Recently, I stumbled upon something on social media and all I could think was, “You guys! Where have I been?!”
In case you haven’t heard, artists are rapping the popular children’s book Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney and it is absolute perfection.
You probably already know, but the story is about a little llama that gets tucked into bed at night by the llama mama. When the llama mama leaves, the little llama proceeds to worry about the mama and when she is going to come back. Don’t worry though, mama comes back and puts the little llama in the red pajamas at ease.
The story is cute enough, but who knew that the rhythm of the rhyme in this book would be such an amazing rap? Well, apparently J. Cruz did. He’s the host of a popular Los Angeles morning show on Power 106 and he has asked quite a few artists to freestyle rap the book now, saying during one of the events that they would be rapping for his child.
If you think all of this sounds ludicrous, you just have to see the rap done by, well, Ludacris to set your mind straight.
Check it out:

We have both of these books and really enjoyed them. They’re great learning tools and lots of fun for everyone. (The first one listed comes with a CD.)
