Praise

“Soft graphite lines and even softer washed-out colors create illustrations that are as calm and comforting as warm chicken soup. With two dozen or fewer words per page, the story makes a good bedside read-aloud or read-alone. . . . A comforting book to share with a child experiencing the disagreeableness of a first cold.”—School Library Journal


“Follow along as a young child copes with a cold and makes note of everything important to feel better. . . . Kids will find comfort in the familiar ‘needs’ of the cold and knowing that they will get better soon to ‘run around and cause just a little trouble’ once again.”Kirkus Reviews


“Your child has a cold? Well, along with the chicken soup, they might welcome this book. . . . The endearing art captures the aggravation that comes along with being sick, including an overflowing basket of tissues, but also some of the perks, including an affectionate little spotted dog, who is a reminder of all the fun to be had that’s waiting just outside. Get a couple of copies for library shelves—colds abound!” Booklist
