Your little one’s favorite Llama is back and he’s getting a babysitter. For years Anna Dewdney’s Llama Llama books have been helping kids work through different milestones. Llama Llama Meets the Babysitter explores the emotions Llama feels when he finds out he is meeting his babysitter for the first time.  

Llama Llama Meets the Babysitter

This text, written by the late Anna Dewdney herself, has her signature catchy rhymes that are always fun to read aloud. JT Morrow’s stunning illustrations capture Dewdney’s signature style and bring Llama’s drama to life.

All kids experience their first time being left with a babysitter and it can be scary if they don’t understand what is happening. Llama is no different. Mama Llama is going out and instead of staying with Gram and Grandpa someone new is coming over. The more he thinks about it, the more he worries. When the doorbell rings and he sees that it is Molly from the ice cream store (and she brought ice cream) he realizes that having a new babysitter isn’t nearly as bad as he thought.

Llama Llama Meets the Babysitter is filled with colorful illustrations and fun-to-read rhymes which are full of humor and comfort (and a happy ending!) There’s a Llama Llama book for every possibly scary situation so kids will never feel alone.

Llama Llama Meets the Babysitter will be released May 4, 2021 and is available for preorder.
