I won’t bother returning this but will instead be donating it to charity in the hopes that it ends up in the hands of someone who will enjoy it more than we do.

1) Mom is at the kitchen sink and yakety yaking on the telephone. Hello sexism.
2) My son is not yet scared of the dark, but this book almost teaches a child that there is something scary about the dark. And the illustrations while really cool looking, convey this!
3) Almost teaches a child bad behavior, yell to get parent to come quickly.
4) Lastly mother accuses child of being 'dramatic'
Its actually fun to read aloud, but we decided to use it for a month or two while he is still very young and then give it away. We tried returning it and amazon asked us to keep it.

Quick plot summary- Mama Llama (ML) puts Llama Llama (LL) to bed and goes down stairs. LL doesn't fall asleep and starts getting scared and crying. Each page flips between LL getting progressively more frightened and scared and ML doing chores down stairs and not hearing him cry. There is a climax to the story where LL is filled with terror that his mama is gone forever and the illustration reflects that fear very well (even if you child didn't understand the words yet). ML finally hears the crying and runs in (also with a look for terror) and soothes LL and gives him love till he calms down and falls asleep. Lesson of the story - "Being alone is scary and if you cry hard enough and long enough your parents will always come give you attention"
First night after reading this book as a bedtime story what do think happened.....
Second night same thing.....
Third night.....book is now hidden in a closet and will become a gift to a family we don't like.
We spent a lot of time and hard work sleep training our daughter and this story almost unraveled all of that. Its been a couple months and she still referred to "crying for Mama...Llama Llama...sleeping..etc" and she now cries for us more in the night (before the book was basically never).
So buy at your own risk but I recommend trying a different book in this series. "Llama Llama and Friends" was our second try and its great.
