In this sweet book, perfect for the preschool child, Llama, Llama Misses Mama demonstrates that the first day of school can be traumatic for even a llama. The shy, but brave Llama goes off to school, along with all different types of animals dressed in their new school clothes. At first Llama is unhappy about having to leave his mama, but soon he is encouraged by the other animals to join in the fun activities at school, playing with the other animals.
The story is told in delightful rhyme, the illustrations and colors are extra cute, and it was heartwarming to see that in the end Llama Llama, still loves his mama, but he learns to love school as well. I read this one through 3X, it is just so cute. There are a few other cute titles in this series which I hope to read at some point:Llama Llama, Mad at Mama and Llama, Llama Red Pajama.
An excellent story for little ones as they prepare to leave mama for school. Highly Recommended
