This is a humorous, silly rhyming story of mounting chaos. A mother leaves her son in charge of the farm one day and many animals come down with the flu. Caring for the sick creatures in the manner that he knows his mother would care for him, the book’s refrain is:” But I knew what my mom would do/if it were me who had the flu.” This gives lots of opportunity to discuss what your mom does for you when you have the flu and how your own personal household will handle the dilemma. The boy puts the cow in bed; complete with tissues and alfalfa tea and he pops the piglets into the tub to give them a belly rub. He even makes popcorn for the sick donkey to ease his pain and suffering.
The pictures are expressive and very hilarious. They truly make the text come alive. The boy discovers that pampering has its limits and he is being taken advantage of so he removes all the toys and the TV, just as his mother would do, resulting in instant wellness and healing in the animals. After all his nurturing and effort the boy himself comes down with the flu and well…read it to see what transpires. It is a great, fun read aloud. Seeing the turkey work the remote control and the chickens sipping juice boxes will bring lots of smiles and giggles to your family. I would recommend you get a copy and add it to your collection.
