Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–With its sweet rendering of the trials of bedtime and separation anxiety, this book's familiar theme will be a hit with youngsters. 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. This story has a simple rhyme scheme, using natural language that children will enjoy. The large, boldly colored pictures have a grand and sweeping quality, extending out to the edges of the pages. Baby Llama's facial expressions capture his fear and alarm wonderfully. The contrast between light and dark enhances the drama in the story. This effective read-aloud will be a popular choice for storyhour and one-on-one sharing.–Corrina Austin, Locke's Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada

From Booklist

PreS. After Mama Llama reads Baby Llama a bedtime story and turns out the light, the llama drama begins. Feeling alone without his mama, Baby Llama wants a drink and calls down to Mama, who says she'll be up soon. But Baby Llama frets, whimpers, boo-hoos, pouts, and shouts. What if Mama is gone? At last, she appears (she was talking on the phone), and reassures her baby that she's "always near, / even if she's / not right here." Dewdney gives a wonderfully fresh twist to a familiar nighttime ritual with an adorable bug-eyed baby llama, staccato four-line rhymes, and page compositions that play up the drama. The simple rhymes call out for repeating, and the whimsical illustrations cleverly dramatize the increasing panic. Key worry words, such as fret, are highlighted, and for extra humor, Baby Llama's toy llama mimics his every expression. A real charmer that will leave preschoolers giggling and parents appreciating the familiar scenario. Julie Cummins

Wow, my Wife and I are loving this series of books and our 2yr old LOVES his llama books! We started with "Llama Llama Mad at Momma" because it was helpful in teaching our son how to behave and be helpful in public. We were a little apprehensive about "...Red Pajama" because some of the reviews seemed to indicate that Little Llama was simply being ignored while he was suffering some traumatic event alone in his room. NOT THE CASE! Basically, Little Llama is put to bed and doesn't fall immediately asleep, which is normal. Then Little Llama bored & alone decides he wants Momma and asks for some water, which is normal. Meanwhile, Momma is downstairs washing dishes and dealing with telemarketers, which is very normal. Then Little Llama decides that throwing a tantrum will accomplish his will and works himself into a panic, normal even for well behaved children. When Momma hears his cries she literally drops everything and comes bolting through the door to find her child in his own manufactured state of despair. The book ends with Momma clearly explaining that sometimes Momma is too busy to come right away but it doesn't mean that she isn't on her way or that she doesn't love him. What a great lesson for children! In the real world sometimes mom & dad are busy but trying. Sometimes mommy is on the potty and baby must wait. Sometimes daddy is watching football and... ok just kidding. Anyway, our son enjoys the rhymes and the amazing artwork, and we love that we can use it as a learning tool.

For those who rated this book with one star - I offer this rebuttal. The mother is aware the child would like a drink of water. She was going to finish a task and bring it up when she is interupted by a phone call. Seems like this might happen at my house. Until the child begins to make quite a fuss, she is not aware he is stressed. I will concede the admonishment may be a bit much, but I chose to focus on the comfort given at the end. The lesson being that just because Mom isn't right beside you doesn't mean she isn't close enough to protect you. My 20 month old son loves this book and we discuss why he might be afraid in the dark and if it is a rational fear and how to appropriately deal with those fears. As with any book, this book provides an opportunity to discuss with your child if the behavior of the characters is appropriate and solutions that may work better.

I certainly liked this one and the kids I read it to, like it too, which is actually a pretty good indorsement for a kids book. This book addresses the common fear so many young children have when their mom leaves the room at night (I had the same fear as the baby Llama when I was that age, years and years ago...some things never change). The story is done if an excellent rhyming fashion (and, no, my mid-west accent/twang does not interfere with the reading one bit) and the illustrations are great and eye catching. Like another reviewer, I love the facial expressions conveyed here. This is an excellent beginning reader and an excellent one to read at bed time with your child. Recommend this one highly.

I purchased this book sight unseen due to a recommendation from the Texas libraries (they have it on their list of recommended books for 2 year olds). My 28 month old daughter absolutely loves this book. She has me read it to her over and over and over again and has started chiming in with her own narration (e.g., "Mama's downstairs" and "Mama's on the phone" when she sees the pictures). The illustrations are great and I love the big text. I highly recommend this to anyone with children around age 2.

My son loves this book. Loves it. When we are not reading it it him, he pulls it out of his pile of books and opens to the same page several times daily: the page where poor little llama is most afraid (and my narration is most overwrought), and he laughs. As fellow Vermonters, we bought this book, finding it charming - well...that was before he was born (lets face it, we bought it for ourselves), and at a year old, it is the only book we find deposited in our laps over, and over, AND over again. A book that is both fun to read and hear - I buy this book for everyone who has (or is going to have) kids. It is a wonderful addition to any little one's library and esp. fantastic when you know this will not be a gift that everybody already has (10 copies of Goodnight Moon and Pat the Bunny, anyone?) and everybody enjoys. Because, after all, you have to read it 5 times a day too, right? Have some fun - buy this book.

Another good book in the Llama, Llama series. We have enjoyed most of the books in the series. If you are unfamiliar with the books, they are beautifully illustrated, brief story regarding situations and manners (or lack thereof) that toddlers face. It is told in a wonderful rhyme and any parent will enjoy the meter and flow as they read the books. My toddler enjoys this book and has learned that mommy and daddy have things to do like dishes and other chores after he goes to bed. The downside to this book is that the Baby Llama 'kind of" gets what he wants when he finally melts down - his Mama Llama comes racing upstairs to attend to him (albeit with a scolding). Since my toddler is a manipulator, I don't think he sees the distinction between Baby Llama getting worried about abandonment (which is what is supposed to be conveyed) versus Baby Llama getting some kind of response because he threw a tantrum. The good news is that he is more interested in what Mama Llama does 'downstairs' after bedtime. We have had several conversations about it since we read this book and he is now considerably more satisfied about mommy and daddy leaving his room at night (but not going directly to bed in our room). All-in-all, this isn't my favorite of the Llama Llama series, but definitely a good book.
