I purchased this book for my kids since it was recommended by a friend. Chicken pox has been going around off and on and even friends with fully vaccinated kids are getting it, so I figured this would be a fun book to get for the kids since it's only a matter of time before they end up with chicken pox too. I love that the book goes through all of the basics of what kids can expect with chicken pox such as oatmeal baths and pink calamine lotion. It brought back memories of childhood when my little brother and I were covered in pink lotion, eating lot of ice cream and having my daddy's old tube socks on our hands to remind us not to scratch! My almost 4-year-old son calls it "my itchy book" and loves it. He has been asking us to read it to him night after night and multiple times during the day. Apparently itchy chicken pox is just as funny as farting and loose teeth to him. The large text and short sentences are excellent for new and emerging readers and the repetitiveness and rhyming of words makes it very enjoyable for young children. Even my almost 2-year-old asks for the "itchy book" daily.

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.

I bought the Itchy, Itchy Chicken Pox book for my grandchildren to read.

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.

My son loves this book and has pretty much memorized it word for word. :) I want him to get accustomed to reality since he constantly comes home, at three years old, repeating cultural norms that he has learned in daycare. I am reminding him weekly that a doctor is not ALWAYS necessary. A lot of times, mommies and daddies and his big strong body can take care of itself... Doctors are great for emergencies, but most times, the body can help itself when you give it what it needs. Books like this help reinforce that truth... because what toddler thinks their parents know more than they do?

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!

My daughter had chicken pox over the holidays. I wanted to get her a book that talked about this, and I was pleased to find this one on Amazon.

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!

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.
