cold and flu season

Well we've been hit pretty hard so far with this cold and flu season. It seems we're no sooner recovering than another cold hits. There's nothing I like more when I'm sick than to curl up with a good book! One of my favorite sick day reads is A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip C. Stead and illustrated by Erin Stead. Nothing can make one feel better than good friends and this charming picture book captures just that sentiment. Amos McGee is an ever faithful friend until one day he gets sick but his friends now rush to his side to help him get well soon! I love the woodblock print illustrations washed in touches of soft colors with a bit of quirkiness. Hope you are all feeling well!
