A little llama is curious to know if it's friends mothers are also llamas. This little llama goes around asking all sorts of animals if their mama is a llama. I think this book is very relatable for students, as they become more curious about where they come from and who they are.

This book tells the story of a young llama that is asking all of his friends if their mama is also a llama. He encounters a bat, seal, calf and many other animals and at the end of the book he finally does encounter a llama from the same herd.

Lloyd is on a quest to find out how many of his friends' mothers are llamas. Kids really enjoy the sweet and playful words,and the realistic illustrations of animals in their habitats. Rhyming, rhythmic and repetitive: formula for a Classic preschool book.

Great book for little ones new to the classroom! I think it could help a little one understand the fret of not having mom around, but that mom will always come back. It doesn't specifically speak to this subject, but I think you could relay that to young students. ( )

This modern fantasy book is about a llama who goes to her friends to see if their mother is a Llama too. First she goes to her friend, a bat, and asks. Then, she goes to a duckling, a calf, a seal, and a kangaroo. Then, she finally goes to another llama and asks the same question. The llama says that of course she is a llama, and that there are in the same herd. This made the llama feel happy because she finally found her friends. ( )

Book description
Another classroom favorite. This is a great book for talking about animals in general, about adult/baby animal terms, and practicing questions. It's got some good predictive illustration to go along with the riddle-like text, but it would depend a lot on the visual sophistication of the reader.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0590447254, Paperback)

The board book version of this popular recitation of animal characteristics is equally as delightful as other editions, with one key improvement: it's inedible. This robust reissue follows lovable Lloyd the llama on his quest to find out what percentage of the baby animal population has llamas for mamas. The rhymes are original and infectious, and the riddles are sure to have children shouting out the answers in anticipation of turning the page.

Youngsters often exhibit an insatiable appetite for adorable baby animals, and Is Your Mama a Llama provides plenty of fodder for fawning. Illustrator Steven Kellogg, however, manages to keep the pictures sweet without being saccharine. And rest assured, no matter how often your little one is compelled to kiss the critters, the sturdy board-book format will stand the test of time (and of course, slobber). (Ages 0 to 4)
