Llama Llama Gram and Grandpa; Anna Dewdney

Viking Books for Kids - 2015

As a grandparent I'm a huge fan of Anna Dewdney's Llama Llama series books (the little ones love them too). So of course I had to immediately order this latest book when it was released earlier this month.

In this story little Llama Llama is going for his first overnight ever. He loves spending time with Gram and Grandpa even though he's probably a little nervous. He helps mom pack his overnight bag, and gets ready for the car ride. After mom leaves and Llama Llama goes to unpack his bag he realizes "fuzzy" Llama is missing and he can't stop thinking about him. However, he's still enjoying some nice  snacks and some new ways to keep busy and have new kinds of fun at Gram and Grandpa's, but when bedtime comes he is missing "fuzzy" llama.  Grandpa, however, manages to come to the rescue and makes everything all right. 




What is so nice about this book and the other Llama Llama books in the series is that they discuss a problem or issue and come up with a solution in the process. Each book is told in simple, rhyme verse which children (especially little ones) love and find easy to memorize as well.  The bold illustrations, pleasing colors and details make this book and this series a pleaser for kids, parents, teachers and of course grandparents.

  3. That last picture you shared is such a perfectly drawn "Oh no, I forgot something really important!" face. Just looking at it almost stresses me out. LOL!

  4. I love this series! I had Llama Llama Red Pajama and Llama Llama Mad at Mama practically memorized for a long time. This looks like a wonderful addition to the series. I love that it tackles 2 issues - a night away and forgetting something important.

    1. You are welcome. This is such a fun series for preschool 1-5 year olds - maybe a bit older.

  6. This sounds like a great book, especially with life's moments being addressed so gently.
