K-Gr. 1. Like Lola Schaefer's Loose Tooth
on p.1944, this book in the An I Can Read Book series plays as much with the sounds of words as with common physical experience. Sam the lamb has a cold, but he can't sneeze. He's on the verge; he's got the ahhh.
But he can't do the choo.
The rhyming nonsense words and colorful, comical barnyard pictures show various animals trying to help Sam end his sneeze, which he finally does in a rip-roaring sneezy climax "that raised the roof and shook the trees." Now that's power. Then there's the joke on the last page, when Sam thanks his friends: "Bless you!" Hazel RochmanCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
