Bob, Not Bob!

There aren’t many picture books about being sick, probably because being sick is not fun for kids (or anyone). But when Little Louie’s nose is so stuffed, no one can understand what he says or what he really needs. And it’s funny! So enjoy Bob, Not Bob! by Liz Garton Scanlon and Audrey Vernick, illustrated by Matthew Cordell.

  1. I love the cover, and am in search of a copy.

  2. This is a humorous book, even if it is about being sick and stuffy.

  3. I agree with Maria (above) I came across this book at my library not that long ago and thought it was marvelous.

  4. What a great book. I remember reading poems about being sick when I was a child and found them comforting. Love the cover!
