BOOK REVIEW: Llama Llama Mad at Mama by Anna Dewdney

About the Book:

Does any child like to go shopping? Not Llama Llama! But Mama can’t leave Llama at home, so off they go to Shop-O-Rama. Lots of aisles. Long lines. Mama is too busy to notice that Llama Llama is getting m-a-d! And before he knows it, he’s having a full-out tantrum! Mama quickly calms him down, but she also realizes that they need to make shopping more fun for both of them.

My Review:

Every parent has had at least one horrible experience in the store where a bored toddler begins to throw a fit - yelling, screaming, pulling things off the shelf. As a parent myself, I'm sure I have never handled those moments as well as Mama Llama! "Llama llama mad at mama" helps parents communicate with little ones about emotions they feel when they are bored, mad and even the love they truly feel for their mamas.

After reading this one, we couldn't wait to get another "Llama llama" book. We now have "Llama llama misses mama" and will be getting more!
