From bestselling author-illustrator Pauline Oud!
“Come on, Ian,” says Mom. “You’re sick and you’re going to bed. Take off your clothes and put on your pajamas.” Mom tucks Ian in and gives him a big kiss. Ian coughs a few times and then he falls asleep.
Ian is sick. He can’t stop coughing and his throat hurts. Mom makes a cozy bed for Ian on the couch and Dad goes to the doctor to get some medicine. The next day, Ian is feeling a little better but he can’t go to school. Emma, the babysitter, stays with him while Mom and Dad go to work. They play games together and Emma makes delicious pancakes. The pancakes are magic, because Ian is soon feeling better again!
A comforting picture book about being a little sick. For children ages 30 months and up.
