Llama Llama Book Series and Sets
The Anna Dewdney Llama Llama Books Are So Popular!
Any of you with older babies and toddler probably have heard of the Llama Llama books. The Llama Llama book series is an adorable book set for children about--you guessed it--a baby Llama and his Llama Mama. The books all have a melodious rhyme that children LOVE to listen to (my son is 2 and could literally read these books every second of every day) and they all teach a lesson, too.
Red Pajama Book
This was the first in the Llama Llama book series I read
Anna Dewdney hit the ball out of the park with this book, in my opinion. We first heard about it at my son's daycare. His teacher told me that all the kids were simply enthralled by this book. I didn't know anything about it until I bought it and gave it a read. It is SO cute! In my internet travels, I learned that there was actually some controversy with this part of the Llama Llama book series.
When Baby Llama goes to bed, he starts to miss his Mama and even feel scared. So he calls to his Mama who doesn't come right away. The books is meant to demonstrate that sometimes patience is needed when you wait for Mama, but supposedly some parents were put off by it. I think it's a *great* message to teach kids, however! Mama Llama does come to Baby Llama at the end of the books and explains to him that she's always nearby.
My son loves to read this book. He turns each page saying "nomma nomma red panomma!"
Llama Llama Red Pajama
Llama Llama Red Pajama Plush Doll Toy - Super cute Baby Llama stuffed animal
I couldn't resist getting my son this plush Llama Llama toy along with his books. It's a great size for snuggling in bed, and it's a great incentive to get him INTO bed at night (on nights he's being difficult). It's easy to convince him to go to bed when his favorite character is already wearing his PJs and is ready for bed, himself!
This adorable Llama Llama stuffed animal also comes with an attached llama stuffed animal (Baby Llama in the Red Pajamas book has a stuffed toy with him in bed).

Great books in the Llama Llama book series
All of the below Llama Llama books are hardcover -- these are probably best if your son or daughter can handle real pages delicately. For the most part, my two-year-old is pretty good at this, but if he gets excited the pages can get a bit bent! He's been showing his independence lately, so aside from the Red Pajama book, he constantly asks for "Llama Mad Mama" (which is "Nomma Mad Mama" to him).
It's so fantastic if you can get your little guy or girl into reading at an early age. Not only does it help them to better learn language by listening to you talk, but it also gears that up to understand that reading can be fun. Not everyone is keen on reading (my husband is a prime example), but better to let them make the decision later in life than to grow up not liking it, don't you think? These are actually a fun read for parents, too.

These board books are very sturdy and perfect for toddlers and even younger. Plus, this are relatively cheap so you can buy them all and make a Llama Llama board book set.

Llama Llama Book Set
4 Llama Llama books
This is a great option if you're looking for a Lama Lama book set. This one comes with Llama Llama Holiday Drama, Llama Llama Mad at Mama, Llama Llama Misses Mama, and Llama Llama Red Pajama. We haven't read the Holiday book quite just yet (we are so freshly off of the holidays that I'm not sure I want to crack that one open quite just yet!) but it has really good reviews.
I have to say, for the record, the Llama Llama Misses Mama book really tugs at my heartstrings!
