My daughters and I were SO excited to see another Llama llama books come out! We own them ALL and love each and every one of them. This one did not disappoint us. I started the collection when my oldest was 3 and now she is 6 and her little sis is 3 and they both still really enjoy listening to them. My 6 yr old LOVED the pictures, I'm not sure what other people were talking about it being dull and boring, I'm very impressed the author can come up with so many cute rhymes! Its a cute way to show kids what happens when you have to stay at home and are sick, how mothers take care of you, and how sweet it can be if you take care of your mama when she gets it after you ;) I highly recommend all of these books. They are cute, flow nicely, very easy to read, and love to hear my 6 yr old read them to her little sister. Hope there are more to come!
