Cute, but couldn't get past the creepy

First... we LOVE the Lil Libros collection! Our daughter who is almost two always picks one of these to read before bed. The art work is exceptional and frankly there's just nothing else out like this there to share Mexican & Mexican-American culture with her.
That being said... because we know the La Llorona story and grew up being terrified to go near bodies of water at night, I have to admit even though it was portrayed in a cute and innocent way, I read it once and was like, nope! Haha, it has nothing to do with what a child would pick up from the drawings, it all has to do with MY baggage around the story. Also, as other reviewers said, its really just a set of flash cards, there's no real story to it. As my daughter gets older, she really wants to be told a story. Kudos to the creators though, they are really creating valuable cultural touchstones for both parents and children.
