Bob, Not Bob by Liz Garton Scanlon & Audrey Vernick

- Louie Has The Worst Cold Ever! -

Little Louie isn’t so little that he needs his mom every minute, or is he? In Bob, Not Bob! when Louie gets sick with a cold he would be happy if his mom checked on him every three minutes, or so. 

But as he feels worse and worse and as his cold progresses he has a problem. When he calls for his mom, it comes out as bob. Unfortunately, his dog is named Bob, and Bob is more than happy to come running. 

The following day Little Louie is even sicker. His lips are chapped and his eyes gunked. And to his disappointment having a stuffy nose is causing more than just the word Mom to be misunderstood. 

But will his mom be able to sense what Louie needs?

My Thoughts

What Concerned Me: Nothing

What I Liked Most: The book should be read as though the reader has the worst cold ever. The story should please a classroom of children, or an individual child (especially one with a cold).

Even parents will be tickled at the slobbering dog who misunderstands Louie as well as their own memories and experiences with children.
