About the Book:
Brother Cougar Cub is ill. With the help of sister, they seek the advice of their well intentioned forest friends. The Grizzly Old Bear tells him, The reason you re warm is you have too much hair. Best if you trim it as short as you dare. But, could it be that SISTER finally discovers the best remedy? The Sneezy Wheezy Day is a wonderful tale that will delight and challenge your child, but it is the paintings that will capture you and your young readers! Make sure to have your child search for the small, hidden creature on each page!

My Take:
What a cute picture book about being sick.  The pictures are bright and fun to look at and kids will be sure to love having to find the extra animal on each page.  There were a few words that will have to be explained to younger kids, but it's not excessive.  I loved how the book teaches that friends only want to help, but aren't always right and even when you have to have medicine or a Dr. to help you out, a hug can help too. 
This would be a great book to read while snuggled up to a sick child so they know they aren't alone (or even take to a Dr. appt to read while waiting).
