The Sneezy Wheezy Day by Sharon Cramer
At first glance THE SNEEZY WHEEZY DAY looks like a book written for pre-schoolers. After reading it though it's apparent that it's aimed at an older audience. The vocabulary is sophisticated with great words such as deduced, admirably and peered. The illustrations are charming and bright and colorful and children will enjoy the hidden surprises. THE SNEEZY WHEEZY DAY begs to be read aloud to get the full benefit of the rhymes. The humor in the story will also be noticed more by older children and I admit to laughing aloud at some of the suggested remedies especially Grizzly Old Bear telling Boy cougar to shave his own body! Not just a story about being sick, this is also a story of love between siblings. Recommended for kindergarteners and up and for sharing in a group or with your child/children.
