How does it affect the entire family when one of your kids is sick? Arthur's chicken pox is no fun but he does get to have chicken noodle soup on the sofa, he gets to take special cherry cough drops and Grandma Thora brings him treats, soothing baths and back rubs. Arthur's sister, Dora Winifred, wishes her family would pay attention to her in the same way and fakes chicken pox by draws spots on her face with a marker. A great book to teach kids about the consequences of lying. This book is also rich in vocabulary words like temperature, cough drops, soothing, suddenly, squishy, torturing and disappointed.

I am a huge fan of Marc Brown's Arthur books. I remember reading this when I was young and thinking about how I got jealous when my mom would take special care of my brother/sister when he or she was sick. This book touches on brother/sister relationships and that lying and being jealous just doesn't get you very far! Also, being sick is never fun but it's nice to know that people will be there to help out and take care of you! Arthur doesn't miss any of the fun with the help of his Grandma Thora.

My kids thought this book was very funny. I did too, but not solely for the reasons they did. Chicken pox that only lasts a week? Come on! But the main problem this created in my home was that when my kids came down with chicken pox, they pulled this book out. Uh-oh! They wanted crazy straws, and a back rub, and every other special treatment that Arthur received. But it was reassuring for them to see that chicken pox is very common, and even Arthur survived. At least I got them to try the oatmeal bath!

This book is about Arthur's chicken pox. Grandma said don't itch the chicken pox. D.W. got mad because Arthur got to eat on the sofa and she had to eat on the table. D.W. said, "but... but... but..". "No, said mom." "Is Arthur going to be better?" said DW. "In about a week" said Mom. "Then he can't go to the fair." "Fine" Said Arthur.

I think that this book would be great for kids my age because it is the best! You should also read this book if you ever had the chicken pox! Arthur went by the same thing. If you read this book, I think you are going to like or even love it! My favorite part was when Thara, his grandma, came.
