Llama Llama shares a story and goodnight kisses with his Mama before bedtime. But when Mama turns out the light and leaves, the llama drama begins—Baby Llama is lonely without his Mama! And maybe a little scared, too. His soft whimpers turn to hollers when she doesn’t come right back. What if Mama Llama’s gone? But just in time, Mama returns to set things right.
Anna Dewdney’s New York Times bestselling tale of bedtime anxiety comes to life in this enhanced reading experience. Listen to the wonderfully rhymed text and watch as Llama Llama wiggles, twitches his ears, and stomps and pouts as he waits impatiently for his mama. Children will enjoy discovering bubbles that pop and phones that ring, amongst many more hidden interactions on each page!
Press ‘play’ and watch as this version of Llama Llama Red Pajama adds a whole new dimension to a beloved story.

Please get this app! So my daughter (2yrs) and I read this book every night before bed. So we were taking a trip and I didn't want to forget it, so I got the app. So pleased! You can read it still with or without sound effects (they are really fun though). It has an option so it reads it for you, which she has taken to doing for herself at nap time. And it even has a Spanish option which is really fun. I am so happy that I got this app. Oh and it has slight animation too, looks just like the real book, but the eyes will blink, ears will move, little things like that. LOVE!!
Oh, and I know some people are having problems with crashing, but that has not happened to us even one time. And it is so simple my 2 yr old uses it all by herself.
Pretty Good, with a suggestion
My 3 year old loves the book, and when I saw the app I figured I would get it for him for the iPad for when we are out. We haven't had any problem with it shutting down or not opening.
The reason why it didn't get 5 stars from me - the reader of the story is very bland - maybe I am just way more animated when I read stories to little kids that I find it blah. I read the book in a very sing-song type way. My little guy loves it though, especially that Llama Llama and his mama talk a little and move a little in the app.
For a future update, I would love to have the option to record my own voice, or my husband reading the story in Arabic (his native language) for my son to use with the app.
This is a decent book to app translation. My son enjoys the print book a lot, so we got him this app for on the go. I agree that the narration lacks enthusiasm, but I think it is good to hear the story read differently then we do. I wish the animations were a little more noticeable. In fact some of them are so minute ( eyes blink) that they are practically unnoticeable. The controls to turn the page are very sensitive, and my son has some trouble with that. There is also no option to have the book read through continuously. We have also noticed that the print version has a phrase that says " whimpers softly for his Mamma" while the app says " whispers" not sure why that is. The illustrations are consistent with the book, and my son enjoys it, so I gave it 3 stars.
