Book Overview

The summer of '28 was a vintage season for a growing boy. A summer of green apple trees, mowed lawns, and new sneakers. Of half-burnt firecrackers, of gathering dandelions, of Grandma's belly-busting dinner. It was a summer of sorrows and marvels and gold-fuzzed bees. A magical, timeless summer in the life of a twelve-year-old boy named Douglas Spaulding--remembered forever by the incomparable Ray Bradbury.

Love this book. Kids love it, too.

Condition could be better

I payed for it to be a book in “good condition”, I did not know that meant for a page to be torn, for writing to be on several pages, and for every single page to have one or more Frozen stickers on it.

Cute, fun and kinda whiney

I find the Llama Llama kids show to be really well done and cute. The book is a fun read with an excellent rhyming pattern. That said I find book version Llama to be a little whiney and will probably stick to the show. My inner book worm never thought I would prefer a tv show to book series but here I am.

great book in good condition

One of my LO's favorite. Ordered a "good condition ex-library" one. I am happy with the condition.

Poor condition

The story is great, but the book quality is not. I ordered a 'Very Good Condition' and I received a book with the first 5 pages taped back together and one page partially torn out ( I guess they couldn't find the other part to tape back in). I've had very good experiences with this company until now, so I am very disappointed.

Favorite bedtime story!

Great story line! I pretty much have it memorized and I recite it to the kids when they go wild, my favorite line is “stop all this llama drama and be patient for your mama”. The only suggestion is to not buy the “acceptable” quality as it was awful (too many ripped pages).

Cute book, poor condition

I ordered a “good” condition book, but I would rate it more in the acceptable range. The corners of several pages were chewed off. Th story is cute and we enjoyed reading it, but I am disappointed in what is considered “good” condition.

The first one he sat still for

This was the very first book my 18 month old sat still to read. We received this book as a gift, and LOVE it. Being from the midwest, we do say "puh-JAAAAA-muh", so it requires changing our accent to make the book rhyme. We saw a photo of this book on a bulletin board at a bookstore about a month after we began reading the book, and my son instantly recognized it, pointed to it and started shouting "mmammma...mmmaaammma." I couldn't believe it. This one's a keeper. (The book. And the kid.)


I certainly liked this one and the kids I read it to, like it too, which is actually a pretty good indorsement for a kids book. This book addresses the common fear so many young children have when their mom leaves the room at night (I had the same fear as the baby Llama when I was that age, years and years ago...some things never change). The story is done if an excellent rhyming fashion (and, no, my mid-west accent/twang does not interfere with the reading one bit) and the illustrations are great and eye catching. Like another reviewer, I love the facial expressions conveyed here. This is an excellent beginning reader and an excellent one to read at bed time with your child. Recommend this one highly.

Great book for 2 year old

I purchased this book sight unseen due to a recommendation from the Texas libraries (they have it on their list of recommended books for 2 year olds). My 28 month old daughter absolutely loves this book. She has me read it to her over and over and over again and has started chiming in with her own narration (e.g., "Mama's downstairs" and "Mama's on the phone" when she sees the pictures). The illustrations are great and I love the big text. I highly recommend this to anyone with children around age 2.

A Must Have!

This is one of those books that children will ask to be read over and over. It is a story that all little kids will be able to relate to. The rhyming is genious, the pictures are adorable.

llama llama! where's my mama?

this book is ADORABLE...very clever rhyme scheme, very clever plot. baby llama is all tucked in his bed and gets scared when mama llama leaves. he starts to call for her--and his call escalates into a scream as he starts to envision her being gone forever instead of down in the kitchen cleaning up. mama llama does come back upstairs to baby llama (in his red pajamas) and comforts him but explains that just because she isn't right in front of him doesn't mean that she's left him forever. this book parodies a scene any parent has encountered--it's hilarious and well done. highly recommended!

Many memories will be shared over a good book, starting with the time-honored tradition of the bed-time story. Who here remembers begging their parents to read just one more book? "I promise I will go right to bed after the next one;" "I'm not tired yet;" "But I really like both of the books. I don't want to choose." Do any of these sound familiar?
