Book Review: Llama Llama Red Pajama, by Anna Dewdney
By Anne Angstadt
Bedtime: the time that all parents eagerly await and the time that all kids dread. Llama Llama Red Pajama illustrates the bedtime power struggle perfectly. Llama Llama gets tucked in to bed and has a bedtime story. Mama Llama leaves and everything is fine until he wants a drink. Then he gets upset when she doesn’t come right away.
All parents can relate to this situation. Kids always need something when their parents are busy. At the end of the story Mama Llama delivers a reassuring message, “Mama’s always near even if she’s not right here.” Children will find this statement comforting, and they will love the rhyming verse and silly pictures in this delightful story. Llama, Llama Red Pajama is available as an audiobook on eRead Kids.
