Kirkus Review

Llama Llama learns why tidying is important.In yet another highly familiar childhood drama, Llama Llama does not want to clean up his toys. He's having fun playing; why should he stop? Isn't it Mama Llama's job to clean up? Mama poses the question: "What if Mama never cleaned? / Imagine that! / What would that mean?" Mama zooms off on her roller skates, with a sheet for a cape, crunching snacks and dropping everything on the floor. Soon the house is strewn with toys, dirty dishes, and trash. "Crumbs and clothes and peanut shells / What's this thing? What's that smell?" Llama Llama can't take it anymore. "No more Llama / MESS / MESS / MESS!" Perhaps it is a good idea for Llama Llama to lend a hand. Helpful hints for youngsters are slipped inside: Every toy should have a place, and when making your bed, don't forget to look underneath. This second collaboration between Duncan and Morrow since Dewdney's passing feels more complete than Llama Llama Loves to Read (2018), with snappy rhythms and a twinkle in Mama's eye. Returning to Llama Llama and Mama's relationship feels like home.Cooperation makes cleaning go much fasterparticularly with friendly, rhyming llamas to show the way.
