This story is a very good story fro children because it teaches them how to work together to make their friend bear feel better. This teaches children to work together and how to help those in need.

A simple rhyming text carries the story through in this one. It's a very nice text and children would enjoy the illustrations I'm sure. It works on the value of friendship and is a very nice text to share on the subject with a predictable twist at the end when Bear has to take care of his friends who've gotten sick from taking care of him in the rest of the text.

"The language, with its strong rhythm, rhyme and repetitive structure, is very appealing and lends itself well to activities that build phonemic awareness. The underlying messages about respecting and valuing others are positive. Furthermore, the stories avoid triteness."

"The rhyming text and oft-repeated refrain (Bear Feels Sick) make this book irresistible when read aloud. What more could anyone ask when under the weather than a snug house and plenty of TLC?"
