Llama, Llama red pajama, waiting, waiting for his mama. Mama isn’t coming yet. Baby Llama starts to fret! In this infectious rhyming read-aloud, Baby Llama turns bedtime into an all-out llama drama! Tucked into bed by his mama, Baby Llama immediately starts worrying when she goes downstairs, and his soft whimpers turn to hollers when she doesn’t come right back. But just in time, Mama returns to set things right. Children will relate to Baby Llama’s need for comfort, as much as parents will appreciate Mama Llama’s reassuring message.

Before You Sleep
#1 Bestselling and award winning children’s author, Benji Bennett, creates a new kind of bedtime reading experience that helps parents express their love for their children at the end of each day. Award winning Before You Sleep stands out from all books in its genre as inspired Benji, through his unique style and unrivalled talent, creates an emotional and lasting bond between the reader and the child. Powerful verse and imaginative illustrations by Roxanne Burchartz, of Oscar Nominated Cartoon Saloon, depict a parent and child sharing magical adventures together filled with love affection. Outselling the Gruffalo 4 years in a row in Ireland, proceeds from the sale of Before You Sleep go to the Paul Newman founded Barretstown Camp, a hole in the wall camp for sick children.

Puff, the Magic Dragon
Puff, the Magic Dragon is simply one of the most beloved songs of all time—a classic that’s become as much a part of the childhood experience as Mother Goose and fairy tales. Yet singer/songwriter Peter Yarrow and co-composer Lenny Lipton have never allowed a picture book adaptation of this magical tale…until now. With Yarrow’s and Lipton’s blessing, Puff, Jackie Paper, and the land of Honalee finally live on the page. In richly-hued paintings of the deepest sea blues and greens, Puff and his friend Jackie Paper frolic in the land of Honalee—traveling in a fantastic boat with billowed sails, climbing red castle stairs onto a balcony to meet with noble kings and princes, and watching pirate ships lower their flags for the roaring dragon. Artist Eric Puybaret has brought an entire magical world into being with enthralling landscapes, color, and characters. And everyone will love the way the artist cleverly turns the song’s end, which at first seemed so sad, into a surprising and joyful moment. This is a book which may be soothingly sung to your little one from cover to cover. It is guaranteed to be a hit with your baby or toddler.

Mrs. Bear reads him a story, tucks him in, and brings him warm milk. “Are you ready now, Sam?” she asks. “I’m waiting,” he says. What else does Sam need before he’ll go to sleep? Could Mrs. Bear have forgotten a kiss? Now this NEW YORK TIMES best-selling story, Kiss Good Night, by two of the most beloved picture book creators is available in a board book edition suitable for the youngest listeners.
