Hola Emma

Not really, "llevar" means "to take" for when you take things/people somewhere:

 

Yo llevo a mis hijos al colegio.

I take my kids to school.

 

Tengo que llevar estas cajas al almacén.

I have to take these boxes to the storage room.

And other different meanings. Llevar is a polysemic verb.

"Tomar" also means "to take" but when your're talking about taking medicine, for example, or when you mean "to grab something":

Toma el dinero y compra unas cervezas.

Take the money and buy some beers.

Tiene que tomar muchas pastillas.

He has to take lots of pills.

Tomar is also, as well as llevar, a polysemic verb, so you may find other different meanings.

I hope this clarified it.

Saludos

Inma
