Sick, sick. A book to make us feel better!

Ah, fall. The lovely leaves, cool, brisk days and bring on the colds! Yup, the kids are sick. But, fear not. We've got a book to help uplift the spirits.

Our family loves the Bear books by Karma Wilson and illustrated by Jane Chapman. And, low and behold, there's one especially for those sick days. Bear Feels Sick is a sweet, comforting story for the kiddos when they're stuck in bed with the ills. Autumn arrives and bear feels unwell. He's stuck in his cave and doesn't feel at all like playing with his friends. But, lucky him, his friends are kind and take care of him. He finally sleeps it off and starts feeling better.

Bear Feels Sick by Karma Wilson, illustrated by Jane Chapman. Margaret K. McElderry (imprint of Simon and Schuster) (September 2007), 40 pages, ISBN 9780689859854
