Format: Paperback
My daughter and I have enjoyed reading this book numerous times. The theme was very appropiate recently when there was an outbreak of chicken pox in her school. The story highlights different aspects of chicken pox and help to prepare or soothe a child who has been exposed and/or fighting the "itch" battle. This is a good book for beginning readers because of the repetiveness and flow of the text. I would strongly recommend this book to beginner and not-so-beginner readers.

Format: Paperback
I don't know about yours, but my children are fascinated by the old fashion childhood diseases like Chicken Pox and Measles. Go figure-- but somehow it rates right up there with loosing your teeth. As a consequence, this book is very popular at our house. In fact, my newly turned 5 y.o. son made his dad and I read it with him four times last night.

As a primer it has a lot going for it. There's rhyme and pictures to give 'clues' as to what the words might be. And the print is large, well spaced for new readers, and there isn't a great deal of it.

On the down side, there are a few words that are harder, such as: yucky, mucky, itchy, twitchy, scratch, batch, and between. As you see though, there's repetition in the base forms (-atch and -ucky) so children can get some good practice.

Four Stars. Very Good Read-aloud. The topic is of keen interest to small fry and the text has a nice rhyme. Good primer material for fairly early readers. My just turned 5 y.o. had very little problem with reading it after the first time through.

There's no better story to a kid, then a story about an illness that mommy and daddy use to have. It just fascinates them and increases their curiosity of life. My kids love it and have memorized it amd read it to me all the time!

Format: Paperback
This book came out around the same time I caught the chicken pox in elementary school (back when most every kid was expected to catch it at one point or another), and I remember reading it while taking oatmeal baths and enjoying the days off school. It's a fun book and good for helping your kid get through it with good humor. It's pretty nostalgic for me, but I definitely loved it back while I was sick.

Format: Paperback
I loved having this book available to my kindergarten students. Students checked this book out to take home and every time it came back to school the kids said it was a great book. The illustrations add to the humor of the book, and the words are understandable enough for beginning readers. Great for a classroom library.
