This lively lesson uses the extreme example of a mom who quits her cleaning duties to show her child what would happen if she let things stay messy. Llama Llama Mess, Mess, Mess uses the familiar rhythm and rhyme of the series, it's clever and silly as it imagines the resulting "clutter, chaos, and distress." It's cute and not too heavy-handed, showing kids the many benefits of tidying up -- including having more space to play.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
