What did you like about the book? Poor little Louie was little, yes, but not so little that he still needed his Mom every minute of the day – not until he got sick, that is, a really sick. Now he wanted his Mom to check on him every three minutes or so. His nose was clogged, his ears crackled, his brain felt full and his nose hurt. Nothing is fun to do, not even coloring or watching tv. “Mom” he calls, but it comes out sounding like “Bob” and who should come but his loving dog, Bob. “No! I wan by BOB, not Bob! BOB! BOB! BOB!” The subtitle of this book is “To be read as though you have the worst cold ever.” A super cute story with super-cute illustrations. Poor Louie, poor Bob the dog.
Anything you didn’t like about it? Nope.
To whom would you recommend this book? Read this one to your kids when they are sick with bad colds.
