From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K—In this sequel to Llama Llama Red Pajama (Viking, 2005), the hoofed protagonist goes shopping with his mother. Gradually the small annoyances of the Shop-O-Rama ("Yucky music,/great big feet./Ladies smelling way too sweet....Try it on and take it off./Pull and wiggle,/itch and cough") send the youngster into a tantrum: "It's no fun at Shop-O-Rama./Llama Llama/MAD at Mama!" With admirable patience and parenting skills, Mama tames the "llama drama," explaining to her son that they can make the chore fun by working together. Soon Llama Llama is helping Mama clean up the messy results of his meltdown and complete their purchases, and then they are off to pursue more pleasurable activities. Children will giggle at Dewdney's rhythmic rhymes. The inviting, oversized paintings are bold and colorful, and Llama Llama's priceless expressions carry the emotional arc of the story to its gentle conclusion. Add this amusing tale to your storytime repertoire or recommend it for one-on-one sharing.—Jayne Damron, Farmington Community Library, MI

About the Author
Anna Dewdney was a teacher, mother, and enthusiastic proponent of reading aloud to children. She continually honed her skills as an artist and writer and published her first Llama Llama book in 2005. Her passion for creating extended to home and garden and she lovingly restored an 18th century farmhouse in southern Vermont. She wrote, painted, gardened, and lived there with her partner, Reed, her two daughters, two wirehaired pointing griffons, and one bulldog. Anna passed away in 2016, but her spirit will live on in her books.

A lot of parents might frown upon the mama rewarding Llama Llama with an ice cream after he throws the "mother" of all tantrums in the store. Of course this type of behavior should be addressed, but as a parent, you know your child best in the world. I would estimate Llama Llama to be no more than 3 years old. I have a son this age, and I have been able to teach better lessons by exhibiting calmness, empathy, and yet still expressing that the tantrum cannot and will not continue, and that fun can be had if we work together. If I show anger...all he sees is anger, not a mama who wants to help him. If tantrums continue, we leave the store. If he can listen and calm down, there is NO harm in rewarding their ability to control their emotions. That's a GOOD thing and should be praised in small children, who are still learning about themselves.
Anna Dewdney knows her stuff. We love this book to pieces!
This is our first Llama Llama book, and we really like it. It's appropriate for his age (decently sized lettering, clear verbiage. We got the hardcover, which is a good size for the illustrations to be clear and lovely.)
