In 2005, author and illustrator Anna Dewdney introduced an endearing new character: Baby Llama. Since then, we've fallen in love with the character.
In the infectious rhyming read-aloud, Llama Llama Red Pajama, 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.
It is hard to resist Llama, Llama, you’ll see. More adventures followed, and the Llama Llama books became a hit with kids and adults.
Anna Dewdney passed away in 2016, leaving an impressive legacy of books. Her passion for the reading aloud experience, that bond that connects adults and children when sharing a book, led to the creation of the Anna Dewdney Read-Together Award.
