Overview

An amusing, heartwarming story about the unavoidable stages of dealing with a cold. What does a cold need? It needs a comfy bed by a window, warm socks, Grandma's chicken soup, and plenty of Dad's silly jokes. In this warmly written picture book about a girl waiting for a rotten case of the sniffles to run its course, she and her family learn an important lesson--a cold needs what a cold needs.

Reviews

Being sick is never fun, but it helps to know exactly what a cold might need to go on its way. Follow along as a young child copes with a cold and makes note of everything important to feel better. . . . Sheban's soft-edged illustrations join Bottner's soothingly paced text, offering full-page and vignette illustrations to accompany complex sentences beat by beat and slowing down for languorous double-page spreads where a single clause or simple declarative sentence stops to take its time for, for instance, some 'music and a long, deep afternoon nap.' . . . Kids will find comfort in the familiar needs of the cold and knowing that they will get better soon to 'run around and cause just a little trouble' once again. --Kirkus Reviews


Soft graphite lines and even softer washed-out colors create illustrations that are as calm and comforting as warm chicken soup. With two dozen or fewer words per page, the story makes a good bedside read-aloud or read-alone. . . . A comforting book to share with a child experiencing the disagreeableness of a first cold. --School Library Journal Follow along as a young child copes with a cold and makes note of everything important to feel better. . . . Kids will find comfort in the familiar 'needs' of the cold and knowing that they will get better soon to 'run around and cause just a little trouble' once again. --Kirkus Reviews
