. Whereas "Llama Llama Red Pajama" and "Llama Llama Out with Mama" evoked sentimental feelings and misty eyes for this mother of two, I was just ready for this current installment to be over. Still, it's cute, and my children enjoyed it.

If you're new to Anna Dewdney, try "Llama Llama Red Pajama" or "Roly Poly Pangolin" first. In my opinion, these are her best books.

My son is a big fan of the llama llama series. I thought this book was really cute and held his attention. I also found it true to life (those of you who are moms and have read it will know what I'm talking about). I think it is a good book to save for a "sick day." This is definitely one of my favorites form the series.

The Llama Llama books are some of our family's favorites. The art is fun to look at, with wonderfully expressive faces on the characters. The rhymes are playful, enjoyable and easy for little ones to remember. This one is easily relatable for both parents and kids, because all children have had to stay home sick at least a few times.

The only reason this doesn't get a perfect score is the part that says Llama Llama's medicine is yucky. That may sound like a weird criticism, especially since so many medicines are yucky. But I'm finding my daughter to be highly suggestive and defaulting to what books or shows tell her rather than learning from her own experiences. For example, she was never afraid of thunder until she watched a show where they talked about thunder being scary. And now she's afraid of it. She's been fine with medicine before, but I worry that she'll declare it yucky now because the book said it is. This fear hasn't been tested yet, but I thought it was worth pointing out.

I am enamored with the other Llama Llama books. In fact, Llama Llama Misses Mama has been a part of my son's bedtime routine for months now, and I was SO ready to move on. However, this one just doesn't roll off your tongue the way the others do. I have read it aloud about 10 times to my son, and I still am stumbling over words. The rhythm and rhymes seem forced in places. I'm a big fan of the author and the series, but this one is not my favorite. Cute enough story line, but not enough substance to have this one in the regular book rotation for months on end...

We purchased this book because we own and love Llama Llama Red Pajama and Llama Llama Misses Mama. The quality of the book and pages is nice and the illustrations are pretty but we didn't especially love the story line. Also, the flow really isn't there. My son is most interested in the rise and fall of our voices as we read along; this book fell flat. Cute book to read once but we probably could have done without buying it.
