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.

I gave this book five stars because I love all the llama llama books I do have a couple co plants, but first it has great pictures and the moral of the story is good. My son is two and half loves to read this over and over again. My two complaints are perhaps he was too young for this or overly sensitive but since we started reading the book he only wants me to put him to bed, only wants me to feed him dinner....and so on. He references the tear when the llama cries a lot. My next complaint has to do with the book, it uses the word "hate" on one page llama llama "hates" that book, I am a teacher and this is horrible working to have in a childrens book. I don't want my child or any other using that word. It bothered me so much I whited it out and wrote "doesn't like" problem solved but needs to be eliminated.

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.

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.

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.

I realized how great this book was for preschools when I was helping out in a preschool, and there were a couple of new kids. Luckily, another child had brought in this book for his own adjustment to "school," and so I was given the opportunity to read it to the class at the beginning of morning circle time. I read this book at the same time for several consecutive days, and I really do think it helped the new kids adjust. I have since bought a copy for the preschool to keep as its own.
