A lot of parents might frown upon the mama rewarding Llama Llama with an ice cream after he throws the "mother" of all tantrums in the store. Of course this type of behavior should be addressed, but as a parent, you know your child best in the world. I would estimate Llama Llama to be no more than 3 years old. I have a son this age, and I have been able to teach better lessons by exhibiting calmness, empathy, and yet still expressing that the tantrum cannot and will not continue, and that fun can be had if we work together. If I show anger...all he sees is anger, not a mama who wants to help him. If tantrums continue, we leave the store. If he can listen and calm down, there is NO harm in rewarding their ability to control their emotions. That's a GOOD thing and should be praised in small children, who are still learning about themselves.
Anna Dewdney knows her stuff. We love this book to pieces!
Although I like many other books with Llamla Llama, this one was just not one which I would feel comfortable for his age.
This is our first Llama Llama book, and we really like it. It's appropriate for his age (decently sized lettering, clear verbiage. We got the hardcover, which is a good size for the illustrations to be clear and lovely.)
It has always been in our nightly rotation of bedtime books. But, I was getting tired of the same book EVERY night.
I was so thrilled to find this book, which is perfect for us because she's not the best shopper.
Dewdney's books take common toddler experiences and puts them into cute, easy-to-understand narratives that children love.
We'll be Llama Llama fans for years to come, I'm sure!

great topic for toddlers.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 18, 2017
The stories in this series focus on the day to day events of the protagonist Llama Llama. The story line begins by introducing him in a context. The story builds up to a crisis where Llama Llama has a meltdown and (spoiler alert) his mom resolves the crisis by calming him down and reassuring him.
The success of the story is threefold. First and foremost the pictures are adorable. It's absolutely hilarious to see Llama Llama and his feet in various normal day to day activities. And the expressions on his face are priceless. Secondly, the story rhymes brilliantly. The rhythm of the story is addictive and makes you want to read it, and youngsters listen to it, over and over. Finally, the adventure of Llama Llama are all ones that we can relate to-- as adults and children alike. Don't we all (want to) have meltdowns when things are not exactly as we think they should be? Don't we all wish that a calming and reasonable force would come in and allay our anxieties?
I highly recommend the adventures of Llama Llama to children and their parents.
