Mama Llama tucks her baby into bed, but Baby Llama gets scared after his mama goes downstairs. He whines at first and then hollers when his mama doesn’t immediately come right back into his room. Children relate to Baby Llama’s need for comfort from his mama and the reassurance that she gives him to be able to sleep.

Activity: Have students write about a time that they were scared and what they did to comfort themselves or what a parent did to comfort them when they were upset. Did the same thing happen again? Or did they overcome their fear?
