I have 3 grandchildren in the UK that all just got over the Chicken Pox.
I thought this book would help my grandchildren here to better understand what their cousins had.
I think the book is well illustrated and written in an easy to read format for beginners.
It is a short easy read, but one that conveys all the important info to a child about chicken pox. It seems that sometimes hearing it from momma is not as interesting as a book, and this one made an impression on her. She isn't old enough to read on her own yet, but she asks for it to be read often and she scans it alone quite a bit too.
She even snuck it into school when she went back. She wanted to share it with her class in case they had the chicken pox too.
Great idea- thanks!
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.

Chicken pox is not common anymore, so this book might be a bit out of date. But with a bit of explanation, this book can be both for learning to count and for reading. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Rob Natiuk
