This is a good book for younger primary grades. This is about baby llama who is put to bed by his mom, but when he calls for her she doesn't come because she is busy doing something else. This causes baby llama to get scared and scream, mama llama comes running and explains to baby llama that she is busy, but is always with him. This book would be good for independent reading time or as just a light-hearted story time. One thing this could be used to teach in the classroom is patience. ( )

This book is about a llama and his bedtime routine, primarily consisting of reading books, needing a glass of water, etc. I would recommend this book for preschool and kindergarten aged students. This is primarily because of the small amount of text that is on the pages. ( )

Baby llama is not happy being away from his momma, and panics when she is away even for a little bit. Mama teaches baby llama that she has to step away, and thats ok because she still love baby llama anyway. A great book for very young children learning to read, and even teaches a lesson on being patient, and not panicking, as baby has to be patient when his mom is doing things. Rhyming throughout the book makes it a nice read aloud for my kindergarten students. ( )

Very cute story to read. Love the sing-song rhyming words. Gave this to my grandson; it came with a little stuffed llama, wearing red pajamas, and I bought red pajama's for the boy, too. ( )

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.
