Personally I loved this book, but my son who was and still is upset about starting preschool got sad when hearing this story. He is very close to me and doesn't like me leaving him anywhere so even though it has a happy ending he is still thinking about the little llama missing his mama, he can't get that part out of his head. When he gets to school in the mornings he tells me he is "sad like llama" and that he is "going to miss me today". So for little ones that are a little nervous but really excited about school I would say definitely buy this but if you child is like mine and not at all excited about school I would say maybe not...

The Llama Llama books are all excellent,so, of course, this is too! This book focuses on llama going to school for the first time, and missing mama llama . Once you start reading this book, you'll be amazed how accurately the author portrays llama llama's feelings as young one in unfamiliar surroundings. Llama llama is sad and isolates himself until after lunch when he begins enjoying the new experience. Of course, mama is there at the end of the day, and llama llama has a new outlook as he hugs mama llama. I highly recommend this book for anyone that has a little one anxious about beginning school!!

My two-year-old adores the llama llama books, and this has to be her favorite. The pictures are cute, the message is helpful (she's learning to stay at Sunday school without Mommy and Daddy), the whole thing is sweet.

We started reading "Llama Llama Misses Mama" after my daughter had a bad first day at preschool to facilitate a conversation about her feelings. She loved the story, but FIVE WEEKS into preschool she was still crying (loudly) for an HOUR each day. Her teacher was stumped because she was fine at drop off and for the first hour but then cried for an hour in the middle, refused to eat a snack, and then was fine for the last hour. She was making friends and said that she liked preschool, but her crying was so disruptive that we were getting to the point that we needed to remove her from school.
Then I had a lightbulb moment. My daughter thought she was Llama. Everyday she followed the exact same pattern as Llama. That night I rewrote the story to be "Llama Llama Loves Preschool!". The next day she quit crying all together. Eventually, she started eating snacks with the kids too and now she is a totally happy preschooler.

So if anyone else has a little Llama, here is the new story:
Llama Llama, warm in bed,
Wakey, Wakey, sleepyhead!
Llama has school today!
Time to Learn and time to play!

Make the bed and find some clothes.
Brush the teeth and blow the nose.
Eat some breakfast. Clean the Plate.
Whoops! Oh my- we're running late!

Drive to school and park the car.
Teacher says, "there you are!"
Kate says, "hi."
Corinne does too.
"We've been waiting to play with you!"

Hang the coat and your pack.
After recess mom comes back!
Mama Llama goes away.
Llama Llama gets to stay!

Llama loves her teacher
and Llama loves the toys
And Llama gets to see
her favorite girls and boys!

My son and I love all of the Llama Llama books but this one is my favorite. It deals with being anxious about going to school for the first time. This read helps to find comfort in school as well as comfort in mama. Since my son is a Daddy's boy I cannot find enough books emphasizing the importance of mom. I would recommend this book for any child.

Love this book for our children! Llama Llama books quickly became one of our family favorites. We started to read this to our child before they started preschool. It was perfect. The story is cute, super fun to read and the illustrations are adorable. I recommend this book and any other Llama Llama book to any parent.

Based reviews I purchased the other two Llama Llama book - Mad at Momma and Red Pajama for my 2 year old. I actually did not purchase this book as I thought since it was a 1st day of school book and my daughter has been going to daycare since she was 4 months old. The other two books quickly became some of her favorites - we bought the little Llama doll and start going "too much drama" etc. My daughter was shopping with my husband and he bought her this book as it was in the series. To my surprise this quickly became the favorite of the lot, it has been very useful to us with making the daily transitions easier for her - even though she is not being introduced to the idea of school. There is however one thing I do not like about this book - though I will stand by the 5 stars - I appreciate in the other two books that no gender is specified for Llama - in this book a pronoun he is used - I think it would have been better to keep "him" gender neutral.

My son has separation anxiety and this book is helpful by showing him that he isn't the only one who feels this way and that Mommy will always be back for him.
