From School Library Journal
PreS-K–The holidays are filled with fun and excitement and a lot of things to do and make, but poor Llama Llama has to wait. Patience not being his strong suit, and completely overwhelmed by all the holiday activities, he has a complete meltdown on Christmas Eve. Fortunately, Mama Llama is there to save the day with hugs and kisses and a little quiet time. Dewdney continues to display her very real understanding of preschooler mentality. This story is as familiar as a favorite ornament (and the cover glitters). Llama fans and newcomers alike will be charmed.Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library

We love all the llama books but I think Misses Momma is one of our favorites, great to read to a child going to school or day care for the first time. I highly recommend all the Llama books, esp this one for the holidays.
The author has perfected her amazing illustration style, and it shows in the rich and detail-filled illustrations of this book.
The story is very enjoyable, and very universal. I am grateful to Ms. Dewdney for keeping the focus of the season on a general holiday theme - which allows us, as a Pagan family, to enjoy the delights of the book as well as others.
I love the holiday themes presented - the sights, sounds, and images are just what little children remember of holiday time. It wonderfully addresses the need for family togetherness balanced with the joys of giving, and of course (as always) presents a very common young-child perspective. My son loves all of these books because he can relate to the very real feelings presented in them. Since he has reached the magical age (4) where holidays are a great source of fun and excitement, my son particularly likes this book because it addresses his feelings of impatience and his tendency to get overwhelmed with the preparations. We're feeling that right now with the approach of Halloween!
A difference I noticed, which I believe is actually positive -
I was slightly off-put by the overly angry expression of Mama Llama in a page of the first volume (Red Pajama), and this impression has continued to bother me. As practitioners of gentle discipline, I don't believe in anger and yelling to solve problems with children. I felt (and still feel) the look was a bit harsh, despite her reassuring words later in the story. I don't know if my son has noticed this connection, but I try to tone down my reciting of that particular passage to soften the effect of the illustration somewhat. I was relieved to find Mama Llama's countenance somewhat moderated in the second book (Mad at Mama), and found that she seemed to react to the situation with a bit more patience and understanding, which I feel all parents should try to do with their children - regardless of how dramatic the situation. The issue is completely resolved in Holiday Drama, as Mama provides smiles and gentle reassurance to her frustrated boy.
I am delighted to add this book to our collection, and look forward to many more wonderful stories from this gifted artist.
I heard about Llama Llama from my cousin whose daugther LOVES Mad at Mama. So I borrowed Red Pajama from the library and my daughter LOVES it. She's almost 4. She likes the rhymes and can now "read" it herself. After that I tried to take it back to the library and that started a HUGE fit, so we borrowed it again and then I proceeded to buy it from Amazon so she could have her own copy. I then proceeded to get the others in the "series". Am very happy with them all. However, Red Pajama and Mad at Mama are still "my" favorites! Smile!
