Title: llama llama red pajama
Author: Anna Dewdney
Plot: Mama Llama puts Baby Llama to bed. Baby Llama gets lonely, scared and worried and needs a drink. Mama Llama is doing the dishes and gets a phone call. Baby Llama, whimpers, whines, cries, screams, yells. Finally Mama comes running. Sure she is mad for a minute (after all drama rhymes with llama) but very quickly it is cuddles, kisses, loves and hugs.
Personal Experience: We have had this book for 36 hours from the library. I have read it three times, out-loud, to my daughter (yes, I am an idiot). My smart 2 ½ yr old LOVES this book. Baby Llama is her new role model. The last three bed times (nap, night, nap) have been three of the worst we have ever experienced.
Recommended for: Parents who do not care if their children go to sleep. Parents who want to encourage their children to have a fit at bedtime.
Disclaimer 1: There is a series of Llama llama books. They might not all be pure evil. The art is cute and the rhyming is nice.
Disclaimer 2: I do not work for the publishing company (just in case you thought I did.)
