A great book for kids learning to read ( )
  Shadow494 | Jun 20, 2016 |
Another great children's book with fantastic pictures and rhymes. I like that this book causes the reader to dig deeper into who is the mother and why other options could not be a fit. ( )

Lloyd, the young llama, discovers what kind of animal his mama really is.
  wichitafriendsschool | Mar 25, 2016 |
This is a delightful book written from the point of view of a little llama named Lloyd. He goes on an adventure to look for his mother and meets many different animals each asked the essential question of, "Is Your Mama A Llama?" At the conclusion of the book he meets his friend Llyn who of course is a llama like Lloyd and together they find their mamas. The lyrical rhythm of the rhyming prose is sure to delight readers as they go along on the adventure with Lloyd. This could be a fun addition to a unit on animals and/or animal habitats as Lloyd meets many animals who live in different habitats such as seals, and bats.

This is just a really cute children's story that would be read for fun. It also goes through different animals for when the Llama is trying to find his mother.

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)
