Anyone who can turn pages can read this book. And what fun it is! If you're not felling well today, the prescription for felling better—quickly—is:

A box of tissue

A cat

Cartoons on TV

A bear

And a whole bedful of other things guaranteed to make any day a happy one!

In cumulative verses using rebuses, a young boy describes all the things he will need since he is not feeling well--until he learns that school is closed because of a snow storm.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
I'm Not Feeling Well Today is an interactive read aloud that is a perfect diversion for a restless child trapped in bed. Shirley Neitzel writes the cumulative, chorused, rhyming story and illustrator, Nancy Winslow Parker, adds pictographs so a child can join in the telling. The story's young patient is demanding. He requests a special bear friend, "toast and tea, TV for you and me," puzzles on a tray and more since he's "not feeling well today". This refrain repeats until the book¹s end when there's a sudden shift as the malingering child learns there is no school and shouts "Hurray! Hurray! I'm glad I'm feeling well today!" 2001, Greenwillow,
— Susie Wilde
School Library Journal
K-Gr-2-In this cumulative rebus story, a boy is sick in bed and begins to list the things he needs in order to feel better. "I need Clyde the cat with me in bed,/and another pillow for my head,/and an extra blanket if you please,/and a box of tissues in case I sneeze-." The book also doubles as a memory test because readers must continuously review the ever-growing list of items accumulated. Parker's childlike rebus illustrations replace the text for each essential the youngster requires. The story line is reminiscent of Shel Silverstein's poem "Sick," but lacks its playful spontaneity. Neitzel's rhymes are formulaic and uninspired. While the premise and rebuses are inventive and fun, this offering is not as fresh or engaging as this team's earlier titles.-Louie Lahana, New York City Public Schools Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Rhymes and rebuses see a young boy through his perhaps-not-so-sick-after-all day off from school tale from the two mistresses of this format. Our hero wakes up feeling a tad off. As he lies in bed, he sings a little cumulative poem of the things he will need: "I need a box of tissues, in case I sneeze . . . I need an extra blanket, if you please." Blankets and pillows and a cozy cat soon give way to finger puppets and puzzles and, hey—why not?—a few cartoon programs on TV. After some tea and toast, when things get cracking, his mother pokes her head in his bedroom: "You think I'm not sick / because I did a tumbling trick? / You say if I were really ill, / I'd not complain, I'd just lie still?" Just when he's beginning to feel a twinge of guilt about the whole thing, it's discovered that there is no school that day on account of snow. "That is too bad! Hurrah! Hurray! / I'm glad I'm feeling well today!" Now that's a nifty out, allowing a good laugh where some tsk-tsking is otherwise called for. "Once again, Parker's guileless, watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations keep pace with the gathering rhyme, fitting rebuses into the verse text so that young readers can join in.
