The illustrations in this book are good but the story itself is very negative. The book goes on and on about how sad llama llama is at daycare and makes very negative statements like “I hate books”. Essentially 2/3 of the book is negative and then there are 2 pages where he is suddenly happy before his mom comes to get him. I got this for my 2.5yo hoping it would ease her emotions about going to daycare and instead she cried when we read the book and spent the next week crying hysterically when I dropped her at daycare. This book spends too much time focusing on the negative feelings and not enough time showing the positive side of daycare or why llama llama all of a sudden wasn’t sad anyone and all the things at daycare to be happy about. I will be returning this book.
