Little Llama is trying to extend his bedtime. His mother is distracted. He learns he needs to be patient. Fun rhymes and great illustrations of a llama throwing a tantrum. ( )

This is a story about a little llama who is having trouble sleeping and misses his mommy. But when he calls for her and she doesn't come right away he gets scared and impatient. Lovely painted illustrations and fun for read-aloud rhyme and rhythm make this a favorite in many homes. Teaches patience and the power of a mother's love. ( )

A reassuring book, so aptly depicting that irrational sense of abandonment. A great gift book. ( )
  MaryHeleneMele | May 6, 2019 |
Anna Dewdney does a great job of teaching children to not to be afraid of the dark and to be patient in this children's book. She chooses to highlight the Llama's whiny-ness and to show that the mother wont reward his behavior but that she is there for him even when she is not standing in the exact same room. She teaches these early childhood lessons by using rhyming schemes but by also relating the Llama to many familiar childhood fears that the reader may be enduring. ( )

Book description
This is another great story in the Anna Dewdney’s series. I think this would be a good story to have the children do some role playing. For example, you have the children act out the kinds of things that Llama did as he became more impatient and frustrated while he waited for his mama. You can also ask the children what he could have done to help himself wait more patiently for his mama. Introduce the word emotions and what the word means, and have the children help describe some of the emotions. Another activity could be to have the children draw a picture of themselves displaying a emotion and the children can dictate about the emotion in the picture and the teacher can write it down.

Llama, Llama red pajama

waiting, waiting for his mama.

Mama isn't coming yet.

Baby Llama starts to fret.

In this infectious rhyming read-aloud, Baby Llama turns bedtime into an all-out llama drama! Tucked into bed by his mama, Baby Llama immediately starts worrying when she goes downstairs, and his soft whimpers turn to hollers when she doesn't come right back. But just in time, Mama returns to set things right. Children will relate to Baby Llama's need for comfort, as much as parents will appreciate Mama Llama's reassuring message.
