Comforting Books for Sick Days
A playful take on a topic that all parents can relate to: getting sick! The ever-lovable Miss Bindergarten is not feeling well. The flu strikes on Sunday, so she has to stay home from kindergarten on Monday. Mr. Tusky (who is a wee bit rusty) will be her substitute, but it just won't be the same.
It's almost Groundhog Day! But this year Groundhog is not feeling well. Dr. Owl diagnoses him with the flu and orders two days of bed rest. Then Groundhog has an idea: He can hire a substitute! Maybe Squirrel can be the substitute, or Eagle, or Bear.
Friends come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. In Amos McGee’s case, all sorts of species, too!
Every day, Amos spends time with each of his friends at the zoo, running races with the tortoise, keeping the shy penguin company, and reading bedtime stories to the owl.
Jordan is home from school because he is sick, but his real problem is that he is bored. His solution lies in using his imagination to transform the objects in his room into springboards for a series of adventures.
