Children’s books are a lucrative market and a famous series is the “Llama, Llama” series. All the titles mentioned in the comic are real, and there are many more. The one I saw first was “Llama, Llama, Mad at Mama” and figured that was kind of cool, to give kids a book for dealing with those times when –it is inevitable– a child is mad at a parent. Being mad at a loved one, especially a parent, is going to be a confusing time for a little kid, and I suppose there are all kinds of difficult emotions that are addressed by children’s books out there.
That would include visiting a parent in a hospital, and seeing that parent in a weakened state… and I can only guess there are kids books that address hard topics like alcoholism or similar problems. I’ve seen childrens’ books at military posts for addressing parents being away on deployment, for example.
Brad & Chloe’s kid Watson, and their soon-to-be daughter, are going to have a lot of stressful times ahead.
