YES, I found rhyme, it takes 4 pages, each with typical short board book text, to reach the rhyme, then begins a new rhyme. Same fine Anna Dewdney rhyme that has caught the hearts of children for years. Same great painted pages, bright colors, fun llamas to attract children under the age of 3. Sturdy construction so the toddler can hold, touch, OWN this book. What a marvelous way to enrich a crawler-to-toddler and start them on book interest. I've always loved Dewdney's Llama Llama books, since using them in elementary teaching. Now as a retired grandparent, it's fun having the new Llama Llama board book series to share, and give, to my youngest grandson.

He loves the rhyme in Llama Llama zippity-zoom. When I exaggerate the rhyming words, he tries to repeat at least the sound (just learning to talk.) We do the motions together, pretending to zip-zoom-uroom on a scooter; or mime a slide swoosh to the swing whoosh. In a couple of years I'll begin reading him the original Llama Llama books, but for now, he loves Llama Llama on the hard (board book) pages.

Original Llama Llama books were written for age 3 and up. They became a modern classic. Now a total of 4 Llama Llama board books designed for the younger tikes, will get the children interesting in reading even faster. You can't start reading to them too early. From an educational standpoint, I believe these 4 are board book perfect. And not just because I'm a longtime fan of Dewdney's Llama Llama.

I recommend all 4 board books as well as any Llama Llama older child book.
Board book titles are llama llama nighty-night; llama llama wakey-wake; llama llama hoppity-hop; and this book llama llama zippity-zoom.

Our toddler would give this 5 stars. Picked it up at the library and it was his first choice throughout the 15th-16th month. I have not renewed it for the moment so the adults could have a break. However, I can recite the entire text:

Llama llama zip, Llama llama zoom
Llama llama red pajama, vroom vroom vroom!
Llama llama swish, Llama llama swoosh
Llama llama red pajama, woosh woosh woosh!
Llama llama beep, Llama llama bop
Llama llama red pajama, screech, clunk, stop!

I think this kind of play with sounds is great for him right now, but, uh, there's not much to pull in the adults in our household.

There's also a slight problem in that the way we pronounce pajama around here doesn't rhyme with llama, but that doesn't seem to bother the tot.

My 17 month old son has always loved Llama Llama Nighty Night and Llama Llama Wakey Wake, so I thought these would be similar. However they are not nearly as creative. They're very repetitive which is just plain boring for myself and for my son. Llama Llama Hoppity Hop is the same, repetitive and didn't really tell a story. Yes they rhyme but anyone can do that!

I love llama lamma. These are bboard books that are fun to read with SMALL babies. Great sounds and simple pictures for the littles of LO's. Don't buy if you want something with a plot. Do buy if you like to read new sounds or show your baby actions as you're reading. In this particular one, I think the ending is a little dumb and doesn't have the musical quality the rest of the pages have. I'd still totally buy it again because it's exactly what I wanted.

If your child is already a fan of Red Pajama or the other Llama Llama storybooks, they are probably too old for this board book.

Our 3 year old loves Llama Llama Books. She regularly chooses one of the story books for her bedtime story. We were already owners of the original books (Red Pajama, Misses Mama, Mad at Mama, etc.) at the time and we pre-ordered all four of the board books. Our daughter was 2 at the time and we jumped on any new Llama Llama books that came out. Unfortunately, these books were a completely different level than the originals and we didn't realize it at the time because the Amazon description didn't have any age level information in it. We were very disappointed and our daughter showed no interest in the board books after the initial read. They are pure board books with very simple writing. We're talking 4-6 words per page with very little story. They may be good for babies and very young toddlers, but I can't imagine they will keep a child's interest very long. There are much better board books out there.

In conclusion, if your child is already a fan of the original Llama Llama story books like Red Pajama and Misses Mama, do not buy these books. They are not the same and are for a much younger audience. You will be disappointed.

My granddaughter absolutely loves this one of the Llama Llama books!! Perhaps because she can relate with the activities that little Llama Llama does in this book. Her mother says it was a definite hit! They took it on a flight right after Christmas and she must have read it to her at least 10 times during the short flight.

My 7 month old daughter LOVES when we read the Llama Llama board books to her. This one is her favorite - I think she likes the sounds of the words like "zoom" and "whoosh" and whatnot. She always laughs as we read it to her. I love that the Llama Llama books are short - she's at a point now where she's distracted easily, so they're just the right length to get through. We own all of the board books and will be purchasing the others as well, as she gets older.
