Llama Lllama red pajama/ Anna Dewdney

In LLAMA LLAMA RED PAJAMA, Anna Dewdney has put into rhyming words and most expressive pictures the tenderest feelings of a small child and mother during the unavoidable separation that comes with every bedtime.  Just when Mama thinks all is well and begins the nighttime chores, it starts.. loneliness, calling, waiting, fretting, whimpering, moaning, boo-hoo-ing, hollering, pouting, shouting, anxiety, weeping, wailing.....  "Baby Llama, what a tizzy!  Sometimes Mama's very busy.  Please stop all this Llama drama and be patient for your mama." It takes another bit of assurance and extra kisses to finally get the little llama tucked in for the night.  I imagine this little book would have quite a calming effect on any mother and child.
