I guess it just depends on your own experiences with your child whether you enjoy this book or not. Any parent who has a toddler/preschooler who goes to defcon 4 after being tucked in every night, only to collapse in giggles when you come to find out what in the WORLD is wrong, knows what Mama Llama knows: the child (or llama) is probably fine. There're dishes to be done and the flippin' phone is ringing and I'll take care of those for a few minutes while I wait to see if the child self-comforts.
I do agree, it is a little bit disquieting to see that little llama does seem ACTUALLY afraid rather than just stalling at bedtime, and yes Mama did say she would "come up soon" giving little llama reason to think she would soon appear. But still I don't disagree with how Mama Llama handled it. Kids/llamas need to listen and learn from Mamas that of COURSE I'm never going to leave you alone in the house all by yourself and of course I will be there for you when you have a genuine need. But we are not going to have a tantrum every night at bedtime, no way no how. I could hear myself saying the exact speech that Mama delivered.
If this had been Little Llama's first meltdown of this sort, then maybe I'd feel less empathy toward Mama. But I'm guessing Little Llama pulls something like this more often than not.
If it were just me, I'd give this book 4 stars. I loved it and the pictures are probably the most terrific illustrations I've seen in any kiddie book.Read more ›
