Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney

A dear friend/family from my NC gave this book to us just after E was born.  Online reviews seem to target it for a 2-5 year old audience but we've been reading it since he was about 10 months old.  The pictures are fantastically colorful and little Llama's facial expressions are fun and engaging.  It's a sweet story about the bedtime hour and it works as a simple narrative. The sing song rhyming makes it particularly easy to read aloud and as a result it holds the interest of even very young children.  I've given this book as a gift to children aged 12 months to 4 years old and it's been a hit across the board. Our copy has been ripped to shreds by excited little hands but it's not really an issue seeing as I've memorized by now!

Anna Dewdney ( has a whole range of fun books about Llama Llama and other animal characters but this one is my favorite by far.
