We've read many of the books in the Llama Llama series by Anna Dewdney and they are really fun books to read aloud.

Unfortunately our girls are growing out of books like this, so I have to sneak them in on my own when I get a chance. This is a short and cute book that encourages being active and zooming around.

There's lots of onomatopoeia and I'm sure that the littlest ones will want to hop and clap along with this book.

The narrative and illustrations are just as adorable and entertaining as I

Lame lame llama. Shit didn't even rhyme.

A fun book that illustrates so many of the toys children love to move with and play on. The onomatopoeia keeps the book fresh and fun

"Llama Llama Zippity-Zoom," is poetry in motion with movement as the theme. Llama Llama plays with a friend on all sorts of wheeled and non-wheeled movement makers. From scooters to slides this book promotes motion and examines the sounds they may make while in action. Every page is filled with smiles showing the true enjoyment of motion. The colors are appealing to the eye and allow the reader to focus on the activity being demonstrated. After all the commotion and activities of the day there i ...more

Ever since Llama Llama hit the picture book scene in his first book, Llama Llama Red Pajama, families have been enjoying the rhythmic cadence, touching moments, and humor that characterize these wonderful picture books.

This year, Llama Llama has his own set of board books! There are three so far. Zippity-Zoom is full of action sounds and words, as Llama and his friend "vroom, swoosh, and zoom" all over the playground. Guaranteed to make all readers want to run to the nearest park, this book is e

This sturdy little board book is perfect for little ones to hold and turn the pages; not too big, and not too small. It is written in rhyme with onomatopoeia, and I believe that after enough repetition, the cute pictures would trigger them to recite to themselves. Llama llama is very active on many toys and sounds are associated with the activity, something that young children love to hear and imitate.

With a lot of little ones in my life, I'm always on the lookout for strong board books. This one's full of great beginning sound effects to act out ("Llama llama ZIP! Llama llama ZOOM! Llama llama red pajama VROOM VROOM VROOM! Llama llama SWISH! Llama llama SWOOSH!" etc) Could actually be read as a bounce (baby on lap, adult acting out motions) & perhaps become a baby's favorite that way. Exceptionally special? No. But it's simple, done right, and Anna Dewdney's rhymes never fail to scan.

Cute rhyming scheme, nice uses of onomatopoeia. (view spoiler)

I saw this book at the library and decided to take it home to read. It's a quick book, fun words, very simple, and great to read before nap.

I just found out yesterday that the day before the author, Anna Dewdney, passed away due to brain cancer. My heart broke when I read that. I love her Llama Llama books and will cherish them even more now. R.I.P. Anna!

We have read every Llama Llama book there is now, and they are all super good. My 2 year old granddaughter loves him and has since she was about 9 mths old.

This board book is more for babies or very early readers it has two or three words per page as Llama Llama and his friend play. Fun words like 'zoom' 'zip''vroom' etc. ones that make little ones laugh and giggle

These board books are a nice addition to the llama llama series. There isn't much to them, but that makes them good for very young readers, as a board book should be directed. Natalie still likes them because she already loves Llama Llama. We like that the car in this one looks like the one we have.

Despite the fact that my 4 year old had gone off of Llama Llama in general, he ADORED this one: the rhymes, the zooming! Lots of giggling and reciting, and you don't need to be a Llama Llama groupie. Nothing much happens except that Llama and his friend do lots of action things, there is a near crash but a happy ending.
May 01, 2012 Lindsey rated it really liked it
Another cute Llama Llama board book. It's a short rhyming story about how Llama Llama moves around with his friend. This one probably can't be acted out as well as Llama Llama Hoppity-Hop by energetic little ones but it is still a fun, short story.

For some reason my son didn't like this book...he's a fan of other llama llama books. I liked the onomonapea, but if he doesn't like it were not you to read it. Might give it another try in a month or two.
Mar 30, 2013 Brenda rated it liked it
My 2 year old grandchild enjoyed this book. He chose it repeatedly to be read aloud to him, but it wasn't the giggly 'I can't wait to hear this story again' kind of request. So, it's an average good read for us.

Have your little ones act out all the action in this engaging board book!

The can pretend to ride their skateboards, drive their motorbikes, hang from the monkey bars, swoosh down the slide, swing very high, drive their cars, and jump on their bouncing balls.
Sep 12, 2012 Asho rated it really liked it
This Llama Llama board book is very simple, but fun as a read aloud because of all of the sound effect and motions you can do with your baby as you read. All I have to do is say "Whoosh!" and my baby breaks into a huge grin, so his book is very effective for us to read together.

Cute, but short enough that I'd recommend to 18m-2.5 yrs. I'm sure we'll be reading these often!

This is one of the greatest books I've ever read, in all of my 5 1/2 months. I like the rhythm of the language and the rhymes.
