My Two Cents:
"When You're Feeling Sick" is a new book with some helpful advice for little ones facing a day in bed by Coy Bowles of the Zac Brown Band. My girls are finally getting to the age where they are starting to understand more about things like sick days and why they aren't feeling good. I enjoyed sharing this book with them!
The story itself is a good one. Everyone can use a little advice about how to best handle being sick without going crazy. The illustrations in this book are great! They are fun and colorful. My girls loved the pictures of the germy monsters especially. The story itself is fun but a bit clunky and lacking a bit of flow. My girls are too young to notice something like that but it threw me off my reading-out-loud game certainly. The story could have been a little bit smoother. Overall, this was a mixed bag for me but the author shows promise through his imagination!
