My 4 year old son loves this book.
Gs mommy
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.

It is a good book to read before the first day of school.

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.

Obviously the idea is a good one, but I don't like that llama llama uses the word "hate". I got rid of this book, as I don't want the word "hate" in my 3.5 year old's vocabulary at this point. Not only that, but she is excited to start pre-school, and I think this book could open the door for her to be anxious, or expect to not like school. Perhaps this book could work for a child that is already not happy at school.

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.

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.
